Phoenix Martial Arts Builds Young Minds and Bodies

Children love learning at USA Martial Arts Phoenix in North Phoenix Arizona. Our martial arts programs are high-energy, fun and interactive.

The mission of the USA Martial Arts school is to build our student’s character, inner strength and self esteem, which we do by acknowledging, recognizing and rewarding not just our student’s accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well.

Learning martial arts is a physical and mental discipline, involving all muscle groups to help develop a student’s physical fitness as well as focus of the mind. At USA Martial Arts Phoenix our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and martial arts techniques of kicking, punching, throwing and blocking. At USA Martial Arts Phoenix, we use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character, leadership and life-improvement skills in our students.

Our martial arts Phoenix emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing self confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self discipline, and life-long good physical fitness habits.

Step 1. Find The Right Karate School for You or Your Children
Do You Have a Karate Kid?

One of the most important aspects of selecting the right Karate School for your Children is to find the right martial arts instructor. The Karate Teacher needs to be good with children, have the ability to communicate clearly, be a good role model and have a passion for teaching Karate as more than just kicks, blocks and punches.

Traditional Karate | Freestyle Karate | American Karate | Korean Karate | Japanese Karate |Okinawan Karate

Each instructor has different abilities just as each Karate school has its own specialties. Some specialize in life skills, self esteem, self defense, tournament competition or cultural martial arts and Japanese, Okinawan or Asian tradition (Shotokan, Shito Ryu, Goju Ryu, and Wado Ryu).

The best way to find out is to visit local Karate Dojos and see the Karate Instructors in person and then try a class or trial course.

Look for a Karate instructor who leads by example because the teaching staff of Black Belt instructors will certainly follow suit. The experience a child has in the beginning will often determine how far as well as what belt rank they achieve. That is why it may be worth a little extra investment in tuition or driving a bit further to a better school with more experienced instructors.

Depending on your goals, it may be wise to seek out an authentic Master (Usually 6th Dan and higher with 25+ years of experience) to learn the philosophy and intricacies of the art.

Step 2. Create a Goal Plan for Karate Success

It is important to set realistic goals to achieve the benefits you want. Poor attendance or lack of consistency in training can sabotage a beginning Karate student’s experience. If you don’t feel successful or see results, it can be discouraging. Be patient, consistent and dedicated to doing your best in every class. Focus on improvement rather than perfection and celebrate all progress.

Step 3. Commit to Your Plan and Plan for Contingencies to Succeed in Karate

Everyone can go to Karate class when it is easy or they are new and excited. It takes the realization that the most important class you or your child will ever attend is the one that they won’t feel like attending. Dedication and discipline are just like muscles and must be exercised so they grow stronger. Without consistent practice and encouragement, those attitudinal attributes grow weaker. Resistance builds strength – and that goes for a child’s attitude and spirit as well. This is one of the great life lessons that martial arts such as Karate can teach. These Karate lessons will carry over to other children’s activities and sports as well. That is why Karate and other Martial Arts Black Belts are so sought after by coaches and respected by teachers.

Step 4. Follow The Guidance of Your Karate Instructors (Sensei).

Most successful people from corporate executives to professional athletes have coaches. Role models, coaches and mentors help you overcome many of the common pitfalls that would prevent you from reaching your goals. They can provide motivation and inspiration as well as share wisdom in how to overcome the typical obstacles along the way.

Remember too that Karate should never be used as punishment or linked in any way to punishment. Since it is a form of discipline, even though it may be a privilege to learn, connecting any negative experience to it may have unintended consequences (like causing a child to feel defeated or even quit) and it may be destroying a healthy, positive tool for developing great children. Keeping it part of “life education” is a key to success and especially earning the esteemed Karate Black Belt.

Step 5. Review and renew your Karate goals.

Adjust attendance to accommodate other sports, homework and activities. Remember that martial arts such as Karate is a lifestyle as well as a sport, so maintaining attendance is key to a child’s success – especially Black Belt. Discuss your goals and other concerns with your Karate Teacher to have the best chance of success. Good Karate teachers will support your child’s development, goals and dreams.
