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.

Life Lessons Developed Through Martial Arts Phoenix

Classes at Phoenix Martial Arts end with group discussions, role-playing exercises, encouragement and rewards. We integrate life lessons, citizenship and character of wise martial arts philosophy and discuss alternate resolutions to some of the issues children face today. These issues are discussed in a non-threatening, proactive
way.

Children pay close attention as we explore topics that include:

Avoiding conflicts
Dealing with bullies
Mental self-defense
Proper respect for adults
Stranger awareness
Respect for self and others
Saying “no” to drugs and peer pressure

These valuable life lessons help our martial arts Phoenix students understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age, and beyond.

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!
