Choosing A Martial Arts School For Children in Phoenix Arizona

May 31, 2011

Choosing A School

Taekwondo for Children - Karate for Kids

” The children’s program at USA Martial Arts Phoenix is outstanding and provides an environment for children to develop as individuals and leaders with strong character and values.”

– Michael W., Phoenix AZ

Things to consider when choosing a Martial Arts School

A martial arts school is a unique thing within our community – more than a place for fitness and social activity, it is a place designed to promote personal growth and to enhance character development. When looking for the right martial arts school for yourself or your child, we believe you consider the following factors:

Traditional System Foundation
Look for a school that teaches has one traditional or classical art as their foundation- karate, judo, aikido, taekwondo, kung-fu, etc., not several. An old martial arts proverb says that the hunter who shoots at two rabbits misses both. As a beginner, you want to focus on one thing and learn it well, perhaps before moving on to another art. It is unwise and ill advised to be a, “Jack of all trades and Master of none.” Also be leery of schools that claim to teach their “own style”. Every legitimate school from Karate, Taekwondo, or Kung Fu creates a unique curriculum but it should be based on proven methods and decades of experience. Think of it much as you would a university.

Martial Arts Style
Style srefers to a way of teaching a specific art – not to a differentiation between arts. Karate, taekwondo, and kung-fu are different martial arts, not different styles. In the same way, the Japanese/Okinawan arts of judo, jujitsu, aikido, sumo, kendo, iado, yudo, etc. are different martial arts, not different styles of karate (although this has become a common way of describing it to the uninformed). The major styles of karate are Shotokan, Shorin Ryu, Goju Ryu, Shito Ryu, Wado Ryu, Isshin Ryu, and Uechi Ryu. The major traditional styles of Taekwondo are Moo Duk Kwan (Tang Soo Do), Chung Do Kwan, Song Moo Kwan, Ji Do Kwan. Today Taekwondo is commonly referred to by its political affiliations namely, WTF (Olympic or World Taekwondo), ITF, and ATA. Wushu is the generalized inclusive modern name for Chinese Martial Arts (commonly referred to as Kung Fu). Some common Kung Fu (Wushu) styles are Hsing-I, Wing Chun, Hungar, 5 Animal, and Shoalin Kempo- but there are hundreds.

Martial Arts Rank System
Most martial arts today utilize a ranking system for its practitioners. In the Japanese martial arts (karate, judo, etc.) the ranking system usually consists of black belt and a variety of colored belts leading up to black belt. These pre-black belt ranks usually start with white belt and end, just below black belt, with brown belt. The ranks in between are signified by several other colors that may vary from school to school. Our pre-black belt (or class/grade) ranks are as follows: Gold, Orange, Green, Purple, Blue, Brown, and Red. Black Belt ranks range from 1st degree through 10th degree black belt. Various titles are assigned according to leadership responsibility, much like Military Rank. Tenth level Black Belt is generally reserved for the founder of the system, the one person at the top of an organization of an art, or a life long practitioner of the art. Legitimate systems usually require a minimum age of 35 with 25 plus years of intense practice for the rank of “Master”. There are only a handful of true 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th Degree Black Belts in each martial art through out the entire world. And all known legitimate martial artists at this level are above 50 years of age.

Martial Arts National or International Organizations
Does the school belong to a recognized national or international organization? Most good schools are part of such organizations. This is one indication but not necessarily a guarantee.

Instructor Credentials in Martial Arts
All legitimate martial arts instructors have credentials to verify their rank and/or any titles they hold (Master, Grandmaster, etc). Some questions you might ask include: Where did they get their rank? Did they promote themselves? Or were they promoted by people within their own organization who are beneath them in rank? A person can’t give himself a BA, MA, or Ph.D degree, nor can they be promoted to such a degree by someone who only holds a BA degree themselves. In the same way, a person can’t promote themselves to any degree of black belt. And they can’t be promoted by people who aren’t qualified to make such a promotion. Unfortunately, self-promotion and promotion by an unqualified “board” are very common within the martial arts. To be considered legitimate, a person must be promoted through their black belt ranks by someone who is at least two black belt levels above them (In our system, only a Master can promote an individual in any rank). Ask if the instructor belongs to the same organization that issued their rank? (They should. Many move upwards in rank by switching from organization to organization.) Do their credentials seem to make sense? Ones that may not are a 25-year-old instructor claiming a high black belt rank (above 4th degree) or rank in several different arts. Does the instructor have any teaching certification beyond their rank certification? A black belt doesn’t suddenly make someone qualified to teach. They must complete an additional program to learn this skill.

