Chuck Norris says…Karate is the Best Thing You Can Do For Your Child

June 2, 2012

If Walker Texas Ranger endorses it, you know it’s good.  Carlos “Chuck” Norris began his martial arts journey while an Airman in Korea.  He studied the Korean Martial Art of Tang Soo Do.  Today a branch of that martial arts family is teaching classes at an award-winning school in Phoenix Arizona called USA Martial Arts & Kickboxing. 

“Karate is the best thing you can do for your child.” -Chuck Norris
Hello Parent,
My name is John Nottingham and I’ve been teaching children and adults martial arts and self defense for over 27 years.  You may recognize me from my appearances on channels 3, 5, 10, 12 or in the AZ Republic, Arizona Parenting or my modest work in TV or Film.  My passion is sharing the life enhancing benefits of martial arts and self defense with people of all ages and abilities.
I would be honored to have the opportunity to teach you or your child the secrets I’ve spent my lifetime learning.  You’ll not find them in any other sport or activity.
You see, I’ve been very blessed to have traveled the world and trained in Korea, China and with the best of the best.  My passion for researching and learning martial arts is only rivaled by my passion to teach it and share the amazing life transforming power of this discipline.
Martial Arts transformed my life and it can transform your child’s too.
Here are the USA Martial Arts Phoenix our tenets recited as the principles of Black Belt at the beginning of each class.
“As a dedicated student of the martial arts, I will live my life by the principles of Black Belt.
o Modesty
o Courtesy
o Integrity
o Perseverance
o Self Control
o Indomitable Spirit
If you would like a change in your life or maybe your child’s life, I would invite you to give us a try.  My school is quite unique in that we only work with select students who have a sincere desire to learn.
No worries friend…You don’t have to have any special athletic ability or skill, in fact quite the opposite.  While we have champions and Black Belts who transfer to us for higher education, the majority of our students are beginners who have never done any martial arts.
Your Child Will Learn:

Martial arts Karate for kids – Let your little one get his kicks

Chances are that they prefer to stay indoors, slumped on the sofa with a bag of chips in one hand and the TV remote control in the other. It’s been proven that children these days spend more time playing with gadgets or watching television and less time engaging in some physical activity outdoors.

Testimonials
Gabriel really enjoys coming, his concentration and focus as well as his ability to pay attention and listen have improved amazingly. I find it is great for his confidence too.

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.

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.

The ABC’s of Personal Safety from a Security Self Defense Specialist

March 21, 2011

The ABC’s of Personal Safety from a Security Self Defense Specialist, Trainer and Speaker

Self Defense Tips – The ABC’s of Personal Safety and Security for Personal Protection

Self defense is something everyone knows that we should learn, yet few actually do. Rather than use a few self defense or fighting tips as an emotional pacifier, it is important to test and apply what you think you know. It is through this process that self defense competence is built. With self defense competence comes personal protection and security confidence. A good self defense instructor will ad to your peace of mind and help you use your innate survival signals and skills to bring to bear in protecting yourself and/or the ones you love.
When you learn to defend yourself you are less likely to have to because:

1. You tend to avoid potentially dangerous situations because you recognize them earlier
2. You are more likely to trust your intuition/gut feelings therefore act on them
3. Project more confidence which often removes you from the victim profile. Criminals like easy targets, not difficult ones.

HERE ARE A FEW OF OUR ABC’s OF PERSONAL PROTECTION – SELF DEFENSE STRATEGIES FOR PERSONAL SECURITY

Alert to Avoid Potentially Dangerous Situations
– Knowledge and Awareness of dangerous situations and how criminals operate
– Trusting instincts and Acting on intuition
Always observe safe habits and practices – Remember, we are always building habits – so practice good ones

Breathe and Be Calm by Believing you have options
– Belly Breath with Backpressure on exhale helps manage stress, adrenaline and fear
Be looking for opportunities, weapons, barriers, escape routes and targets
Be prepared with training and a plan but Be flexible

Communicate with Confidence and Commit
Clearly say and demonstrate directly what you mean and mean what you say
Change the Context of any situation you feel might lead to a violent encounter
Commit to your plan and execute with intensity

Distance
Whenever you increase distance, you increase time and options and usually deny the targets

Eyes on targets and Escape options
Eyes, neck, groin, knees, Everything’s a weapon, Escape

No Magic Formula for Earning an Authentic Martial Arts Black Belt

March 10, 2011

USA Martial Arts kids demo at an Arizona Diamondbacks game

WARNING:
READ THIS BEFORE YOU JOIN MY SCHOOL!

As I’ve been saying all along on my blogs, in my newsletter, and on the mat, THERE IS NO “MAGIC FORMULA” that will allow you to instantly achieve an authentic Black Belt, super confident kid, ultimate fighting skill or even a ripped, toned body!

So, don’t expect my trial course to be a magic genie that will instantly grant you a magical results…

Let’s be realistic – earning a Black Belt at USA Martial Arts is HARD. You are going to have to WORK if you want to follow my Martial Arts Black Belt Success System plan to achieve your goals.

A vetted Black Belt in most systems takes between 3-5 years. For some systems it may be shorter or longer. This of course depends also on how frequently and how hard an individual trains.

Can You Earn a USA Martial Arts Black Belt?
Is it do-able? Yes! I did it, and I was an insecure kid with asthma with slipping grades in school struggling to pay for expensive martial arts lessons… I had to work twice as hard as others using nothing more than my own guts, a lot of trial and error, some “sweat blood and tears” and the few bucks I scraped together to get started. I took all that experience and developed my Black Belt Success system over my lifetime and have helped hundreds earn the esteemed rank of Black Belt.

