About USA Martial Arts Phoenix Arizona

USA Martial Arts Black Belt Universities Family Self Defense Leadership and Character Training Schools are owned by John Nottingham. His first full-time training center opened in Mesa Arizona in 1992. It had been his goal to build a martial arts school that offered not only an effective self defense program for children and adults, but also a comprehensive program of personal growth and development. It would be the emphasis on teaching the life skills of leadership, integrity, goal setting, self discipline and academic excellence, to name a few, that would cause the community to respond. An Eagle Scout, former Airborne Army Reservist, and bodyguard, he is living his dream with a chain of successful affiliate USA Martial Arts schools and a gifted staff.

His Phoenix/Scottsdale/Paradise Valley Arizona training center, the most state of the art martial arts school in the area with members of all ages, relocated to its present facility on Tatum and Greenway in 2010 to acquire additional space to accommodate the school’s continued growth. The beautiful facility ranks among the top martial arts schools in the nation with a large training room and classroom, Olympic style rubber flooring, spacious lobby, pro shop, martial arts store, quiet homework area for children, and a coffee and snack bar. USA Martial Arts training facilities are among the best in the country. They are as beautiful as they are functional.

John D. Nottingham
John Nottingham began his martial arts training under his first teacher in the mid 1980s. He has gone on to study in the US and Asia (China and Korea) under a virtual “Who’s Who” of martial Arts legends. John now holds the rank of 6th degree black belt in Taekwondo. He has also been awarded the title of Kwanjang (professor/Master) and was awarded Master of The Year and inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 2005. He holds multiple Black Belts and Instructorships. Under his tutelage, nearly 200 students have obtained the rank of black belt. John is also part of the US host Masters for the Korean Eagles Taekwondo Demo Team. John sits on the board of directors for the Break The Chain of Child Abuse Foundation and the Black Belt Society Warrior Scholars program which awards scholarships to graduating black belts. John is a respected local and national motivational and peak performance coach and speaker. John and his team are active in their community supporting the local school system and many charities.

Train the mind as well as the body?

September 29, 2010


“Train the mind as well as the body?”
(reprinted from American Health Magazine)

“Many parents are enrolling kids in martial-arts classes hoping they will learn discipline and self-defense and get a healthy workout. But a new study suggests Western methods for teaching martial arts may make kids more aggressive than savvy. Reason: Many courses ignore the ancient philosophy and just teach body moves.

At Texas A&M University, Dr. Michael Trulson divided 34 teens prone to delinquency (as determined by psychological tests) into three groups.

For six months, group A spent one hour, three times a week learning the ancient Korean martial art, Tae Kwon Do. Along with self-defense, it emphasizes setting goals in life, respect for others, honesty, humility, responsibility and honor. Group B spent the time learning a short-cut modern version of Tae Kwon Do (no philosophy), while Group C got no training at all.

Results: No change in Group C, but the kids in the two martial-arts groups responded in radically different ways. Those in Group A, who got the version emphasizing body and mind, got all the benefits: less anxiety, higher self-esteem, improved social skills, stronger values and, best of all, below-average levels of aggression. But kids in Group B (body only) got worse and their aggression shot way up.

Advice to parents: If you enroll kids in a martial-arts class, stick to tradition. Training the body without the mind may be a path to trouble.”

The ABC’s Of Personal Safety From A Security And Self Defense Specialist

September 23, 2010


The ABC’s of Personal Security and Self Defense
Conflict Resolution – Using Brains Over Brawn

Self defense is something everyone knows that we should learn, yet few actually do. Rather than use a few self defense or fighting tips as an emotional pacifier, it is important to test and apply what you think you know. It is through this process that self defense competence is built. With self defense competence comes personal protection and security confidence. A good self defense instructor will ad to your peace of mind and help you use your innate survival signals and skills to bring to bear in protecting yourself and/or the ones you love.
When you learn to defend yourself you are less likely to have to because:

1. You tend to avoid potentially dangerous situations because you recognize them earlier
2. You are more likely to trust your intuition/gut feelings therefore act on them
3. Project more confidence which often removes you from the victim profile. Criminals like easy targets, not difficult ones.

HERE ARE A FEW OF OUR ABC’s OF SELF PROTECTION PERSONAL SECURITY

Alert to Avoid Potentially Dangerous Situations
– Knowledge and Awareness of dangerous situations and how criminals operate
– Trusting instincts and Acting on intuition
– Always observe safe habits and practices

Breathe
– Belly Breath with Backpressure on exhale helps manage stress, adrenaline and fear
– Be looking for opportunities, weapons, barriers, escape routes and targets
– Be prepared with training and a plan but be flexible

Communicate with Confidence and Commit
– Say directly what you mean and mean what you say
– Change the Context of any situation you feel might lead to a violent encounter
– Commit to your plan and execute with intensity

Distance
Whenever you increase distance, you increase time and options and usually deny the targets

Eyes on targets and Escape options
Eyes, neck, groin, knees, Everything’s a weapon, Escape

In my view one of the most accomplished and respected martial arts Grandmasters alive today, Guru Dan Inosanto is a living legend.

