The Secret To Happier, Healthier More Confident Kids…

May 31, 2011

•••Attention Parents•••

Can you find your child in this checklist?

“If So, Read On…You Might Just Find
the Big Breakthrough You’ve Been
Seeking for Your Child!”

___ Rita, age 11, used to be confident…ready to take on the world. But after starting middle school, she seems like a different person: hesitant and unsure of herself.
The peace of the household is frequently disturbed. Everything is a battle: getting ready for school; dinnertime; homework; even things that used to be enjoyable family activities are now potential battles. Screaming matches occur on a regular basis.

___ Paula is so concerned about being popular. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, worry that this will make her an easy target for negative peer pressure.

___ Simon used to enjoy playing outside, but has now settled into a couch potato lifestyle. He is putting on weight and seems to be increasingly hooked on junk food.

___ Martin, bright, smart, and formerly very interested in doing well, has succumbed to the mentality that, somehow, it’s not “cool” to try hard with his school work.

___ Mr. and Mrs. Grant are frustrated at the level of disrespect demonstrated by their children. The kids never used to talk like this before! The Halls think, “If I had talked like that when I was a kid — I would have gotten clobbered!”

___ It seems that Harper always gravitates toward the “bad crowd.” He is attracted to kids that don’t do well in school and are constantly in trouble.

___ Grace is concerned about her son, Alex. Since the divorce, he doesn’t have a positive male role model. Alex is often sullen and difficult to get along with.
If you’ve “found” your son or daughter on the checklist above
(and most people do)… Read on…

Note: We get reports like these, literally every day, from parents
whose kids train at “USA Martial Arts Phoenix.”

Gabriella’s confidence has grown tremendously since earning her Green Belt. Mrs. Johnson, her teacher, has just called to say that Jenny can now stand up in front of the class in school and confidently speak. Mom and Dad are shocked and surprised.

Not only has Jacob gotten into great physical shape…his athletic skill has improved enormously. Jacob seems to have a newfound love of being outdoors, playing, and running.

Cory, formerly terrified of moving outside his comfort zone, now eagerly takes on new challenges. As his confidence grows, he moves on to the next challenge with excitement. His parents, Laura and Eddie, credit the high energy, positive environment of “USA Martial Arts Phoenix.”

Michael has become more cheerful and helpful around the house. He enjoys family activities…just like he used to when he was younger. His mother, Barbara, reports that he is now a joy to be around.

Mom was delighted when, after the neighborhood BBQ, Mrs. Swift from down the block said, “Your son Joshua is such a well mannered young boy!”

Carol said, “Mom, the kids were saying mean things to me at school today.” Mom thinks, “Oh no, here we go again.” — and says, “Well, how did you handle it?” Mom breathes a sigh of relief when Carol says, “It’s no big deal. Their words can’t hurt me. I learned that in Martial Arts class!”

Timmy, formerly quite a slob, now seems to be taking pride in his appearance. Without being asked, somehow his hair is combed, his shirt is clean, his teeth are brushed. And, not always, but at least occasionally, his bedroom seems to be picked up and clean! Just as Timmy is proud of his Karate accomplishments, he also seems to take pride in other aspects of his life!

Introducing the USA Martial Arts Phoenix Ten Point Success System

1. Positive Role Models: The biggest asset of “USA Martial Arts Phoenix?” Easy. The teachers. Now, I’ll tell you up front. They are not like the teachers you’ve seen in the Martial Art movies. Are they “tough guys?” Yes. But what you will notice (and so will your child)…is that they are “Nice Guys.” They have been hand selected…not just because they are great Martial Artists. They have been chosen because they are wonderful people…and have a great love of helping others benefit from the Martial Arts! All of our teachers were once students at “USA Martial Arts Phoenix” themselves. They care about each student individually — and are totally committed to helping your child reach his or her potential.

2. Physical Fitness: It’s hard to feel good about yourself when you are out of shape physically…or when your athletic skills have not been fully developed. Our belief is that, regardless of how athletic somebody seems to be…there is an athlete inside all of us. When a student feels their physical skills skyrocket…it’s not long before their self-image follows suit!

3. A High Energy, Exciting Environment: Many kids have grown accustomed to virtual activities (video games, television, internet). Participating in an exciting, high energy environment, focused on an actual activity, will give your child a very real sense of achievement!

