Phoenix Martial Arts Instructor Aims To Instill Life Skills in Phoenix Karate Kids

February 6, 2012

Why Life Skills?
Most child experts and parents agree that the increased instruction of “Life Skills education” will be pivotal in children’s futures in the years to come. From increased competition in the international job market, today’s children will need skills to prepare them for successful careers and happy, healthy lives. This is why life skills are what more and more parents today look for in a martial arts school for their children.

The Key Is Reinforcing Values Parent’s Teach at Home
The instruction being offered at USA Martial Arts Phoenix is age-specific, educational, inspiring and fun. This is what keeps kids motivated and coming back. Parents like the fact that their children are learning gratitude, international culture, good manners and building confidence. As a result of USA Martial Arts Phoenix life skills instruction, parents view the Phoenix martial arts school as an environment of higher learning and an investment for their child.

The key to effective life skills instruction is fusing traditional martial arts values, tenets and virtues with cutting-edge child development and parenting skills.

“The balance of “old and new” thinking creates a dynamic learning environment that helps a child be their best.”

, according to Professor Brannon Beliso, founder of One Merit Badges Life Skills curriculum.

One Merit Badges is parent’s solution for your children’s life skills education. At best it is a foundation, at minimum, it helps reinforce values they want their children to demonstrate outside the home. “Your child proudly show and tell all their friends about each patch they earn at USA Martial Arts Phoenix.”, says owner and Master Instructor John Nottingham. Students are attracted to USA Martial Arts Phoenix because it is fun, rewarding and they want to learn the valuable life skills we offer.

Our goals is to have parents continue viewing USA Martial Arts Phoenix school as an investment for their child, not an extra-curricular activity, offering the potential for very positive and unique relationship. For parents wanting to give their child the edge in life, be able to handle challenges like bullying, peer pressure and have the inner strength to live their values with dignity, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

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.

How is USA Martial Arts Phoenix Different?

March 16, 2011


How is USA Martial Arts Phoenix Different from Other Martial Arts Schools and Children’s Activities?

Parents and teachers frequently ask how USA Martial Arts is able to create such positive growth in children. From improved respect, better grades, confidence, and how to resolve conflicts peacefully, parents and teachers say we are on to something.

Here are three primary reasons:

1. The USA Martial Arts curriculum is comprised of several award-winning life skills programs including the “I-CAN” curriculum and the STAR (Stop, Think, Act, Review) emotional intelligence and problem solving curriculum. This gives these Karate Kids an edge in virtually every area of their lives.

2. Students are engaged, actively involved in building healthier minds, bodies and an enthusiastic spirit (positive attitude). The USA Martial Arts curriculum passes on the ancient wisdom of Masters with virtues and values such as modesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control and indomitable spirit. It’s not just talk and theory, its hands-on, immersion learning where kids put these lessons to use in each class and see the results of their actions. Nobody sits on the bench at USA Martial Arts. These values, experiences and skills go a long way in building better citizens for the future and champions in life.

3. USA Martial Arts has the best instructors around. They are selected for being outstanding role models and then given more training than any other school. Just take a look at the Instructor selection and training process.

Four Kinds of Kids I’ve Seen

August 23, 2010


To a Caring Parent,

Hi, my name is John Nottingham.

I’d like to tell you the stories of four kinds of kids that I’ve seen walk through the doors of my Martial Arts academy time and time again.

Then, afterward, I’d like to tell you about how this program transformed their lives. And the joy their parents got from seeing the incredible transformations.

(Please note: On this page I say “he” a lot when talking about kids – but that’s just to keep thing simple. Martial Arts is just as much for girls as it is for boys!)

So without further ado… click here
