Award-winning Martial Arts School in Phoenix Teaches More Than Kicks

January 30, 2012


It’s one thing to promote what you do to a community and the benefits of the martial arts. Of course my staff and I have a very biased point of view. So instead of sharing what we think about USA Martial Arts & Kickboxing Phoenix, we thought we would share some of the comments we’ve received just in the last week or so.

Now you can hear from actual Phoenix, Scottsdale, PV and Cave Creek parents of USA Martial Arts & Kickboxing Phoenix students and the public. Decide for yourself how we stack up and if we might be right for your child and their journey in the martial arts.

Paradise Valley Martial Arts School Uses Animals to Teach Kung Fu Self Defense

June 13, 2010

Learn About the Five Animals of Shaolin Kung Fu as seen in The Karate Kid and Kung Fu Panda

Shaolin Animal Kung Fu


You may have seen them in Kung Fu Panda or in the new Karate Kid. What is Shaolin Kung Fu and the Five Animal System?

One of the great benefits I experienced while training in China was the culture, history and philosophy of Chinese expressed through the martial arts (WuShu) such as Taiji (Tai Chi), the Shaolin 5 Animal System and others.

I’ve also been blessed to study with a world-class Wushu Master who was the stunt double for Jet Li. The lessons I’ve learned and continue to learn are integrated into the USA Martial Arts curriculum to provide our students with an unparalleled education and unforgettable experiences.

Here are some interesting facts on Five Animal Kung Fu.

John Nottingham Shaolin Temple China


Dragon, Tiger, Leopard (Panther), Crane & Snake. There are also other variations such as 7 animal kung fu that include the monkey, mantis and eagle.

WuXing, Shaolin Boxing, Shaolin Wushu or Chinese Kung Fu are all names you may have heard to describe this expression of Martial Art.

DRAGON
The movements of the Dragon emphasize cultivation of your fighting spirit and develop your internal energy.

TIGER
The movements of the Tiger emphasize strengthening of your bones to help to develop your natural strength and power.

LEOPARD
The movements of the Leopard concentrate on the development of strength, speed and agility.

CRANE
The graceful movements of the Crane specialize in developing your balance and flexibility, and harmonize your hands and your feet. Tranquility and awareness are some of the virtues of the crane.

SNAKE
The movements of the Snake will develop your speed and accuracy. The Snake’s energy flows through its body, which remains supple. The snake appears to be soft yet strong, flexible yet firm -until the moment the viper strikes.

? DID YOU KNOW ?
Tai Chi is considered Crane and Snake. Each style has a different approach to movement and defense, and is ruled by it’s own psychology, personality and expression.

In my experience I have found that the Chinese Martial Arts are very good at helping develop balance, tendon strength and flexibility. That’s why these elements are incorporated into our classes. If you have any other questions or would like to try martial arts as our guest, feel free to stop by in the evenings or contact us at any time. We would love the honor of teaching you martial arts.

How Kung Fu Lessons Like in the Karate Kid Movie Can Help Your Children

June 13, 2010


Imagine if you could equip your child with all the confidence, inner-strength, self-discipline and self-control to help them achieve their dreams.

Picture your son or daughter with the determination, razor sharp focus, self-esteem and character of a Kung Fu Black Belt Champion.

The attitude of gratitude that shows in patriotism, respect towards parents, teachers and others.

With all the other millions of messages and influences our children get today, these lessons are difficult to deliver on your own as parents. That is why our program is so highly recommended by parents and recognized by experts in developing lasting positive habits, social skills, character and leadership in children.

No, your kids won’t get these messages from MTV, television or video games. Nor are they likely to be reinforced while internet surfing or texting with friends. These things are contributing to the pressures and problems our children face these days. …Problems like obesity, lack of motivation and responsibility, listening, and lack of follow through.

So if you are like many parents, you are probably thinking “How can I help my child develop these winning character traits, self-confidence, fitness, concentration and the inner strength to be a leader?

The answer is USA Martial Arts award-winning children’s programs. Right now we’re offering a KUNG FU KIDS class inspired by the KARATE KID movie. Kid’s are excited to learn these moves and we have an opportunity to teach them about culture, history and develop their unique gifts and physical well-being.

