Children Learn Leadership and How To Handle Bullying With Taekwondo in Phoenix

December 19, 2011


Do Your Kids Kick and Punch Like Karate Kids Around The House?

Perhaps you have seen the positive press and exposure Taekwondo and Kids Martial Arts programs have been receiving. Maybe your son or daughter has expressed interest in doing a martial art. You don’t have to be Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee to do martial arts. In fact, you might be surprised at what you find for children at one Phoenix Martial Arts school.

Lots of children want to train in Tae Kwon-do because:

o They are being bullied
o They have low self-esteem/confidence
o They have no confidence
o They are lacking in co-ordination/motor skills
o They find it hard to make friends

Our Phoenix Karate Kids children’s program will teach your child core values such as discipline and respect. By starting at an early age, they will develop positive habits to last a lifetime. We believe in bringing out the best in your child and have designed our classes to be entertaining and informative.

With training in USA Martial Arts Phoenix Karate Kids Tae Kwon-do, the content of the classes and the way they are structured, your children will develop:-

o Self confidence, self control, self esteem and self discipline
o Respect for adults and for each other
o The value of setting goals and working towards them
o Non-violent techniques in conflict-resolution
o How to overcome a bully or gang situation
o The Tae Kwon-do training will channel their energy into their Tae Kwon-do skills
The way the instruction is given and broken down for the child, you will see a great improvement in a matter of weeks.
The training in Tae Kwon-do promotes individual and group activities which will develop,

(1) Communication skills, leadership life skills,

(2) Group interactions/activities.

Children who acquire self-confidence at an early age are far more likely to succeed in their adult ambitions. Martial Arts training is arguably the best method of instilling confidence into children and at the same time emphasises the importance of respect and discipline. As a result of the fast and exciting nature of Martial Arts there are thousands of children participating throughout Arizona, the USA; and worldwide there are millions.

Children see Martial Arts training as the ultimate activity, in our classes everybody wins, it’s not just who’s the best gets to play.

Our system of training is based on inner development and self-expression; concentration, focus, goal setting, self-achievement are the topics of discussion. Motor skill development, co-ordination, flexibility and self-awareness are the basics to the physical training.

Children learn to reach their full potential through our confidence building martial arts program. Caring Instructors provide expert training in a fun and safe, although still disciplined environment, to produce positive results.

FREE BULLYING PREVENTION SEMINAR TO THE PHOENIX AZ COMMUNITY AT USA MARTIAL ARTS

Cost: Free – Fully Sponsored by USA Martial Arts Phoenix & Nottingham Sword & Shield Security Bodyguards

Phoenix, AZ – Master John Nottingham’s USA Martial Arts in Phoenix has announced plans for a community Bullying Prevention Seminar scheduled for 6:00 PM, each Wednesday, December 2011.

The seminars are part of USA Martial Arts Bullying Prevention initiative international to help educate our communities in preventing Bullying Behavior. With over 26 years of experience in successfully helping men, women and children deal with bullying, USA Martial Arts Phoenix is flexing its muscle against Bullying by teaching free Bullying Prevention seminars in local schools, companies and organizations.

As part of our campaign to prevent bullying, USA Martial Arts Phoenix has partnered with an international group who is largely recognized as the authority on Bullying Prevention, the Bullying Prevention International Initiative and the Phoenix Bullying Prevention Program “Bully Proof Vest”.

According to local USA Martial Arts Phoenix owner and instructor Master John Nottingham, education is the key to Bullying Prevention.

“Research indicates that 1 in 4 children are affected by bullying and the impact can be far reaching. Consequences of bullying include anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, physical ailments, absenteeism and poor academic achievement. Through age-appropriate instruction, direct training and open houses such as this one, collectively martial arts schools around the globe aim to have a positive impact on reducing bullying and victimization”, says bodyguard trainer Nottingham.

Nottingham was once the target of bullying himself until he discovered the self-defense lessons of martial arts. Later he incorporated bodyguard strategies used to protect VIPs and other dignitaries. His first client was himself and has since been teaching and developing his methods for over 20 years.

“This program is the only program we are aware of that is designed by professional protectors and has practical elements that keep children safe. It’s practical, and easy to learn through our step by step method. At the core of the program is learning how to recognize, avoid, de-escalate and deter bullying before it begins. We emphasize empathy, social intelligence, good decisions and habits and making friends if possible. However, when push comes to shove, we can show how to effectively protect yourself effectively without going overboard and doing something excessive.”

Attendance at the Bullying Prevention Seminar is limited. To register contact USA Martial Arts Phoenix at (602) 896-8721 or info@usa-martialarts.com.
