Meet Our Professional Staff of Martial Arts Karate Self Defense Instructors
Sensei Brent Murakami
Sensei Brent started studying martial arts with the United Studios of Self Defense at the tender age of seven and has continued his training for over 20 years. He presently holds the rank of 5th degree Black Belt in Shaolin Kenpo. He is uniquely skilled in several areas of the martial arts including Shaloin Kung Fu, Muai Thai kickboxing, American boxing, judo, wrestling and Brazilian jiu Jitsu. He has also specialized in both Japanese and Chinese weaponry; weapons range from spears, swords, nun chucks, bo staff and the three sectional staff among others.
Sensei Brent graduated with a BS from the University of Southern California’s USC Marshall School of Business. After working for a few years in the business industry, he again returned to his major passion; namely, the martial arts. He has now shared this love of teaching for the past ten years. His enthusiasm for the art can be seen in each and every class he teaches; he teaches full-time, six days a week and welcomes students of all ages.
Sensei Tomas Orozco
Sensei Tomas first developed an interest and passion in the martial arts as a child while watching movies where the stars would display their incredible talents across the silver screen. Later when he witnessed a martial arts tournament held by the USSD, he was hooked. He soon got involved with the instructors academy and further developed his love for learning, teaching and performing the wonderful art of Shaolin Kempo.
Sensei Eduardo Vital
Ever since Mr. Vital was a child, he has had an interest in the martial arts. This interest was catapulted when he started training with the United Studios. Now, as an instructor, he says, “I enjoy the atmosphere in our studio; the students learn something new every day, as I learn something new from the students every day.”