Head Instructor at Grandmaster Ed Parkers school, training partner and good friend of Bruce Lee, when Guru Dan talks – I listen. Here he is sharing some insight into the grappling aspects of Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do (JKD) from a gentleman who has “been there, done that and wears the T-shirt”.

Discover how our Martial Arts Program will help you raise a safer, happier, healthier child all from learning to kick, block, and punch

September 21, 2010

WHAT’S THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE YOUR CHILD?…

CONFIDENCE!

A confident kid is UNSTOPPABLE!
Discover how our Martial Arts Program will help you raise a safer, happier, healthier child all from learning to kick, block, and punch

“I laughed when I heard that karate could help him in school…
Now he’s a Straight A Student”

It’s amazing, but true . . .
(learn the same lessons that I have – with this special FREE offer!)
And all of it comes from learning how to “kick, block and punch.” Still, you’re wondering if this will work for your child. I understand.

Dear Parent,

I don’t blame you. You’re probably wondering, how could one activity have such an impact on my child?
Well, it’s incredible, but true. The martial arts is not only a sport that can be enjoyed throughout a lifetime, but can also improve the quality of ones life! By teaching wholesome values and, success skills.

My name is John Nottingham, I’m the owner of one of the most successful martial arts schools in the Phoenix area.

For more than 20 years I’ve been nurturing children like yours with character building tools found only in martial-arts. No other sport can match them. I have consulted with over 10,000 Parents and many of them share the same concerns and priorities for their children.

Parents talk about the importance of positive influences, organized activity, developing discipline and confidence, goal-setting, and physical exercise. I’m happy to report that many parents also found that training at USA Martial Arts can accomplish all these objectives.

Your child’s Biggest Challenge comes from:

Their Fears and Self-Doubts. And it’s this limited way of thinking that is all around them that holds them back more than anything.

“I’m not as good as John.”
“I never get what the teacher is saying.”
“Other kids are getting all the breaks.”
“How come I can’t be as popular as Jane.”
“I’m not good at this, it’s just not for me.”
“How come that kid keeps picking on me?”

The list goes on and on. The question is: How can your child defend themselves against these attacks everyday?

When your child uses the power of martial-arts to conquer their fears, they have the power to transfer that to all other areas of life.

Martial-Arts lessons are the best way for your child to develop a continued feeling of confidence and achievement. When it is time for them to move up in rank we require they have your permission and the permission of their school teacher. That is just one of the ways we encourage good academic performance.
Watch as your child increases in confidence, energy, and spirit. You’ll be amazed as they become unstoppable in their quest for:

Greater Academic Accomplishments
Superb Attitude
Fitness
Unshakable Self Respect
Personal Achievement & Black Belt Excellence
All of this while having fun!

“Master Nottingham: Be sure to keep developing great leaders and minds for today’s world. You have no idea how influential you have been in not just my life, but many others. I honestly don’t know what type of person I would have become without martial arts forming a backbone for character.”
-Derek Roberts, Georgia Tech University Student

Your Child will develop the “I Can” “I Will” attitude that will, more than anything, set them a part and make them a leader!
It Does Not happen over night! Anything worth while requires dedication, persistence, and commitment. These character qualities can be learned by doing. I know you’re one of those very select parents who realizes that investing in your child now will pay you big dividends later.

Through our program your child will learn the fundamentals of LEADERSHIP:
Courage, Follow Through, Goal Setting, Communication Skills, Team Work, Self-Discipline, Self-Control, and the list goes on and on.

It doesn’t matter whether your child is out of shape or a star athlete. Martial-arts training will increase their flexibility, stamina and overall health. I have seen so many kids who were at first, over weight or felt physically inadequate transform their appearance and their confidence in themselves by becoming physically fit.

I have seen many star athletes gain the winning edge with the techniques they learn in martial-arts. Over the years I’ve also watched asthmatic children develop the ability to breathe easier (I was one of them. You can read my story in TKD Times Magazine here).

But don’t take my word for it………

“We, the Fox Family, want to thank EACH of you for making this one of the best experiences we have had – individually & together. At every class – from fellow lower belts to the many helpful upper belts that assist in class – we are met with such enthusiasm and encouragement!”
-April, Chris and Ashley Fox

“From my training throughout the last six years, I have gained so much that it is hard to explain with words.I’ve become stronger mentally and physically, continue to strive beyond my expectations, devise goal plans and structured schedules to achieve such goals, established myself as a person, as well as realized the friendships I have made through my martial arts family.”
-Lianne Russo, Arizona State University student

“I just finished reading the book Living the Martial Way. After reading the chapter on the Ideal Master, I realized that is exactly what we found in Sabumnim (Master Nottingham) and the wonderful instructors at USA Martial Arts. Chance couldn’t have brought us to a better school.”
– Mrs. Dawn Martin (The entire Martin family are members of the Leadership Program)

Our program can and WILL help your child increase their confidence, self- esteem and discipline, while teaching them life skills that will last them a lifetime and much more. (Let me explain why you MUST come see our program for yourself, it will be the best thing that you’ll ever do for your child.)