Plus we specialize in equipping your children with effective self-defense techniques from our personal protection program designed by a Bodyguard. No other Martial Arts school, sport or summer camp activity in Arizona can do that.

Have Your Kids Try Our Kung Fu Class Inspired by THE KARATE KID movie!

Martial Arts Schools (how do I choose?)

June 6, 2010

Martial Arts Schools (how do I choose?)

The Most Important Aspects of Selecting a Martial Arts Schools are as follows:

There are a myriad of martial arts styles, karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitsu, judo, aikido, tai chi chuan, and kendo, to name a few. Some have passed through the centuries, while others have been modified and are relatively new.

However, the style of martial arts should not be your primary criteria in selecting a martial arts school. Instead, you should consider what is emphasized in the martial arts program.

The Appropriate Martial Arts Emphasis for Children and Families

For children and families, martial arts instruction should primarily be focused on the personal-development aspects of martial arts – rather than the fighting aspects.

All of the martial arts develop self esteem, self confidence, focus and concentration, self discipline, physical fitness and self defense skills. An emphasis on these benefits of martial arts is what you should look for rather than seeking out a specific style of martial arts based on the techniques used for kicks, punches and/or throws.

You should also consider how the martial arts programs are taught. The practice of martial arts is largely about the development of self esteem so you want to find a martial arts program where the instructors emphasize the effort as well as the result.

Self esteem comes from having real successes in doing something you care about. For many children and adults, martial arts can be an important activity that helps build self esteem but only if the martial arts instructors acknowledge, recognize and reward the efforts of the martial arts student as well as their accomplishments and successes.

To summarize – the most important two criteria in selecting a martial arts school should the level of emphasis on personal development and an approach towards teaching that is focused on building self esteem.

To evaluate a school against these two criteria, you should discuss them with the martial arts instructor and observe a class, paying particular attention to what is emphasized and how classes are taught.

Other Criteria To Consider in Choosing a Martial Arts School

1. Curriculum

Is there a structured curriculum?
What are the opportunities for leadership? For competition?

2. Values

Many martial arts schools have a student creed that students must memorize. Does this creed agree with your personal values?
What is the school’s reputation in your community?

3. More Class Considerations

While watching a class, observe the interaction between students and instructors very carefully. The atmosphere should be formal and professional, but the students should be having fun as well. Evaluate if the students seem happy and motivated.
A good instructor can instruct 50 students with control and ease, but for an inexperienced instructor, 5 students might be too many.

4. Martial Arts Instructors

What kind of training do the instructors have? Just because the instructor has a black belt does not mean he or she is a good instructor.
The martial arts instructors at the school you select must be positive role models for the students and should be able to establish an immediate rapport with your child.

5. Martial Arts Facility and Safety Issues – The school should be welcoming and comfortable for both students and parents.

o Is the facility clean?
o Is there a large matted area where students can train?
o Is there a viewing area for parents?

Selecting the right martial school will have a positive influence on your child’s development. We certainly hope you select PV USA Martial Arts Scottsdale Phoenix.

Secrets to Developing a Focused, Confident, Fit Child

June 6, 2010

Attention Parents!

“You’re About To Discover The Hidden Secrets To Developing A More Focused, Confident, Self-Disciplined and Physically Fit Child.”
___________________________________
From:
John Nottingham, Owner- USA Martial Arts
Dear Friend,

As a parent you prepare your child for the future the best way you can everyday, but what about developing the core “Life Skills”: The Confidence to speak up for themselves, the ability to Stay Focused so they can set and achieve their goals. How about developing the Self-Discipline to start and do the right things on their own without being reminded 50 times by you?

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

My name is John Nottingham, and I’ve been a karate instructor for over 25 years, specializing in helping kids and families become super successful at those core life skills.

One thing that I’ve discovered over the years is that more families bring their kids to karate for so many other benefits totally unrelated to kicking and punching. The sad part is that there are too many karate schools out there who claim they can deliver what parents really want but fail miserably at actually making it happen! But not USA Mastery Martial Arts and I Can Prove it to you!
