My 9 year old daughter has been going for almost a year and she LOVES it. I am absolutely happy that we decided to go here when we were choosing a location to participate in. She's learning so much and progressing well. Every one here is attentive to the individual need of the students and go above and beyond.

Riverton USSD has, by far, the best karate Sensei's. My daughters have been attending for 2 years and love it! They both have their blue/green belts and have worked very hard with dedicated instructors to earn them. Each Sensei has a unique way of capturing the attention of the students to draw them in to teach them. My daughters know their moves (kempos, DM's etc) backwards and forwards, literally.
Riverton USSD treats each student (and parent) with respect and always gives plenty of notice for changes or upcoming events. Several times a year they have special activities for the younger kids, which my girls always look forward to.
I recommend Riverton USSD to anyone young or old!

My son started at USSD when he was about 6. He continued with it until he earned his blackbelt at age 18. He loved it and I loved it. Not only did he martial arts, but respect, discipline, concentration, etc.. The Riverton dojo is the best. Senseis Garvey and Jessie are great. They really know how to work with kids of all ages. I can't speak lye highly enough of them.

I LOVED having my son go to this dojo. Such an amazing, warm place of growth and love. I was very impressed with all of the leaders. I was very grateful that a time for homeschoolers was offered during the day. Very sad when we moved states and could no longer attend there.

We LOVE USSD in Riverton! My son has taken karate for 2 and a half years now- and really enjoys it. We love the self-mastery and positive self image he has thanks to their teachings. I highly recommend anyone interested in martial arts take an serious look at them.

I'm so thrilled about what karate is doing for my kiddo! She's gaining confidence and coordination, and she knows that her senseis care about her. Can't recommend highly enough!

The BEST self defense studio in the state!! I tried many other studios and none could compare to the training, guidance, encouragement, and love that USSD Riverton gave my son. The confidence that they helped him achieve changed his world. I recommend them to everyone. Everything is taught with enjoyment in mind. My son learned to defend himself and have a good time both. Sense Jessie and Sense Garvey hold very special places in the hearts of my family!!

Jaxson has been a part of USSD since he was 4 yrs old, he will soon be 14 yrs old and USSD is part of his life and his family! They have taught him so much about growth, discipline, respect, and loyalty! He is committed or addicted to USSD, I haven't decided which one! Thanks for all you do USSD for kids and adults! Much respect!