Imagine how you’ll feel when your child becomes unstoppable at achieving all of the positive things life has to offer and unstoppable at avoiding all of the negative things life has to throw our way.
In our martial arts program, your child will improve their confidence, increase their focus, and develop more self-control. We can say this with confidence because we have personally witnessed the positive effects our programs have provided for children just like your own.

Here a short explanation of how our programs teach these valuable life skills:

Confidence – By learning how to protect themselves, your children will develop confidence in their ability to handle life’s challenges. In turn, their improved confidence will give them the courage to say “no” to negative influences.

Focus – We will help your child increase their focus by giving them clear goals and showing them how to reach those goals through hard work and being consistent. (Of course, they won’t realize they’re learning focus because our classes are so much fun! But keep that to yourself – it’ll be our little secret…)

Self-control – Kids learn self-control in the martial arts by learning how important it is to have respect, both for themselves and for others. Martial arts training teaches that in order to get respect, you first have to give it. Once your child learns this important lesson, their self-control will naturally increase.

As you can see, our martial arts programs teach so much more than “just kicks and punches.” We help children develop life-skills that will take them far beyond the four walls of our martial art school – benefits that will last them a lifetime.

Positive Role Models Who Will Encourage Your Child to Succeed
Kids need strong role models who set a positive example for them to follow. Yet, everyone knows that kids can’t look up to professional athletes anymore – so where can they turn for positive examples to follow?

Our answer to this question is our professional staff of caring instructors. We honestly believe our martial art instructors are some of the best role models your child could have.

Experience has shown us that kids respond to our martial art teachers in way that no other coach or instructor can match. Because we realize how much our students look up to us, we work hard to set a positive example for them by living the martial arts principles of honesty, integrity, courage, kindness, and self-control.

As you know, children are hard-wired to seek attention and approval. So, when kids see positive behaviors demonstrated by our instructors, they are strongly driven to display those same behaviors in their own actions.

USA Martial Arts North Phoenix, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Paradise Valley Arizona

Karate is the Best Thing You Can Do For Your Child, Guaranteed!

To repeat, Martial Arts are less about your child learning to fight others, and more about fighting themselves. Their innermost fears. Conquer them, and your child unleashes within himself a powerful, unstoppable force.

A force that gives him the strength to kick down the doors of their own self doubts, A force that opens your child to the exalting power of values.

In other words, when your child uses the discipline of martial arts to conquer their fears, they have the power to transfer that discipline to all other areas of his life. I know of no other sport that does this better than karate. (I should know. Remember, I’ve been teaching it for 26 years.)

As you can see there are many great reasons to get involved in our program but the many benefits your child will develop, don’t start happening until you ACT!

Since many parents are not familiar with the benefits that USA Martial Arts PV provides, we would like to make a very special offer:

I’m going to allow you to check out USA Martial Arts Phoenix totally at NO Risk to you and at 100% my expense…

We are very proud to be owners of a USA Martial Arts Leadership Academy, recognized as one of the most successful Martial Arts Training Systems in America today. Why am I so proud? Again, it’s easy… Consistent, Positive Results!

As a resident of of Phoenix since 1992, it excites me beyond belief to be able to bring back to my community, the knowledge and experiences I have gained over the past 25 years of nurturing young people, like yours, worldwide – with character-building tools, as an entertainer, educator, author… and as a USA Martial Arts Black Belt. Let me say loud and proud, based on experience as a martial artist and as a teacher of over 10,000 in my career… there is no other sport that can have a lifelong impact on your child’s future like Taekwondo. Please accept my invitation, for you and your child, to experience all of this – FREE… with no strings attached!

All kids develop differently. All kids mature differently. All kids learn academics differently… however, all kids want to grow up and become “something special”! I have never met a child who wanted to grow up to become a failure! That is the focus of our program curriculum. Developing the skills it requires for focus, increased self confidence, discipline and respect. Respect of him/her self, of other karate students, teachers and adults! And we wrap these “success tools” around kicking, punching, and blocking… all the things kids naturally love to do! They simply do not read about how to be successful in a book… they live and experience it!

As parents, let’s be honest with one another… you and I both understand that protecting ourselves in today’s world is important. But have you ever thought about the fear and self-doubt that lives in your children? Fears and self-doubt that can potentially stop them from becoming that “Someone Special” they desire to become!

Fears and self-doubt such as:

“I am not as smart as Jenny”
“Why does everyone else in the class get this but me?”
“I hate playing sports… I am always the last one picked”
“I am not as big as he or as pretty as she is”

Perhaps you have heard your child say one or more of these “failure statements”; however, chances are you will recognize them before you hear them. Why… because it is difficult for children to admit these things… much less overcome them.

Let me reassure you, I have a solution… a proven program! Proven, over and over again, with all types of children. These children have developed “take charge” focus and unstoppable determination. They have learned how to become future “Special Someone’s”! At USA Martial Arts like to refer to them as LEADERS!
