Z-Ultimate Self Defense Studios, LLC – ZUSDS – is a part of a family of martial arts companies formed with one goal in mind – to provide “Z-Ultimate” martial arts experience for students and their families by providing life changing and character building experiences through world-class personalized martial arts instruction. It is the largest martial arts company of its kind, with locations in the Midwest and on the West Coast.
What is unique about Z-USDS – besides it’s Dynamic Mastery Method™ of instruction – is that it is NOT just an association or license, where any martial artist can pay a small fee and use the rights to the logo and attain certification. There are many such organizations that boast hundreds, even thousands of members with this model.
Z-USDS has done something that has rarely succeeded in the martial arts industry, and never on a scale of this size. With Z-USDS, each and every location is under one umbrella, closely managed & supported by Corporate Headquarters and the Board of Masters, as well as serviced by sister companies, all monitored and operated by principals and staff of Z-USDS.
With a philosophy of leadership that teaches, “Be a product of what you represent”, every single staff and support member of the Z-USDS family are martial artists and train actively. By doing so, we never are “out of touch” with what is happening in our locations because we are students, too.
Each and every Z-USDS instructor is hand-picked and trained by the Board of Masters through the Z-UUMAP – Z-Ultimate University of Martial Arts Professionals – where they undergo rigorous training, background checks, CPR and First Aid certifications, along with the latest methods and techniques in pedagogy, the science of teaching. Upon becoming an instructor with Z-USDS, they continue to train each and every week under the tutelage of the Board of Masters, improving as martial artists, instructors and location operators.
By operating and coaching all entities and location under one umbrella and staffing them with highly trained martial artists that are also experts in their fields of business, Z-USDS ensures “Z-Ultimate” martial arts experience and a world class level of quality and service for all Z-USDS family members.