Instructor Personality for Teaching Martial Arts
You should take special notice of the instructor as he teaches. The instructor may not be the person who greets you or even who gives you your first lesson or two – often called introductory classes. You want to make sure the personality of the instructor suits you and/or your children.

Sport vs. Self Defense Martial Arts
Do they offer, recommend, or require competition? To be useful, students must be paired up for dual practice. Do they utilize adequate safety gear for these sessions? How much control is utilized? We do not, but some schools require full or semi-full contact during paired sessions, which we consider dangerous, especially to children.

Martial Arts Weapons
If you are interested in weapons training, be sure to ask if the school teaches them. Not all schools do. The traditional Japanese/Okinawan weapons are not actually designed as weapons. They were originally farm and fishing tools used by Japanese and Okinawan people in their daily jobs. And, since real weapons were banned, they were forced to use these tools when attacked by those with real weapons. Other Martial Arts weapons have a history all their own including military traditions. At USA Martial Arts Phoenix, we offer training in these ancient and contemporary practical weapons to those in a Black Belt training program. Mastery of each of these requires different physical and mental skills. As such, they round a student out, provide great motivation for practice and develop unique attributes and extraordinary control and timing. Some require greater concentration, others greater strength, etc, making them a great training tool for children, who become quickly bored.

Watch or participate in a class
Can you watch a class before you or your children join? Many schools discourage observation. We encourage it. We also offer an introductory class for a nominal fee to allow potential students to get a feel for our school before committing to a program.

Program length
It takes time to acquire skill at self defense and develop the life changing qualities a good martial arts school seeks to instill in its students – making them healthier, happier, and more accomplished. (These qualities include self control, self discipline, self confidence, and self esteem.) Something acquired quickly is usually forgotten just as quickly. As a result, most schools require a year commitment. However, there may be other options.

Inquire at the school.
Final Thoughts Keep your eyes open and don’t be afraid to ask questions. It takes hard work, dedication, time, and willingness to grow to achieve a black belt in any art or system. And it takes the right instructor, art or style, setting, and the support of ones fellow students to reach that point. In some schools, students have a (negative) competitive attitude towards each other, especially newcomers. Avoid these. Some schools also spend most of their time entertaining students, playing games, or teaching bogus techniques that don’t work in real situations. You want a school that will help you or your child reach their goals in life, not hamper them.

Make sure you feel comfortable with the school (including the instructors and fellow students) before taking the first step and making that commitment.

A Black Belt in Karate can help your Child’s admission to a top College

USA Martial Arts students are currently attending, or have attended, some of the most prestigious universities and high schools in the world. Admissions decision-makers at top universities and high schools are swamped with highly qualified applicants. All have top grades and high SATs. How do they decide who they will allow entrance? Well, they look for other accomplishments that set some applicants apart from most of the others. A black belt in Martial Arts, especially from a world-renowned school like USA Martial Arts (Phoenix respected and most award-winning martial arts school), makes an applicant unique. It offers independent proof that the applicant is an extraordinary person – someone who has achieved what few within our society can claim – a black belt in traditional legendary martial arts.

The Secret To Happier, Healthier More Confident Kids…

May 31, 2011

•••Attention Parents•••

Can you find your child in this checklist?

“If So, Read On…You Might Just Find
the Big Breakthrough You’ve Been
Seeking for Your Child!”

___ Rita, age 11, used to be confident…ready to take on the world. But after starting middle school, she seems like a different person: hesitant and unsure of herself.
The peace of the household is frequently disturbed. Everything is a battle: getting ready for school; dinnertime; homework; even things that used to be enjoyable family activities are now potential battles. Screaming matches occur on a regular basis.

___ Paula is so concerned about being popular. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, worry that this will make her an easy target for negative peer pressure.

___ Simon used to enjoy playing outside, but has now settled into a couch potato lifestyle. He is putting on weight and seems to be increasingly hooked on junk food.

___ Martin, bright, smart, and formerly very interested in doing well, has succumbed to the mentality that, somehow, it’s not “cool” to try hard with his school work.

___ Mr. and Mrs. Grant are frustrated at the level of disrespect demonstrated by their children. The kids never used to talk like this before! The Halls think, “If I had talked like that when I was a kid — I would have gotten clobbered!”

___ It seems that Harper always gravitates toward the “bad crowd.” He is attracted to kids that don’t do well in school and are constantly in trouble.

