The roots of United Studios Progressive Martial Arts started with the martial art of Kenpo Jiu Jitsu. Years Later Kenpo Jiu Jitsu was blended when five masters came together and formed a mixed martial art called Kajukenbo.
It was developed in the late 1940s and founded in 1947 in the Palama Settlement of Oahu, Hawaii. Kajukenbo karate training incorporates a blend of striking, kicking, throwing, takedowns, joint locks and weapon disarmament. A driving principle behind Kajukenbo karate is transitioning smoothly from one specialty into the next to create an optimal response to any situation. This radical approach to training led to Kajukenbo karate being known as, “The First American Mixed Martial Art”. Throughout the years Kajukenbo has evolved into distinctive branches. One branch being Karazenpo Goshinjitsu the art in which our Kempo Jiu Jistu was recreated.
Over the years our martial arts curriculum has stood the test of time teaching thousands of students our Kempo Jiu Jitsu system. We have vowed to always keep the Kempo Jiu Jitsu system at the core of our school.
Our vision is to continue to add full programs in many other martial art systems. Currently United Studios PMA offers a few programs in which student can earn separate black belts.
