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:
  1. How to Deal With Bullying The Smart Way
  2. How to Focus and Concentrate for Better Grades
  3. How to Respect Himself and Others
  4. How to Solve Problems To Be Happy

The Secret to Taekwondo Kicking

October 26, 2011

TaeKwonDo TangSooDo HapKiDo KukSoolWon HwarangDo ChunKukDo TaekKyeon

Bruce Lee Learned Taekwondo Kicking From Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee

Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, and instills much more than physical self defense, kicking and punching skills. Some know it for the sport division featured in the Olympic games. However, the majority of men, women and children practice Taekwondo for a healthy, fun recreation and the amazing benefits of the traditional and cultural aspects of the art. It is a discipline that reveals a way of enhancing our spirit and life through correct training our body and mind.

Bruce Lee Kicks with Jhoon Rhee on a Beach


This trademark kicking style is featured in various Korean martial arts including Kuk Sool, Hwarang Do, Hapkido, Hanmudo, Yudo, Tang Soo Do, Choi Kwang Do, and major organizations such as the World TKD Federation (WTF), the International TaeKwon-Do Federation (ITF), the American Taekwondo Association (ATA), as well as many others.

The secret to advanced Taekwondo kicking is found in three essential components.

First, a foundation of correct form and proper mechanics must be built. This is developed through specialized drills and training routines that build strength, control and proper body movement. In Taekwondo, special emphasis is placed on core strength, hip and low back conditioning to enable the range of motion for proper kicking. The conditioning provides a harmony of strength, flexibility and timing. Together these form a potent combination that is the foundation for exotic, practical and powerful kicking techniques.

Flexibility drills such as dynamic stretch kicking, passive stretches and P.N.F. (resistance/contraction) stretching help improve range of motion, control and the ability to place kicks with pin point accuracy. The dynamic and plyometric kicking speed drills condition the muscles and nervous system to be explosive and lightning fast. This usually consists of breaking down the kicking mechanics into its sub movements, such as lifting the knee to chamber a kick. The drill would include starting from a sparring stance, chambering the knee as rapidly as possible for a set period of time – perhaps 30 seconds. It is followed by a rest cycle then repeated.

Another tool for developing advanced kicking is the variety of kicking paddle drills. A kicking paddle is a Taekwondo practicioners target used to simulate a moving human. The Taekwondoist has to anticipate and attack the target while in motion, adapting to ever changing distance and timing. They learn to point the knee, stay relaxed and adopt a highly versatile sparring stance to be able to change quickly and capitalize on opportunity.

The next secret to Taekwondo kicking is the use of the hip. In the above photo you can see Black Belt Anthony Miles of USA Martial Arts Phoenix speed breaking bricks with a spin side kick. The power in his kick comes from momentum, torque (from turning the hip) and great side kick mechanics (alignment). He does a great job of lining up his kick to drive through the bricks and concentrating his force in a small area.

To increase range of motion, a Taekwondo practicioner will strive to stay relaxed to enable efficient movement. Next, they will adopt a versatile stance and make use of their arms by swinging them to initiate faster adaptation, rotation, torque and mobility.

The advanced jumping and spinning kicks are developed by practicing a variety of jumping and spinning drills. The common trait of all great kickers is the willingness to practice consistently over time. Perhaps this is the greatest secret of great kicking.

One of the formulas many competitors use is to practice every kick they know ten times on each side for a session. Another classic method is to throw 1000 kicks a day. Of course, the best training protocol depends on your level, body, goals and guidance from a qualified teacher.

In Korea, most children practice Taekwondo kicking with a spirit of play. They accumulate a high volume of kicking repetitions in addition to regular Taekwondo class attendance. The demonstration teams also use friendly competition to encourage advancement and higher levels of difficulty and skill.