___ Grace is concerned about her son, Alex. Since the divorce, he doesn’t have a positive male role model. Alex is often sullen and difficult to get along with.
If you’ve “found” your son or daughter on the checklist above
(and most people do)… Read on…

Note: We get reports like these, literally every day, from parents
whose kids train at “USA Martial Arts Phoenix.”

Gabriella’s confidence has grown tremendously since earning her Green Belt. Mrs. Johnson, her teacher, has just called to say that Jenny can now stand up in front of the class in school and confidently speak. Mom and Dad are shocked and surprised.

Not only has Jacob gotten into great physical shape…his athletic skill has improved enormously. Jacob seems to have a newfound love of being outdoors, playing, and running.

Cory, formerly terrified of moving outside his comfort zone, now eagerly takes on new challenges. As his confidence grows, he moves on to the next challenge with excitement. His parents, Laura and Eddie, credit the high energy, positive environment of “USA Martial Arts Phoenix.”

Michael has become more cheerful and helpful around the house. He enjoys family activities…just like he used to when he was younger. His mother, Barbara, reports that he is now a joy to be around.

Mom was delighted when, after the neighborhood BBQ, Mrs. Swift from down the block said, “Your son Joshua is such a well mannered young boy!”

Carol said, “Mom, the kids were saying mean things to me at school today.” Mom thinks, “Oh no, here we go again.” — and says, “Well, how did you handle it?” Mom breathes a sigh of relief when Carol says, “It’s no big deal. Their words can’t hurt me. I learned that in Martial Arts class!”

Timmy, formerly quite a slob, now seems to be taking pride in his appearance. Without being asked, somehow his hair is combed, his shirt is clean, his teeth are brushed. And, not always, but at least occasionally, his bedroom seems to be picked up and clean! Just as Timmy is proud of his Karate accomplishments, he also seems to take pride in other aspects of his life!

Introducing the USA Martial Arts Phoenix Ten Point Success System

1. Positive Role Models: The biggest asset of “USA Martial Arts Phoenix?” Easy. The teachers. Now, I’ll tell you up front. They are not like the teachers you’ve seen in the Martial Art movies. Are they “tough guys?” Yes. But what you will notice (and so will your child)…is that they are “Nice Guys.” They have been hand selected…not just because they are great Martial Artists. They have been chosen because they are wonderful people…and have a great love of helping others benefit from the Martial Arts! All of our teachers were once students at “USA Martial Arts Phoenix” themselves. They care about each student individually — and are totally committed to helping your child reach his or her potential.

2. Physical Fitness: It’s hard to feel good about yourself when you are out of shape physically…or when your athletic skills have not been fully developed. Our belief is that, regardless of how athletic somebody seems to be…there is an athlete inside all of us. When a student feels their physical skills skyrocket…it’s not long before their self-image follows suit!

3. A High Energy, Exciting Environment: Many kids have grown accustomed to virtual activities (video games, television, internet). Participating in an exciting, high energy environment, focused on an actual activity, will give your child a very real sense of achievement!

4. Regular Incentives for Effort and Achievement: The belt system of Martial Arts (your child will earn a new belt every three months: white, yellow, gold, orange, green, etc.), regular positive feedback and recognition of accomplishment, incentives for improvement, applause, smiles, and high-fives will systematically lead your child into the “Yes, I Can!” attitude you’ve always wanted for him or her.

5. The “Life Lesson of the Week”: Regular exposure, through our “Life Skills Lessons from Martial Arts Masters,” to systematic instruction, accompanied by exercises in the lessons of respect, discipline, focus, persistence, courage, discipline and confidence. (Most of the “USA Martial Arts Phoenix” parents name this as their favorite part of the program!)

6. A Proven System of Skill and Personal Development: No fancy theories or hard to understand concepts here. Our teachers are experts in teaching the actual SKILLS of listening and focus. Hint: We’ll be teaching these to your child in the very first week!

7. A Series of Positively Constructed Challenges that will build your child’s confidence. You will be delighted as you see your children confidently move outside their comfort zone. As the weeks go by, you will smile with pride as your son or daughter moves from challenge to challenge…their confidence soaring at each new accomplishment!

8. An Atmosphere of Respect: You watch with satisfaction as your children learn to give respect and to earn respect. Most importantly, they learn the essential lessons of Self-Respect!

9. Order and Structure: Even though the atmosphere is friendly and supportive, Karate is not “play time.” You will be delighted to see how your children develop focus and persistence in our orderly, structured environment.

10. A Friendship Based Environment: If you are expecting the old, harsh, authoritarian, military style Martial Art training…you are going to be sadly disappointed. When you visit us, you will find a friendly, supportive environment.

