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.

Master Nottingham, you are the best! Thank you for all you have done for my daughter Bianca. She has changed so much since being under your direction. You make Martial Arts philosophy shine in our eyes and many others I am sure. Thank you! -Angel Harrison, Phoenix AZ

Master Nottingham, we are so honored to be in your Martial Arts Family! Thank you for seeing Ridge’s desire last night to break that board with a sidekick, and then giving him the extra practice to make it happen… so good for his concentration and confidence! Ridge and Noelle are very blessed to be on the road to Black Belts with USA MARTIAL ARTS! – Kimberly Peterson, Scottsdale AZ

This is the best martial arts school in Arizona. The friendlly, knowledgeable and professional staff can help you reach your goals. – Brett Lechtenberg

We love USA Martial Arts! Diana and Darian are very respectful and having been to only 3 classes so far we can already see a huge improvement in their self confidence and they are all about self control and self discipline all on there own thanks to everyone at USA Martial Arts! – Esmeralda Moran-Villa, Phoenix Arizona

Attention Phoenix Parents…You’re About To Discover The Untold Secrets To Developing A More Focused, Confident, Self-Disciplined and Fit Child.”

February 23, 2011

USA Mastery Martial Arts represents a tradition far beyond the punch, kick and the block.

Attention Parents!

“You’re About To Discover The Undisclosed Secrets To Developing A More Focused, Confident, Self-Disciplined and Very Fit Child.”

By: John Nottingham, founder of USA Martial Arts Phoenix

Dear Phoenix AZ Parent,

As a mother or father you prepare your child for the future the best way you can everyday, but what about developing the core “Character and Social Skills”: The Inner Strength to speak up for themselves, the ability to Concentrate and be Dedicated so they can set and achieve worthwhile goals. What about developing the initiative and responsible discipline to start and do the right things on their own without being reminded over and over again?

Timeless Martial Arts Wisdom For Success In Life!
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 “fundamental skills for life” needed for success would you be interested or at least be open-minded enough to try it out and see for yourself?

Specialists At Building Self-Esteem & Confidence in Kids
My name is John Nottingham, and I’ve been a Martial Arts instructor for over 23 years, specializing in helping children and families become highly successful at those essential life skills.

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

Arm Your Child With Self Esteem, Leadership Skills and an Indomitable Spirit!

The Kitten I Nearly Killed: A Cat, a Kitten and Self-Defense

June 11, 2010


Something moving! A black and white fur ball is all I saw as my headlights panned around the turn in the parking lot. I saw it just in time. Thankfully I was going slow enough that I wasn’t alerted to it with a thump.

Tonight I was returning home to Scottsdale from teaching my usual evening class at USA Martial Arts Paradise Valley when I saw Mother Nature at her best. A fluffy black and white kitten scurried into my path. Despite the obvious danger of my car approaching, his mother, wide eyed and partially crouched, put her self in harms way to protect her young.

Fortunately I had spotted them just in time and hit my brakes. The mother cat picked up the kitten by the scruff of the neck and carried him to safety.

It is situations like these that keep me in awe of our innate survival instincts and the lengths that parents will go to in order to protect their young. Male, female, young, old, all shapes and sizes, we are each uniquely equipped with survival signals and skills to be able to defend ourselves.

We have models of successful survival all around us in nature. Perhaps that is why I find it surprising that so many people in my audiences and in public have such distorted views of self-defense.

Do we not see ourselves as part of nature?

Kicking Up Some Fun at USA Martial Arts Karate for Kids

Tiny Tigers, Dragons and Ninjas
Our pre-school program is designed to develop children’s self esteem, coordination and ability to follow directions. These skills give children an advantage in their ability to learn in school and life.

Little Tigers Kids Martial Arts
Our Little TIGERS program is designed specifically for children ages 5-6. The curriculum is designed to establish a good foundation for a continued education in the martial arts, as well as helping to shape children into healthy, positively minded young people. The classes are energetic with fast paced activities designed to keep children interested and engaged throughout the entire class.

The program uses games, teamwork drills, and instructor lead activities to introduce fundamental self-defense techniques and develop coordination and flexibility. Children are required to work with partners and in teams toward common goals, teaching them how to share and act responsibly within a group. Students are also introduced to some of the basic value and principals of the martial arts such as respect, responsibility, and self-discipline.

TRIAL PROGRAM
If the USA Martial Arts Children’s program seems right for you, we welcome you to participate in our trial program. The trial program allows children to try a few classes before enrolling. To ensure a smooth and comfortable transition into the group class, the first lesson will be with one of our certified instructors where your child will be introduced to the basic techniques used in class. At that point, they’ll be ready to participate in a beginner group class. You’ll be amazed how much they learn in only a few classes!
