The Late Bloomer with Humor

Stefanie Alberts is the founder of USSD Bridge2breakthru; 2 life-changing martial arts learning centers in San Diego. Whereas other studios concentrate exclusively on belt rankings, Stefanie views martial arts as a culture; allowing students to break through their own limitations through positive reinforcement and a lot of humor.

Eschewing the rhetoric that she was too old, Stefanie started training in martial arts at the age of 31 after giving birth to triplets a year prior! She then went on to earn her black belt, placed in 3 National Championship after 40 yrs old to prove her message that “you define you.” Whether Stef is working with women over 50, young girls, or your “hard to break though” teenagers, this philosophy remains a hallmark of her business.

Stefanie believes in creating a positive and powerful life experience while teaching respect and restraint. With students as young as 3 and as senior at 85; newbies, visitors, adults, parents, and siblings, are welcomed with warmth.  United Studios of Self Defense in 4s Ranch and Scripps Ranch are one of the few dojos where physically and intellectually challenge students thrive.
