  • Our Story

    UPD is a derivative of Ultimate Martial Arts (UMA).

    UMA has been teaching Karate and Kickboxing for over 20 years and now also BJJ.

    Founder, Vincent Busuttil, with his infectious love of martial arts has always felt he could serve the community better in keeping more people safe and free from harm with his vast knowledge base. Along with Stuart and Teresa (both long standing blackbelts) Vincent set about to revise and improve antiquated self defence moves.

    Society has changed and unfortunately attacks have increased due to alcohol, drugs, homelessness and other various reasons.

    The S.P.E.A.R (Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response) is just that!

    Tony Blauer, the founder of S.P.E.A.R, based in America, came to a realisation that there was a time delay in 'motor program' thinking. For example, 'What do I do if the punch came from here? Or if the kick came from there?' costing unnecessary time spent on over thinking which can be costly to your life! 

    It is that ambush attack that leaves people injured or knocked out. However the flinch response is a natural reaction in all of us; no martial arts training is required and believe it or not, strength is not a huge factor. 

    We continually trial and test new techniques and scenarios to help equip the greater community and most of all the children coming through school whom are now surrounded by so many more pressures with social media, YouTube and cyber bullying.

    Please let us help you and your loved ones be safe and fear less whilst going out and enjoying this wonder of life!
