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!

Citizenship, Character and Life Lessons From Martial Arts Masters Series

Over the 20 plus years of teaching martial arts, parents have often commented how amazed they are at the transformation in confidence they see in their child. Sometimes it happens quickly and other times it takes a bit longer. Without a doubt martial arts has proven itself as one of the best ways to build a child’s self esteem.


Secrets To Building Self Confidence The USA Martial Arts Way
The next strategy that can make an instant change in your child’s confidence is eye contact.

FREE UNIFORM TRIAL SPECIAL

Have your child practice making and maintaining eye contact upon meeting others. Encourage them to maintain eye contact when someone is asking them a question. Eye contact communicates confidence and self assuredness.

Eye contact like we teach at USA Martial arts says to others that you have inner strength. As children practice using more eye contact, they begin to feel a sense of empowerment. Children begin to see positive response in others and how they are treated. This reinforces their innate value and builds a sense of self worth.

It is important to practice it as well. Good social skills and habits are like muscles – the more you you exercise them, the stronger they become. Have your child role play a polite greeting with eye contact.

You can also try martial arts lessons where these habits are encouraged and reinforced on a regular basis.

Discover how our Martial Arts Program will help you raise a safer, happier, healthier child all from learning to kick, block, and punch

September 21, 2010

WHAT’S THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE YOUR CHILD?…

CONFIDENCE!

A confident kid is UNSTOPPABLE!
Discover how our Martial Arts Program will help you raise a safer, happier, healthier child all from learning to kick, block, and punch

“I laughed when I heard that karate could help him in school…
Now he’s a Straight A Student”

It’s amazing, but true . . .
(learn the same lessons that I have – with this special FREE offer!)
And all of it comes from learning how to “kick, block and punch.” Still, you’re wondering if this will work for your child. I understand.

Dear Parent,

I don’t blame you. You’re probably wondering, how could one activity have such an impact on my child?
Well, it’s incredible, but true. The martial arts is not only a sport that can be enjoyed throughout a lifetime, but can also improve the quality of ones life! By teaching wholesome values and, success skills.

My name is John Nottingham, I’m the owner of one of the most successful martial arts schools in the Phoenix area.

For more than 20 years I’ve been nurturing children like yours with character building tools found only in martial-arts. No other sport can match them. I have consulted with over 10,000 Parents and many of them share the same concerns and priorities for their children.

Parents talk about the importance of positive influences, organized activity, developing discipline and confidence, goal-setting, and physical exercise. I’m happy to report that many parents also found that training at USA Martial Arts can accomplish all these objectives.

Your child’s Biggest Challenge comes from:

Their Fears and Self-Doubts. And it’s this limited way of thinking that is all around them that holds them back more than anything.

“I’m not as good as John.”
“I never get what the teacher is saying.”
“Other kids are getting all the breaks.”
“How come I can’t be as popular as Jane.”
“I’m not good at this, it’s just not for me.”
“How come that kid keeps picking on me?”

The list goes on and on. The question is: How can your child defend themselves against these attacks everyday?

When your child uses the power of martial-arts to conquer their fears, they have the power to transfer that to all other areas of life.

Martial-Arts lessons are the best way for your child to develop a continued feeling of confidence and achievement. When it is time for them to move up in rank we require they have your permission and the permission of their school teacher. That is just one of the ways we encourage good academic performance.
Watch as your child increases in confidence, energy, and spirit. You’ll be amazed as they become unstoppable in their quest for:

Greater Academic Accomplishments
Superb Attitude
Fitness
Unshakable Self Respect
Personal Achievement & Black Belt Excellence
All of this while having fun!

“Master Nottingham: Be sure to keep developing great leaders and minds for today’s world. You have no idea how influential you have been in not just my life, but many others. I honestly don’t know what type of person I would have become without martial arts forming a backbone for character.”
-Derek Roberts, Georgia Tech University Student

Your Child will develop the “I Can” “I Will” attitude that will, more than anything, set them a part and make them a leader!
It Does Not happen over night! Anything worth while requires dedication, persistence, and commitment. These character qualities can be learned by doing. I know you’re one of those very select parents who realizes that investing in your child now will pay you big dividends later.