There are many people who have joined my school who DIDN’T make it… maybe they decided it was too hard, or the process wasn’t “quick enough” for them, or that they weren’t cut out to be an authentic Black Belt…

But, that’s the beauty of this introductory trial course WEBSPECIAL – before you’re done completing it, you’ll KNOW what it takes to become a success in anything…

And, you’ll be informed enough to make a decision as to whether it’s right for your child.

Yet, there are many people who have taken the trial course, followed the system I outline, and that credit their success to following the Black Belt Success System.

It might be right for you or your child.

We invite you to give it a try today.

“This Kids Karate Program
Transformed My Son’s Life!…”
“I’d like to know the percentage of Martial Arts schools that honestly and sincerely
teach virtue, code of honor and back it up in the behavior of the staff and students. That’s why I chose USA Martial Arts when I was looking for a school to enroll my son. I passed six other martial arts schools because of the balanced emphasis on character and what I saw in the instructors.”-Ms. Karen Tucker,

-Ms. Penny Medlock, mother of Nathen

Master Nottingham and the USA Martial Arts staff:

Thank you for all you do for your students and community. Our experience with USA Martial Arts: I’d like to start by saying that Gaby has always been a great kid. She expressed an interest in the martial arts around the age of six. When she was eight, we enrolled her in the trial program at USA Martial Arts, which was conveniently located within the same facility that Gaby’s twin sister took gymnastics.

Being a part of this organization improve Gaby’s discipline, her self esteem, her physical ability, she took on and developed leadership qualities, and has acquired an enormous amount of respect for herself and others.

She has since acquired her Black Belt at the tender age of eleven. She has always been a kind person, but within the Leadership Program at USA Martial Arts, Gaby has really been able to display her ability to empathize and mentor the younger students. Watching her succeed has stimulated both my wife and I to set and achieve fitness goals for ourselves.

In most cases, children learn from their parents, but in our case, we have learned about goal setting from Gaby. In closing, we feel as though Mr. Bravo, Master Nottingham and the whole USA Martial Arts family has more than delivered on all of their promises. We are a part of their family and we feel honored and blessed to say that they are a part of ours.

New Generation of Martial Arts Opens in North Phoenix

August 27, 2010

Self Development Through Self-Defense

A unique school just opened in North Phoenix Arizona. It is a place with some unexpected offerings beyond the typical Taekwondo, Jiu-jitsu, Karate or Kung Fu school. It is a place where personal perfection is achieved through personal protection.

Unique Self Defense Instruction in Phoenix
USA Martial Arts founder is a security, military, police and bodyguard trainer with a lifetime experience in teaching self defense to men, women and children of all ages. In fact, over the past two and a half decades, his teachings have reached an audience of over 10,000 people from all over the world.

Clean, Safe, Professional Facilities in Phoenix
The school is much more than the typical corner strip mall Karate dojo. You won’t find teenage instructors strutting around in gaudy Taekwondo uniforms in front of students barking out orders. Nor will you find any drill sergeant attitude or boot camp power trip. While it is a place with a certain reverence and discipline, it is also a welcoming safe-haven. Each instructor is a professional, advanced Black Belt with over 500 hours of instructor training and dedicated to student safety, comfort and success.

Much More Than Kicks, Punches, Blocks & Throws


Students notice the positive, but structured atmosphere immediately upon entering the clean and well conceived facility. Fully modern amenities and technology with tasteful touches of tradition from Korea, China and Japan (Specially selected from when members of the school train there!).

Arizonan’s LOVE The USA Martial Arts Self-Defense System
The USA Martial Arts system teaching method is unconventional to say the least. Developed more like a University learning institution, it centers on the student and their individual goals and course of study.

USA Martial Arts founder is far more concerned that his students perform academically and qualify for scholarships, rather than qualify for the next belt.

“Belts, uniforms, weapons are tools we use to motivate students and pass on character and citizenship skills that cause them to stand out as leaders.”

A Heart for Students
Eagle Scout, Scottsdale Airpark Rotarian, former Army Intelligence trained soldier who served in an Airborne Special Forces Reserve Unit, this Master Instructor demands the best from his instructor cadre. Having nearly 200 Arizona Black Belts to choose from he selects only the best of the best. These are great communicators, motivators, and skilled instructors in articulating concepts with outstanding service. Each instructor must demonstrate what the founder calls a heart for students.

From the moment a student walks through our doors, we begin to look for their unique gifts and talents. We first want to make sure they are having fun because that is where learning and motivation begins. Second we are focussed on developing trust, for this is the basis of the student/parent teacher relationship. We accomplish this by leading by example. You won’t see fat, unhealthy or unkempt instructors barking orders at our school. Rather you will see a smiling instructor who leads by example with humility and a gentle graciousness.

USA Martial Arts has a series of Grand Opening events planned including hosting the Korean Eagle Taekwondo Children’s Team from Seoul, Dan “The Beast” Severn, free events such as Bully Busting, Verbal Judo, Character Kicks, Hit Like a Girl and more. The school is filling up fast as referrals continue to increase and word gets out.

So for those thinking about putting your kids in a Karate program, this could be the opportunity you were waiting for. Plus you can do it for less than you probably suspect.

Our area has been hit hard by the recent changes in the economy. We decided to reduce our regular rates to give families a break trusting that it would be made up in the long run in student loyalty and positive word of mouth advertising. Our aim is to serve the members of this community and we consider it an honor to have the opportunity to teach.

, says the owner and Master Instructor of USA Martial Arts.
