Phoenix School teaches “Braining” over “Brawling” for Self Defense.

June 23, 2011


Phoenix School teaches “Braining” over “Brawling” for Self Defense.
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.

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.

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:
