For Immediate Release
Contact Mark Mayes at 602-896-8721

Phoenix Bodyguard & Martial Arts Schools teach “Braining” over “Brawling” for Self Defense.

“Brain power is the key to neutralizing threats in this day and age.” Says head instructor John Nottingham of USA Martial Arts in Phoenix.
Especially when someone can actually be sued just for defending him or herself…”Security Wise / Street Wise personal protection” is proven to be the better alternative.
“This is the kind of protection training that security and law enforcement are moving toward…but it’s especially user-friendly to the average person who doesn’t have any kind of self-defense background.” Says Nottingham. Security Wise/Street Wise Personal Protection can be learned within a very short amount of time.
Nottingham should know because he owns a Security Company and trains bodyguards, law enforcement and military.
These classes will be held at USA Martial Arts Phoenix this Friday evening from 5p-9p, and Saturday afternoon from 12n-4p. Please call Mark Mayes for more information. Telephone: (602)896-8721.

This enables VIPER trained individuals to stay one step ahead. VIPER teaches to attack threat and seize the initiative to dictate the outcome. It deals with neutralizing violence by any means necessary and only one of those modalities may be the use of physical force.

Personal
VIPER is made so that anyone can use his or her individual abilities and situation to adapt and win. Additionally it is designed for those who are out of shape and my have other limitations. You will develop your own safety plan and arsenal of skills centered on your individual needs and experiences.

Evolutionary
VIPER teaches concepts so that student’s techniques improve over time and evolve into the response that works best for them. Additionally the concepts are like planted seeds that grow in time in students. The strategy used by VIPER evolves and adapts to fit virtually every situation that could arise.

Responses
VIPER students learn how to solve problems proactively and/or counter offensively, not simply react to them. It is a response to potential violence and the threat of being a potential target. VIPER graduates seize control and take the conflict to their arena where they can dominate and win. VIPER is designed for and used when responding to hostile situations and a high level threat.

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:

Attention Phoenix Parents…You’re About To Discover The Untold Secrets To Developing A More Focused, Confident, Self-Disciplined and Fit Child.”

February 23, 2011

USA Mastery Martial Arts represents a tradition far beyond the punch, kick and the block.

Attention Parents!

“You’re About To Discover The Undisclosed Secrets To Developing A More Focused, Confident, Self-Disciplined and Very Fit Child.”

By: John Nottingham, founder of USA Martial Arts Phoenix

Dear Phoenix AZ Parent,

As a mother or father you prepare your child for the future the best way you can everyday, but what about developing the core “Character and Social Skills”: The Inner Strength to speak up for themselves, the ability to Concentrate and be Dedicated so they can set and achieve worthwhile goals. What about developing the initiative and responsible discipline to start and do the right things on their own without being reminded over and over again?

Timeless Martial Arts Wisdom For Success In Life!
There are so many skills we need to teach our kids to be successful, yet there’s so little time and so many distractions. If there was a Fun, Exciting and Easy Way for your child to get all of the “fundamental skills for life” needed for success would you be interested or at least be open-minded enough to try it out and see for yourself?

Specialists At Building Self-Esteem & Confidence in Kids
My name is John Nottingham, and I’ve been a Martial Arts instructor for over 23 years, specializing in helping children and families become highly successful at those essential life skills.

Why Parents Bring Their Kids To Karate
One thing that I’ve discovered over the years is that more families bring their children to karate for so many other reasons totally unrelated to kicks, blocks and punches. The unfortunate part is that there are too many martial arts schools out there who claim they can deliver what parents really want but fail miserably at actually making it happen! But not USA Martial Arts Phoenix and I Can Prove it to you!

Arm Your Child With Self Esteem, Leadership Skills and an Indomitable Spirit!

Kickboxing Boot Camp in Phoenix Packs a Fitness Punch!

December 8, 2010


Phoenix Kickboxing Bootcamp KOs Fat!

Say the word kickboxing and right away you might conjure up images of TaeBo’s totally ripped Billy Blanks shouting inspiring commands to throngs of sweaty hard bodies. Others might bring to mind a hard bodied MMA Ultimate Fighter sporting Muay Thai trunks and boxing gloves.

However, you might be surprised at the number of men and women getting toned up, lean and mean with a new kind of kickboxing in Phoenix called I Love Kickboxing Phoenix! http://iLoveKickboxingPhoenix.com

It’s a stress releaving, fat burning, fun way to get into the best shape of your life. Phoenix kickboxing classes are very different from martial art in that you are not focussed on learning self defense, instead the classes are geared to emphasize the fantastic fitness and health benefits of kicking and punching your way to fitness. From a rock solid core and tight abs to firm powerful thighs from functional strength and kicking drills.

Phoenix Kickboxing Classes
The classes include cardio, strength, aerobic and anearobic conditioning with a yoga component for flexibility and reducing stress on the body and mind.

Check out some of the benefits of Kickboxing Phoenix…

First, anyone with a body and willingness to show up can do Phoenix Kickboxing. You can work at your own pace and the instructors are very encouraging and highly skilled Black Belts. They are patient and enthusiastic, guiding you step by step through the routines that get you in the best shape of your life.

Phoenix Kickboxing Gym is really rewarding!
It not only gets you fit and super strong, Phoenix Kickboxing will increase your confidence. While it won’t make you a Black Belt or MMA Ultimate Fighter, the confidence you feel will give you a sense of empowerment in everyday life. From work, home to just being around town, you’ll feel better about yourself and your healthy new kickboxing body!

You won’t get these benefits at the gym going through the same old stepping, jogging or spinning routine. Plus it’s a lot cheaper than a personal trainer.

If you’ve been looking for a new way to make your exercise fun, burn fat, drop pounds, tighten the tummy to be a leaner-meaner you for 2011, kickboxing classes in Phoenix is a superb way to go.

Check out the site listed here to get started! Act now and get free boxing gloves (not the cheap kind either – these are top notch real kickboxing gloves for heavy bag work.)

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.
