New Phoenix PV Scottsdale Martial Arts School More than Just Kicks and Punches

Kids Karate Phoenix Martial Arts Taekwondo Karate Self Defense Kung Fu MMA Kick Boxing

Look out Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, and UFC MMA fans, the Karate Kids are coming to Phoenix. USA Martial Arts is opening it’s newest location at Tatum and Greenway in Paradise Valley Phoenix.


“Rather than the typical Karate Dojo or corner Martial Arts school, our focus isn’t on promoting our style or fighting. Our goal is to build our students confidence, character and create tomorrows leaders.”, said Master Instructor and owner John Nottingham

Designed specifically for families, men, women and children as young as 4 years old can kick and punch their way to fitness and learn much more than just self-defense and a few moves. Specializing in kids and families the school motto is “Families that kick together, stick together.”

Confidence, self-discipline, focus and character development lessons are integrated into lessons with timeless martial arts wisdom in a positive, encouraging environment. Martial Arts Instructors are each selected for their patience, enthusiasm and positive attitude as well as martial arts skills.

Fit, positive role-model instructors who lead by example!

The convenient location in the Albertson’s center on the South West corner of Tatum and Greenway serves the areas of Scottsdale, Cave Creek and Paradise Valley Phoenix.

A Fun Way To Family Fitness in a Positive Place

“We are the only school likely to ENCOURAGE you to SHOP AROUND! That may seem crazy, but that’s just how confident we are. The parents who shop all the Scottsdale/PV Phoenix area schools and find us are always the most likely to enroll at USA Martial Arts because they see and experience the difference. We’re honored that so many transfer students and Black Belts choose our Academy. We invite everyone to come by and meet our team. They key is finding the RIGHT school for YOU or your child- even if it isn’t ours. We love martial arts and the important thing is to just get started (in any good school)”

This USA Martial Arts school is much more than the corner Karate dojo, TaeKwonDo dojang or Kung Fu gym. The traditional and mixed martial arts classes have something for everybody from fitness, women’s self-defense, Taekwondo Karate for Kids, Teen XMA Parkour Freerunning tricking and stunts, personal training, and special guest teachers.

Here are just some of the new schools features:

Tiny Tigers and Lil’ Ninjas children’s program including Stranger-Anti-abduction skills

Greetings students and friends:

We are very excited to announce good news. Our broker reached an agreement with the Albertsons anchored shopping center at Tatum and Greenway in Paradise Valley/Phoenix for our new space. This is just minutes from our previous location. We will move into a temporary 1800sf location in the center until such time as our permanent space becomes available and we build our suite.

Under new management, the new 2400 square foot facility will be larger and better equipped, making it one of the finest in the region. It will feature fitness equipment, free hanging MMA heavy bags, a kid zone, as well as a new array of services, including day camp and after school martial arts.

The school will also feature separate classes for Yoga, MMA Grappling and IMPACT Cardio/Strength Fitness Kickboxing. Personal training, massage and other services will also be available. We will be significantly expanding class time options for your convenience and scheduling flexibility. Students can also look forward to our own XMA Demo Team, as well as a Parkour FreeRunning tricking training.
