The Best Kept Secret to Building Greater Self-Confidence and Self-Control

April 12, 2011

The Best Kept Secret to Building
Greater Self-Confidence and Self-Control

Give your child the gift of CONFIDENCE
“ I was skeptical when I heard that karate would teach my child discipline, confidence, and self esteem……
But, now – he’s a “Straight A Student,”
Confident, and, Respectful!”

Dear Phoenix Parent,

As a parent, you prepare your child for school the best you can every day. But what do you do about developing the confidence to ask and answer questions? What about the self-control it takes for your child to raise their hand in school? How about the discipline to focus, concentrate and learn at their maximum potential. Our USA Martial Arts Phoenix school will insure these traits will be developed at our Kids Karate and Children Taekwondo programs.

I have been working with children like yours for over 25 years, helping them develop character tools they can use for the rest of their life, such as self-confidence, discipline, respect, naming a few. The USA Martial Arts Phoenix School and its full-time professional staff are fully dedicated to this goal.

In our program your child will not only have fun, but also he or she will learn and build the confidence to be a great success at home, school and in Life! You don’t believe me? Read on and see what some parents have to say about our program.

The Karate for Kids program works hand-in-hand with a child’s schoolwork, providing improved self-discipline, self-confidence, mental alertness and goal setting skills. Watch as your child increases in confidence, energy and spirit. Stand and be dazzled as he becomes unstoppable in his quest for…

Greater academic achievement.
Unshakable self respect.
Increased strength and fitness, in both body and mind.

What we offer in our Karate for Kids program goes beyond kicking, blocking, and punching. It reaches into your child’s inner challenges that goes beyond “beating up the neighborhood bully” – instead it battles with your child’s inner self doubt as he develops.

Doubts like:
” I’m not good enough”
” Am I as good a Johnny?”
” I wish I was smarter than Sarah?”
” Why do they always pick on me?”
” Why doesn’t anybody like me?”

I am sure you have questioned yourself on how to help your child with these doubts. The good news is, I have a proven solution. A Program that has already worked for thousands of children- our Kids Karate program which will help your child learn easier than you think.

Remember, it’s not so much about your child learning the skills to fight others, but the ability to conquer himself by taming his innermost fears. Once your child learns these lifelong self-improvement tools we would have unleashed within him, a powerful, unstoppable force.
In other words, when your child uses the discipline of karate to conquer his fears, he has power to transfer that discipline to all other areas of his life. I know of no other sport that does this better than karate.

You may wonder how we can make a claim that karate is unlike any other sport in helping your child develop the important attributes we have been talking about. Fact of the matter is, that karate will increase your child’s strength, flexibility endurance, balance, and harmony, which in turn will leave him/her marveling at these changes.

In fact, these changes to his/her physical skills will act as a foundation for something much more important: the development of his/her value skills, mental and spiritual; not separate from her physical skills, but intimately connected – even bonded-to them.

The following are but three examples of what areas your child will grow in. These are just three of the powerful, energizing values your child will get from the “Kickin’ Kids” program. In short, you can look forward to your child developing:

Powerful Self Control: Your child will refuse to give in to negative peer pressure, and will develop a deeper respect for rules.
Improved Focus: Your child will learn what’s needed, along with the skill to “zero in” on critical tasks at hand. Normal, yet time-wasting, childhood distractions won’t get in his/her way.
Fearless Self Confidence: Watch as your child finds the courage to open any door life has to offer.

In addition to our internationally recognized Phoenix Kids Karate program, we offer a program called the Little Tigers program and was developed specifically for preschool age children ages 4 through 6. Just like in the Kids Karate program, Little Tigers have their own unique patches and “Victory Stars.” Stars are earned in the same way as the Karate for Kids program, with slight modifications in recognition of the preschool age of the child. Four different colored.

There are many reasons for kids to become involved in the Martial Arts. We have developed programs based on traditional Martial Arts for kids. The Kids Karate Programs are based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills. The building blocks for our system are monthly themes such as:




Self Awareness


Self-Esteem Friendship






In addition to monthly themes, our system includes the unique victory patch. Kids are rewarded special “victory stars.” These difference colored stars are rewarded for outstanding performance in karate class, school, home, or at a tournament competition. Kids may receive the following stars for the following deeds:

GOLD – Straight A’s, honor roll, or significant improvement
SILVER – Special performance awards
BLUE – Monthly themes, weekly lessons, classroom performance
RED – Tournament participation

Four different colored Victory Patches are available to accommodate all the stars that can be earned by high achieving Karate Kids:
Blue 0-24 Stars
Silver 25-49 Stars
Gold 50-99 Stars
Blue/Gold 100+ Stars

Karate Taekwondo Kung Fu & Jiu-Jitsu for Kids

April 22, 2010

Award-winning Confidence Building Children's Martial Arts Programs

Award-winning Confidence Building Children's Martial Arts Programs

Karate Taekwondo Kung Fu & Jiu-Jitsu for Kids
Teaching self awareness, self-confidence and self discipline to kids through modern martial art systems based on 800-year old Asian traditions.

We take a peaceful approach to the ancient Japanese budo and Korean mudo and Chinese wutao traditions. We practice in a formal but non-comparative atmosphere. The dojo / dojang (training hall) is a safe and clean environment where cooperation and community are reinforced. Martial arts can be an excellent choice of study among so many alternatives in today’s world for children.

Our kids classes
Our Lil’ Tigers range in age from 4-6 and our Karate for Kids is specifically designed for ages 7-12 years old. We focus on physical fitness, self control, patience, self confidence, and just having fun. We do a lot of rolling, moving and educational games. Flexible, convenient class times are available Monday – Saturday with tuition starting at just $39 a month after registration.*

Program Benefits
Here are some of the benefits of our program for kids:

Assuring children receive a solid grounding in techniques, terminology and customs
Strong foundation in ukemi/nakbop (rolling and falling safely to protect oneself) which allows for a tremendous understanding of the physical self with movement, balance and coordination
Improve self discipline through training regimen, meeting personal goals and participation in dojo activities
Build self confidence through increasing mastery of techniques and improved conditioning
Self awareness through a physical understanding of movement with intention and heightened awareness of fellow students’ movements and needs
Earn and command respect through instructors’ examples and appropriate behavior expectations
Emphasize improved physical fitness and conditioning adapted to the unique needs of each student
Assure family and parental participation via our easy to follow approach
Encourage participants to set goals and seek self-improvement through a flexible and individually challenging awards system
Prepare students for a seamless blending into regular adult training
Awareness and understanding of proper etiquette used at the dojo to help bring these new attitudes and connections into their daily life.

To get started
Have your child try a class. It’s fun and it’s free. Just have him or her wear something like sweat pants or gym clothes to move freely. When you come, we’ll ask that you sign a small liability form. The classes are safe, but any physical activity may have some risk of injury. You are welcome to stay to watch the class and meet the other parents. Afterwards, if you’d like to join, you can get a gi (uniform) and sign up. There are no extra sign up fees or contracts. All dues are month-to-month. A gi runs between $30 and $80 depending on the size and make. We have uniforms available at the dojo and you can purchase one through us if you like.

Our teachers and program
Our instructors have many years experience working with children. We’ve developed a training program that encourages kids to set goals and seek self-improvement through a flexible and individually challenging awards system. The program also encourages family and parental participation.
