USSD: Our History

Our History:

Our studio first opened its doors in 4s Ranch in 2008 – the same location where it exists today. One year later, Scripps Ranch welcomed its first students.

We operated under the brand name USSD Team Focus until 2017 when we changed our name to Bride2Breakthru. Why? Because we felt that it did not get to the heart of our mission: getting students to ‘breakthru’ their own limitations through the art of karate.

We continue to be a proud and active franchise owner participant of the USSD: United Studios of Self-Defense.

“My grandson has been part of USSD for nearly a year. I see marked improvement in his focus skills in class and in other settings. His Sensei is excellent!”
