I’m Running a Marathon To Fundraise, Here’s How You Can Help

April 20, 2011


Sponsor me in my mad marathon fundraiser!

Dear Friends, Family, Students & Supporters,

I am writing to ask for your help. You won’t believe what I have gone and gotten myself into this time. I am going to run the Wisconsin Marathon (26.2 miles) for my non-profit The Black Belt Society (Children’s charity & Martial Arts for Veterans). Read why here. My body is already in nervous shock from the anticipation of running.

Your help would be greatly appreciated. No, I don’t expect you to run along side of me – so you can breathe that sigh of relief! But a donation to the Black Belt Society in order to sponsor me in the run would be awesome!

If you can help, please make your check payable to The Black Belt Society and send it to the address below. Then you can sit back with your lemonade, while I am hobbling across Wisconsin! Thank you so much!

Practical Self Defense for Personal and Family Security
For those of us in the protective fields of law enforcement, security and self defense, these kinds of shows can be valuable.

95% of Dieters Rapidly Put Back On The Weight

April 13, 2011

K3 Kickboxing Photo w logohttp://www.usa-martialarts.com/fitness-kickboxing/
Research is very clear in revealing the big lies in dieting, weight loss and even surgical options. Put simply, it just doesn’t work. It’s hard on the heart, and most often will fail in the long run.

So how can you break the cycle? We have the answer.

The reason those programs fail is because the underlying psychological issues that caused the obesity to begin with still remain. As long as the mental component remains unresolved, then the body will revert back to the previous state or worse, get even fatter.

What is the weight loss and fit, healthy body answer?

Stop dieting.
Stop “working out”.
Fix the problem, not the blame.
Treat the cause, not the symptom.

Become healthy by building a healthy lifestyle, healthy psychology, healthy body, healthy spirit.

The martial arts has long been known for a WAY OF LIFE. It is not a sport that has a season or people who ride the bench. It is not a workout that grows boring over time. It is not exercise that resembles paying penance for eating sins.

Our Martial Arts and Kickboxing program is something you can do for a short time and take the lessons with you for life. We train men, women and children how to develop the mental discipline, a powerful positive mindset, emotional health and life skills to improve from the inside out.

No we are not therapists, psycologists or gym rats. No we are not the typical gym trainers or personal trainers who pose in front of mirrors and flaunt our bodies in front of you so you feel guilt and shame.

We are martial artists who happen to have the secret to long term fitness, health and a happy lifestyle. We’d like to share the centuries old secrets of martial arts wisdom and health with you.

It includes:

Healthy eating choices without deprivation of your favorite treats
Eating out and having fun while being sensible
Finding balance in activity and eating
The secret to stop exercising, working out and being fit
Discovering the joy of living an active, healthy life
Finding your inner-strength

Be happy, healthy, strong and fit. Discover the power of ancient martial arts and the fun of kickboxing at USA Martial Arts Phoenix.

The Best Kept Secret to Building Greater Self-Confidence and Self-Control

April 12, 2011


The Best Kept Secret to Building
Greater Self-Confidence and Self-Control

Give your child the gift of CONFIDENCE
“ I was skeptical when I heard that karate would teach my child discipline, confidence, and self esteem……
But, now – he’s a “Straight A Student,”
Confident, and, Respectful!”

Dear Phoenix Parent,

As a parent, you prepare your child for school the best you can every day. But what do you do about developing the confidence to ask and answer questions? What about the self-control it takes for your child to raise their hand in school? How about the discipline to focus, concentrate and learn at their maximum potential. Our USA Martial Arts Phoenix school will insure these traits will be developed at our Kids Karate and Children Taekwondo programs.

I have been working with children like yours for over 25 years, helping them develop character tools they can use for the rest of their life, such as self-confidence, discipline, respect, naming a few. The USA Martial Arts Phoenix School and its full-time professional staff are fully dedicated to this goal.