Through our program your child will learn the fundamentals of LEADERSHIP:
Courage, Follow Through, Goal Setting, Communication Skills, Team Work, Self-Discipline, Self-Control, and the list goes on and on.

It doesn’t matter whether your child is out of shape or a star athlete. Martial-arts training will increase their flexibility, stamina and overall health. I have seen so many kids who were at first, over weight or felt physically inadequate transform their appearance and their confidence in themselves by becoming physically fit.

I have seen many star athletes gain the winning edge with the techniques they learn in martial-arts. Over the years I’ve also watched asthmatic children develop the ability to breathe easier (I was one of them. You can read my story in TKD Times Magazine here).

But don’t take my word for it………

“We, the Fox Family, want to thank EACH of you for making this one of the best experiences we have had – individually & together. At every class – from fellow lower belts to the many helpful upper belts that assist in class – we are met with such enthusiasm and encouragement!”
-April, Chris and Ashley Fox

“From my training throughout the last six years, I have gained so much that it is hard to explain with words.I’ve become stronger mentally and physically, continue to strive beyond my expectations, devise goal plans and structured schedules to achieve such goals, established myself as a person, as well as realized the friendships I have made through my martial arts family.”
-Lianne Russo, Arizona State University student

“I just finished reading the book Living the Martial Way. After reading the chapter on the Ideal Master, I realized that is exactly what we found in Sabumnim (Master Nottingham) and the wonderful instructors at USA Martial Arts. Chance couldn’t have brought us to a better school.”
– Mrs. Dawn Martin (The entire Martin family are members of the Leadership Program)

Our program can and WILL help your child increase their confidence, self- esteem and discipline, while teaching them life skills that will last them a lifetime and much more. (Let me explain why you MUST come see our program for yourself, it will be the best thing that you’ll ever do for your child.)

Imagine how you’ll feel when your child becomes unstoppable at achieving all of the positive things life has to offer and unstoppable at avoiding all of the negative things life has to throw our way.
In our martial arts program, your child will improve their confidence, increase their focus, and develop more self-control. We can say this with confidence because we have personally witnessed the positive effects our programs have provided for children just like your own.

Here a short explanation of how our programs teach these valuable life skills:

Confidence – By learning how to protect themselves, your children will develop confidence in their ability to handle life’s challenges. In turn, their improved confidence will give them the courage to say “no” to negative influences.

Focus – We will help your child increase their focus by giving them clear goals and showing them how to reach those goals through hard work and being consistent. (Of course, they won’t realize they’re learning focus because our classes are so much fun! But keep that to yourself – it’ll be our little secret…)

Self-control – Kids learn self-control in the martial arts by learning how important it is to have respect, both for themselves and for others. Martial arts training teaches that in order to get respect, you first have to give it. Once your child learns this important lesson, their self-control will naturally increase.

As you can see, our martial arts programs teach so much more than “just kicks and punches.” We help children develop life-skills that will take them far beyond the four walls of our martial art school – benefits that will last them a lifetime.

Positive Role Models Who Will Encourage Your Child to Succeed
Kids need strong role models who set a positive example for them to follow. Yet, everyone knows that kids can’t look up to professional athletes anymore – so where can they turn for positive examples to follow?

Our answer to this question is our professional staff of caring instructors. We honestly believe our martial art instructors are some of the best role models your child could have.

Experience has shown us that kids respond to our martial art teachers in way that no other coach or instructor can match. Because we realize how much our students look up to us, we work hard to set a positive example for them by living the martial arts principles of honesty, integrity, courage, kindness, and self-control.

As you know, children are hard-wired to seek attention and approval. So, when kids see positive behaviors demonstrated by our instructors, they are strongly driven to display those same behaviors in their own actions.

Karate is the Best Thing You Can Do For Your Child, Guaranteed!

To repeat, Martial Arts are less about your child learning to fight others, and more about fighting themselves. Their innermost fears. Conquer them, and your child unleashes within himself a powerful, unstoppable force.

