Develop a More Focused, Confident, Fit Child with Martial Arts in Phoenix

March 14, 2011

Attention Phoenix AZ Parents!

“The Secrets To Develop a More Focused, Confident, Self-Disciplined and Physically Fit Child Revealed To Phoenix Parents.”

From:
John Nottingham, Owner- USA Martial Arts Phoenix

Dear Friend,

As a parent you prepare your child for the future the best way you can everyday, but what about developing the core “Character Lessons and Practical Life Skills”: The Self-confidence to speak up for themselves, the ability to Stay Focused so they can get good grades and set and achieve their goals. How about developing the Self-Discipline to start and do the right things on their own without being reminded again and again by you?

There are so many skills for life that 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 life skills” needed for success would you be interested or at least be open-minded enough to test it out and see for yourself?

Happy Healthy Safer Karate Kids!

Nothing Builds Confidence Like Knowing Self Defense

My name is John Nottingham, and I have been a martial arts and self-defense teacher for over 25 years, specializing in helping kids and families become super successful at those core life skills. My team and I teach bully prevention, stranger safety, conflict avoidance, and practical personal protection strategies as well. You may have seen us on channels 3, 5, 10, 12 news or in newspapers or magazines. As an Eagle Scout and former Army Airborne soldier, I take these traditional martial arts values very seriously, but teach them to children in a fun way. My team is hand picked and highly trained to lead by example and encourage these values in each child.

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

Jiu-jitsu MMA Program Now Enrolling Phoenix – Scottsdale – Paradise Valley

September 21, 2010

The Way Martial Arts Should Be Taught
Mixed Martial Arts Designed For Your Body, Goals and Safety

With the popularity of MMA events like the UFC, more an more people are interested in learning the skills of mixed martial arts. But not everyone wants to learn in an intimidating gym setting with all of its uncomfortable atmosphere and testosterone driven fighter attitudes.

Our BJJ MMA program is designed to build you up, rather than tear you down, increase your strength, not test your will and durability. Be a safe place to train and enjoy yourself, not worry about being embarrassed and getting injured. We place our emphasis on gaining wisdom, improving skills through better leverage, position and strategy. Much like chess, the win usually goes to the better strategist who can outwit his opponent and gain the advantage.

Self defense: You will learn one of the most acclaimed combat system in existence today.

Skill development: You will dramatically enhance your motor skills, coordination, reflexes, balance and agility, which will positively impact all your other activities.

Physical development: You will build strength, flexibility and an overall wellness only achieved through positive physical activity.

Self improvement: Confidence gained from setting and accomplishing goals. Self discipline, perseverance, and new found courage, achieved by conquering new challenges. You will defuse stress and acquire a powerful new focus. Therien Jiu-Jitsu will give you the edge.

If you are going to try martial arts once in your life, give yourself a memorable experience.

You will begin a journey of rich traditions, exhilarating skills, and most of all gratifying accomplishments. You will progress step by step through the most sophisticated martial arts training system available. From your white belt presentation, through thousands of combat techniques, hundreds of hours of physical development, deeply satisfying achievements, all the way to the day you receive your world renowned black belt, the USA Martial Arts experience is one that you won’t want to trade for anything else.

At its core is one of the most dynamic and effective martial arts system in the world, yet USA Martial Arts Schools retain a family atmosphere. Camaraderie, friendships, instructors that care and are truly dedicated to your success, and an unmatched positive environment empower you to achieve your goals.

In just a few brief weekly sessions you can be on your way to what is surely going to be your most exciting activity.

Let us invest our nearly four decades of experience into your success.

Apply for acceptance today. (We interview each applicant to weed out those with bad attitudes or those who would make training unsafe or uncomfortable for other members.)

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.