In our program your child will not only have fun, but also he or she will learn and build the confidence to be a great success at home, school and in Life! You don’t believe me? Read on and see what some parents have to say about our program.

The Karate for Kids program works hand-in-hand with a child’s schoolwork, providing improved self-discipline, self-confidence, mental alertness and goal setting skills. Watch as your child increases in confidence, energy and spirit. Stand and be dazzled as he becomes unstoppable in his quest for…

Greater academic achievement.
Unshakable self respect.
Increased strength and fitness, in both body and mind.

What we offer in our Karate for Kids program goes beyond kicking, blocking, and punching. It reaches into your child’s inner challenges that goes beyond “beating up the neighborhood bully” – instead it battles with your child’s inner self doubt as he develops.

Doubts like:
” I’m not good enough”
” Am I as good a Johnny?”
” I wish I was smarter than Sarah?”
” Why do they always pick on me?”
” Why doesn’t anybody like me?”

I am sure you have questioned yourself on how to help your child with these doubts. The good news is, I have a proven solution. A Program that has already worked for thousands of children- our Kids Karate program which will help your child learn easier than you think.

Remember, it’s not so much about your child learning the skills to fight others, but the ability to conquer himself by taming his innermost fears. Once your child learns these lifelong self-improvement tools we would have unleashed within him, a powerful, unstoppable force.
In other words, when your child uses the discipline of karate to conquer his fears, he has power to transfer that discipline to all other areas of his life. I know of no other sport that does this better than karate.

You may wonder how we can make a claim that karate is unlike any other sport in helping your child develop the important attributes we have been talking about. Fact of the matter is, that karate will increase your child’s strength, flexibility endurance, balance, and harmony, which in turn will leave him/her marveling at these changes.

In fact, these changes to his/her physical skills will act as a foundation for something much more important: the development of his/her value skills, mental and spiritual; not separate from her physical skills, but intimately connected – even bonded-to them.

The following are but three examples of what areas your child will grow in. These are just three of the powerful, energizing values your child will get from the “Kickin’ Kids” program. In short, you can look forward to your child developing:

Powerful Self Control: Your child will refuse to give in to negative peer pressure, and will develop a deeper respect for rules.
Improved Focus: Your child will learn what’s needed, along with the skill to “zero in” on critical tasks at hand. Normal, yet time-wasting, childhood distractions won’t get in his/her way.
Fearless Self Confidence: Watch as your child finds the courage to open any door life has to offer.
LITTLE TIGERS CHILDREN TAEKWONDO- Ages 4 to 6

In addition to our internationally recognized Phoenix Kids Karate program, we offer a program called the Little Tigers program and was developed specifically for preschool age children ages 4 through 6. Just like in the Kids Karate program, Little Tigers have their own unique patches and “Victory Stars.” Stars are earned in the same way as the Karate for Kids program, with slight modifications in recognition of the preschool age of the child. Four different colored.

There are many reasons for kids to become involved in the Martial Arts. We have developed programs based on traditional Martial Arts for kids. The Kids Karate Programs are based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills. The building blocks for our system are monthly themes such as:

Goals

Perseverance

Confidence

Self Awareness

Respect

Self-Esteem Friendship

Self-Control

Self-Improvement

Courtesy

Integrity

Dedication

In addition to monthly themes, our system includes the unique victory patch. Kids are rewarded special “victory stars.” These difference colored stars are rewarded for outstanding performance in karate class, school, home, or at a tournament competition. Kids may receive the following stars for the following deeds:

GOLD – Straight A’s, honor roll, or significant improvement
SILVER – Special performance awards
BLUE – Monthly themes, weekly lessons, classroom performance
RED – Tournament participation

Four different colored Victory Patches are available to accommodate all the stars that can be earned by high achieving Karate Kids:
Blue 0-24 Stars
Silver 25-49 Stars
Gold 50-99 Stars
Blue/Gold 100+ Stars
