The UCC's Leadership and Cadet Discipline Program

    This program was formulated in the year of 1984 by Sensei  Robert Dickerson who has been a member of drill teams since 1964, in Darby & Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.   The Universal Pasha Karate Demonstration Team and the UPK Pasha Generals are the examples and results of our Leadership and Cadet Discipline Program.

The UPK Pasha Generals founded and created by Sensei Robert H. Dickerson, a 9th Degree Grand Master Black Belt in the Martial Arts.  The Generals are directed by his sons Jamal and Nasir Dickerson who are also Masters in the Martial Arts.  The UPK Pasha Generals specializes in close order discipline military-style drilling.

                 The members of the UPK Pasha Generals Drill Team are some of the elite members of the Universal Pasha Karate School and the UCC Leadership & Cadet Discipline Program.   This is a Rites of Passage Program developing (Boys to Men & Girls to Women) using the dynamics of the Martial Arts and Military Style Boot Camp Techniques and Training.   A very important part of our program curriculum is ethics (morals) and teaching etiquette (manners) while stressing to the young people at-risk to do the right things in life.   This course will help you develop the self-discipline that you will need to be successful in a world of competition.  It helps you develop the discipline that you will need to achieve academic accomplishments and excellence.    We conduct workshops, seminars, training sessions, and demonstrations on developing leadership and self-discipline. This program is different from most cadet programs since it teaches the value of morality and stresses the importance of cultural, historical and social awareness for inner-city youth or at risk youth. This program without any doubt, has proven its successful way in developing inner-city youth, when many programs have failed in rehabilitating youth.

    The UPK Pasha Generals specializes in close order discipline military-style drilling.   Their purpose is to serve as a model of what young people can achieve if they understand the principles of love and discipline.   They represent the character, morals, and values of manhood sought by many people and especially the women in this country.  One of the most unique qualities about the UPK Pasha Generals is that they are all world Karate champions.   The UPK Pasha Generals are multi-talented in the performing arts.   They are instrumental, jazz musicians and the drummers of the Universal African Dance & Drum Ensemble.    The UPK Pasha Generals have been seen by millions, on cable, local and national television.

    The members of the UPK Pasha Generals are all advanced Karate practitioners, from the Universal Pasha Karate School, in Camden, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.   They are helping thousands of youth by teaching leadership development and Martial Arts.  They have suffered the same problems that most inner-city youth are faced with daily.   However, they have grown into honor roll students, college students, college graduates, school teachers, entrepreneurs, advanced-level musicians, Karate World Champions, and positive role-models for their peers.  We are raising these young men to be KINGS, disciplined, protectors, positive, righteous and lovable fathers, to make better families for our children and communities.

     What distinguish the UPK Pasha Generals from all drill teams, is that they are all Karate practitioners that instituted the Karate Board Breaking using Karate punches, strikes and kicks with each board having a major social ill that effects our communities stenciled on the board to be broken.  This breaking ceremony was created by Grandmaster Robert H. Dickerson in 1984, which resulted in them to being seen by millions, on cable, local and national television.

   With the dedicated help of Mr. Dickerson oldest son Jamal P. Dickerson, who is also the UPK Pasha General's Supreme Captain and Head Drill Instructor (DI),  they have received the title of the 1993 Worlds Best Disciplined Drill Team in Baltimore, Maryland.   In 1994 they received the Worlds Best Overall Drill Team in Chicago, Illinois at the I.B.P.O. Elks of the World Drill-A-Rama Championships.

    Today, the UPK Pasha Generals travels extensively conducting workshops, seminars and demonstrations on developing self-discipline.   They participate on local, national, and cable television and radio talk shows.  They provide a creative forum for people to understand the principles of love and discipline.   The UPK Pasha Generals travel to schools, college, universities, community organizations, and religious institutions.   The UPK Pasha Generals have received overwhelming acclaim from celebrities, politicians, educators and people of many cultures.

(The greatest show on EARTH of Unity, Oneness and Discipline in ACTION)