Some of the teachers and long time students have been friends for nearly 20 years. That atmosphere of friendship, support, and respect will give your
child the support he or she needs to succeed!

AZ Neighbor California is Releasing up to 45,000 Prisoners. Self Defense Teacher Helps Phoenix Gain Peace of Mind with Self Defense

May 25, 2011


Arizona’s neighbor California is releasing 30,000 to 45,000 prisoners due to overcrowding. That leaves many Arizonan’s asking “How many of those criminals will flee to Arizona and the Phoenix area?” Security Specialist and veteran self defense trainer John Nottingham says, “If you are concerned with personal safety then this program will help you gain peace of mind. It makes a great gift to those you love and provides unconventional tools for self defense and personal protection.”

Women’s Self Defense | Street Self Defense | Reality Based Self Defense | Krav Maga | Jeet Kune Do | How To Protect Yourself | How To Do Self Defense Fast | Bodyguard Self Defense Security

Before you think Nottingham is just a local self defense instructor, take a closer look. John Nottingham, or “Master Nottingham” as his students call him, has taught military, law enforcement and over 10,000 students in his career. He is not only a multiple Black Belt holder with a 6th Degree Master Black Belt, but is a bodyguard trainer and owner of a security and executive protection company. He served in a Special Forces Reserve Unit and was asked to teach Hand to Hand Combat to Airborne Rangers, US Army Green Berets and other elite forces as part of a limited experimental unit program in the early 90s. Nottingham has also trained and taken students to national and international events in Korea and China.

Women’s Self Defense Phoenix | Arizona Personal Protection | Self Defense Seminar Arizona | Phoenix Self Defense | Cave Creek | Scottsdale Self Defense | Self Defense Seminar Phoenix |

“Much of our self defense advice flies in the face of conventional training and teaching. We use an empowerment and educational model that makes the training different than most places. We’re certainly different than law enforcement in our advice. We train them- we should know.”

What Strategic Self Defense & Personal Protection is NOT:

o Krav Maga, Jeet Kune Do
o Corner Dojo Karate or Taekwondo
o Highly stylized or retrofit techniques
o Complex moves & martial arts techniques
o Easy to forget techniques requiring tons of time to practice
o Rehashed old info you already know
o Typical self defense advice like “be aware”
o A politically motivated “women’s empowerment” or “man hater” course disguised as self defense
o Guys with big egos scaring people into fighting
o Misguided sport fighting such as Muay Thai Kickboxing or Brazilian Jiu-jitsu

What SecuritySafe | StreetWise is:

o Simple, but little known, techniques to end a physical attack instantly
o Tactics, techniques you already know and can instantly use (We’ll show you know where & when to use them.)
o Bodyguard tactics to avoid, prevent, thwart, deter would-be attacks
o Advanced Threat Assessment tactics to recognize and derail dangerous situations
o Military grade physical intervention techniques and the appropriate use of violence
o Mental, physical and emotional tools to use under stress of an actual criminal attack
o Clever tricks to see attacks coming before you lose the advantage
o Criminal mindset and typical tricks, tools and trouble spots
o Professional, respectful treatment with measurable results
o When most trainers tell you to “fight” we’ll teach you to evacuate
o When most courses will tell you to prepare to fight, we’ll show you how to end it
o Designed so that almost anyone can do it – even if out of shape

“Most self defense instruction available to the public is well intentioned but we would argue often, misguided, unfounded, dangerous or just silly. The premise of our training is to use proven tactics for protection to give our clients peace of mind. We’ll show you techniques used to protect the President that can work to protect you and your family. Training gives options and reduces stress that not having training denies.” – John Nottingham

Nottingham must be doing something right considering that his programs have been used by agencies and individuals all over the world. His concepts and training programs have spun off numerous imitators and other trainers. If imitation is the greatest form of flattery, Nottingham should feel proud.

“This course is an introduction with sound principles for protection (self defense). You won’t earn a Black Belt in a seminar or learn to fight like Jet Li or for the UFC, however you can instantly apply some of these [self defense] strategies to improve the level of safety and security in which you live your daily life. Clients tell me that is worth it’s weight in gold.”, says Nottingham.


PART I
The first part of the course is taught in a casual and relaxing classroom setting complete with a multi-media presentation, statistics, insight into the criminal mind and bodyguard tactics. It even includes crime footage of actual assaults and a discussion and analysis of options.

PART II
The second part is hands on, step by step instruction without the ego or drill Sergeant attitude. Male and female instructors help clients learn simple effective they can instantly use the moment they walk out the door. Since these are moves they already know, they don’t have to worry about remembering them under duress, when it most counts.