A force that gives him the strength to kick down the doors of their own self doubts, A force that opens your child to the exalting power of values.

In other words, when your child uses the discipline of martial arts to conquer their fears, they have the power to transfer that discipline to all other areas of his life. I know of no other sport that does this better than karate. (I should know. Remember, I’ve been teaching it for 26 years.)

As you can see there are many great reasons to get involved in our program but the many benefits your child will develop, don’t start happening until you ACT!

Since many parents are not familiar with the benefits that USA Martial Arts PV provides, we would like to make a very special offer:

I’m going to allow you to check out USA Martial Arts Phoenix totally at NO Risk to you and at 100% my expense…

Why Every Parent Should Have Their Child Learn Martial Arts

June 12, 2010

info@usa-martialarts.com


Why Every Arizona Parent Should Have Their Child Learn Martial Arts

By Shihan Dave Kovar

I believe that every child should learn Martial Arts.

There is a reason why Oprah, Dr Phil, Dr Laura Schlesinger, Jillian Michaels (Biggest Loser), Tony Robbins, pediatricians, child physiologists, and educators the world over all have alluded to the fact that Martial Arts is one of the most valuable things you can involve your child in.

It goes way beyond self defense and can help a child in nearly every aspect of their life. Improved health and fitness, athletic enhancement, increased confidence, better concentration, better behavior, more courteous and respectful; martial arts can help in all these areas.

Does this sound too good to be true? It’s not. As a matter of fact, many experts agree that in this day and age of escalating childhood obesity, increased playground violence and deteriorating family structure, if you do nothing else for your child, you should make sure that they learn how to swim and they learn martial arts. Let’s discuss why.

Self Defense – “Practice the fight so that you don’t have to” is a phrase that is often used to describe the self defense benefits of martial arts training. It refers to the fact that as a child becomes more confident in their ability to defend themselves thru martial arts training. The need to defend themselves automatically decreases because they unconsciously begin to carry themselves in a more confident manner and that confidence is projected to those around them, making them less vulnerable to predatory behavior. On top of that, martial arts’ training includes strategic self defense as well as actual self defense. Children are taught how to recognize a potentially dangerous situation and how to avoid confrontations.

Athletic Enhancement – There is a reason why virtually every professional sports team in virtually every major sport supplements their training with martial arts. Martial arts training offer several advantages. First off, it is amazingly effective in enhancing general coordination because it uses every part of the body in a balanced way. Upper body, lower body, right side, left side, forward movement, lateral movement, rotational movement, it’s all included in martial arts training.

Fitness – The three pieces of the fitness puzzle are strength, flexibility and endurance. Martial arts training demand a balance between the three. Therefore, a child who trains in martial arts will find their deficiencies greatly enhanced. Also, because of the balance in the three pieces of the fitness puzzle, they are less likely to injure themselves while participating in other athletic endeavors.

Health – Martial arts training is a proven link to better health for people of all ages, but especially children for several reasons. First off, it is great exercise. But because it is fun, kids don’t mind doing it. Discussing diet and lifestyle habits with students is a part of martial arts training, so children who grow up training develop healthy habits that will stick with them for life.

Concentration – Very few activities engage the mind, body and spirit more than martial arts. Because of this, a child’s ability to concentrate is greatly enhanced by their martial arts training and this concentration tends to be easily transferable to other activities.

Respect and Courtesy – Due to the fact that martial arts teaches techniques that could be harmful to others if applied, martial arts instructors are obliged to stress the importance of respect, courtesy, and restraint. It has been proven time and again that children who are skilled in martial arts tend to be extremely respectful, considerate and composed.

Confidence – Martial arts virtually always lends to increased confidence in children for a couple of specific reasons. First off, there are no bench sitters, every child participates and is judged not against others but more importantly, against their own potential. Secondly, the structure of martial arts is built on the concept of setting children up for success by giving them a series of realistic, short term goals that they can attain quickly while keeping them focused on an exciting, long term goal. Each time they experience success, their confidence improves until they tend to believe that with hard work and dedication, they can accomplish just about anything.
