How To Handle A Bully – Arizona Bullying Prevention Project

March 12, 2011


Dear Parents, Teachers and fellow Arizonan’s:

Hello, my name is John Nottingham, founder of The Arizona Bully Intervention Initiative – AZ Children’s Bully Prevention Project and author of Making Bully & Victim Proof Kids & owner of Nottingham Sword & Shield Security, ScottsdaleBodyguard.com and USA Martial Arts Phoenix – thank you for checking out my blog.

My mission in life is to help individuals like you cut through the BULL, myths and misinformation about self defense and personal safety, to ignite their individual power, increase fitness and joy in their personal and professional lives.

I believe I am uniquely qualified to help advise you in your journey because of being trained by some of the best of the best and my lifetime of unique work. Not to mention that I have BTDTGTT – Been There, Done That and Got The T-shirt!

For the past 25 years, I have personally helped thousands of men, women and children overcome challenges like bullying, obesity, insecurity, fear, hyperactivity, anger issues, lack of self confidence, slipping grades, and more.

Personally, I was the target and bullying as a child. But Martial Arts changed all that and my grades improved, I earned Black Belt, started teaching, competed nationally, achieved Eagle Scout and became a leader in my church youth group. As an adult, I attended college eventually joining the U.S. Army Airborne and teaching hand to hand combat in a Special Forces Unit. Afterwards, I followed my heart and opened my own martial arts school with big dreams and no money.

I started the Arizona Bullying Intervention Initiative – The AZ Bully Prevention Project to help bully proof and victim proof Arizona Children. My team and I provide resources and training to parents, teachers and children from our unique 5 step method of How To Handle a Bully Without Fighting.

This process has been refined over the last 25 years and has helped thousands of children deal with bullies in their school and lives. We use an empowerment model to encourage positive life, social and problem solving skills, tactical communication, anger management emphasizing peaceful resolutions to bullying.

“When victims stop being victims, bullies stop being bullies.” -Izzy Kalman, Bullies To Buddies founder

My method was developed by putting children’s safety first then school liability – NOT school liability first followed by child safety as with many other programs. It includes elements from Gavin de Becker (The Gift of Fear), Dr. Terrance Webster-Doyle (How to Defeat a Bully Without Fighting), Doc George Thompson (Verbal Judo) and my experience helping thousands of children successfully deal with bullying.

It is the first program of its kind to incorporate Bodyguard Security tactics with the ABC’s of conflict avoidance, anger management, and the wise Martial Arts philosophy PEACE process.

Furthermore, my program won’t leave a child a helpless victim if confronted with physical aggression. Our belief is that every child has a fundamental right for self defense and that they need to be equipped should the need for self defense arise. However, physical intervention skills are only employed as a last resort, and with our unique methods, those situations are less likely to get physically violent.

If you would like more information about bullying, bully prevention training, school assemblies, home school groups, presentations or our free community bully prevention workshops, please contact us at:

Phoenix Children Learn Life Skills Through Martial Arts

October 29, 2010

Awarded BEST OF PHOENIX 2010


Phoenix Children Learn Life Skills Through Martial Arts

How Phoenix and Scottsdale Children Are Getting The Edge In School and Life Through Martial Arts

A unique martial arts school in Phoenix Arizona is changing the way martial arts is taught and Phoenix parents are taking notice.

“We have a unique traditional heritage at USA Martial Arts that stems from a unique Korean Grand Master named Hwang Kee. He founded a system called Moo Duk Kwan or “Institute of Martial Virtue”. The emphasis on the system is to develop virtuous individuals and what Grand Master called “warrior scholars”. It is considered of paramount importance to develop the mind as well as the body so academics and character education are encouraged at USA Martial Arts. I believe that is why we get so much respect in the community and have so many scholarship recipients.”

Children’s Martial Arts at USA Martial Arts Phoenix

The children’s martial arts program at USA Martial Arts is perfect for your child! We have specially designed programs for children ages 5 and up. Children’s classes are separated by age and experience level in order to create an ideal learning environment for your child.

Positive Learning Environment

Our children’s classes are taught by caring professional martial arts instructors who are dedicated to making a positive difference in your child’s life through martial arts training. Each action packed class is filled with exciting drills and activities that will teach your child valuable life skills such as confidence, discipline, goal setting, and perseverance while learning martial arts.

Character First

We like to think of ourselves as a Personal Development Center that uses martial arts training to help our students achieve their full potential in life. Our goal is to use martial arts training to help our students develop essential life skills such as discipline, self-control, respect, integrity, perseverance, and goal setting skills in order to equip them for success in life.

Self Defense

The practical self-defense training that your child will receive is invaluable! Every child (and adult for that matter) should have the CONFIDENCE and KNOWLEDGE to defend themselves from verbal and physical assault. Self defense is a SKILL that anyone can learn with training and practice. While it is unlikely that a person will ever have to physically defend themselves, I would much rather be prepared than leave it up to chance. We spends thousands each year on various forms of insurance, shouldn’t we invest in our children’s safety?

Martial Arts

In addition practical self-defense training your child will also learn a unique blend of modern and traditional martial arts including artistic martial arts (forms and traditional skills) and sport martial arts (sparring and kickboxing skills). As your child progresses in their training their level of fitness will increase. In particular, most students see an increase in flexibility, strength, muscle tone, and cardiovascular fitness. Our curriculum is designed to challenge your child and encourage them to reach to new heights as they progress towards earning their Black Belt.

Frequently Asked Questions About USA Martial Arts Phoenix

October 24, 2010

Awarded BEST OF PHOENIX 2010


Frequently Asked Questions

I’m a beginner – are there special classes for me?
Yes indeed. As a beginning student, you’ll have your own special classes as part of our Discovery course. You’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of Taekwondo, while you also learn some of the basics of being a martial arts student. These are strictly “no-contact” classes – no-one is going to be punching or kicking you.

Am I allowed to watch my child in class?

Not just allowed, but positively encouraged. We have a viewing area set aside where you can sit and view your child’s class in comfort. Your positive involvement in your child’s study of Taekwondo is more important than you may realize. When you take an interest in Taekwondo class, you show your child that you truly value his or her efforts. By watching class, you give your child support, approval, and recognition for their achievements in karate – you give them the encouragement they need to thrive. So, while you’re not required to watch every minute of every class, please do stay and watch your child whenever possible.

How often should I attend classes?

If you’re one of our Taekwondo Tigers, (ages 4-7), please attend at least 1 class a week. If you’re a student in our Discovery courses, please attend class at least 2 times a week. You’re always welcome to come to class more often during the week if you are able.

Will I have to compete at Martial Arts Tournaments?

No, you’re not going to be required to compete at Martial Arts tournaments. Sport competition in karate simply isn’t a good fit for everyone, and you’re not going to be pushed into it. That said, if you are interested in competition, we do work together with other reputable local and regional schools to make quality tournaments available to our students. Sport competition in Taekwondo (or open martial arts) can be interesting, rewarding, and fun – while expanding and enriching your experience of the art. We have local, State, National and International champions and programs that can take students on a path toward their Olympic dreams.