4. Regular Incentives for Effort and Achievement: The belt system of Martial Arts (your child will earn a new belt every three months: white, yellow, gold, orange, green, etc.), regular positive feedback and recognition of accomplishment, incentives for improvement, applause, smiles, and high-fives will systematically lead your child into the “Yes, I Can!” attitude you’ve always wanted for him or her.

5. The “Life Lesson of the Week”: Regular exposure, through our “Life Skills Lessons from Martial Arts Masters,” to systematic instruction, accompanied by exercises in the lessons of respect, discipline, focus, persistence, courage, discipline and confidence. (Most of the “USA Martial Arts Phoenix” parents name this as their favorite part of the program!)

6. A Proven System of Skill and Personal Development: No fancy theories or hard to understand concepts here. Our teachers are experts in teaching the actual SKILLS of listening and focus. Hint: We’ll be teaching these to your child in the very first week!

7. A Series of Positively Constructed Challenges that will build your child’s confidence. You will be delighted as you see your children confidently move outside their comfort zone. As the weeks go by, you will smile with pride as your son or daughter moves from challenge to challenge…their confidence soaring at each new accomplishment!

8. An Atmosphere of Respect: You watch with satisfaction as your children learn to give respect and to earn respect. Most importantly, they learn the essential lessons of Self-Respect!

9. Order and Structure: Even though the atmosphere is friendly and supportive, Karate is not “play time.” You will be delighted to see how your children develop focus and persistence in our orderly, structured environment.

10. A Friendship Based Environment: If you are expecting the old, harsh, authoritarian, military style Martial Art training…you are going to be sadly disappointed. When you visit us, you will find a friendly, supportive environment.

Some of the teachers and long time students have been friends for nearly 20 years. That atmosphere of friendship, support, and respect will give your
child the support he or she needs to succeed!

The Way Martial Arts Should Be Taught
Mixed Martial Arts Designed For Your Body, Goals and Safety

With the popularity of MMA events like the UFC, more an more people are interested in learning the skills of mixed martial arts. But not everyone wants to learn in an intimidating gym setting with all of its uncomfortable atmosphere and testosterone driven fighter attitudes.

Be a safe place to train and enjoy yourself, not worry about being embarrassed and getting injured. We place our emphasis on gaining wisdom, improving skills through better leverage, position and strategy. Much like chess, the win usually goes to the better strategist who can outwit his opponent and gain the advantage.

Self defense: You will learn one of the most acclaimed combat system in existence today.

Skill development: You will dramatically enhance your motor skills, coordination, reflexes, balance and agility, which will positively impact all your other activities.

Physical development: You will build strength, flexibility and an overall wellness only achieved through positive physical activity.

Self improvement: Confidence gained from setting and accomplishing goals. Self discipline, perseverance, and new found courage, achieved by conquering new challenges. You will defuse stress and acquire a powerful new focus. Therien Jiu-Jitsu will give you the edge.

If you are going to try martial arts once in your life, give yourself a memorable experience.

You will begin a journey of rich traditions, exhilarating skills, and most of all gratifying accomplishments. You will progress step by step through the most sophisticated martial arts training system available. From your white belt presentation, through thousands of combat techniques, hundreds of hours of physical development, deeply satisfying achievements, all the way to the day you receive your world renowned black belt, the USA Martial Arts experience is one that you won’t want to trade for anything else.

Dan “The Beast” Severn to teach Illinois Police and Security

February 1, 2010

Dan THE BEAST Severn UFC and WWE Champion

UFC Champion and wrestling legend Dan Severn will conduct Modern MMA “The Dangerzone: Defensive Tactics” (DT) training for law enforcement including Police, Security and those in protective services for two days in Antioch Illinois.

According to co-host and DT Instructor John Nottingham, “The objective is to familiarize law enforcement with the increasingly popular techniques that suspects may be using. It is imperative for officer survival and to offer effective arrest and control options that are functional even under stress. Protectors like security and law enforcement’s training and tactics need to evolve as criminal tactics do. ”

The Police training event is underwritten by Nottingham Sword & Shield Security and hosted at VanPatten’s USA Martial Arts of Antioch and provided free to officers and security professionals.

Nottingham continues, “I come from a military, martial arts and bodyguard background. We believe that more training means more options; in particular, not having to use lethal force like the firearm. That’s specifically why our training is infused with bodyguard diffusion and escort techniques for resistive suspects, stress and fear management, confidence building and stress inoculation. Proper use of force is taught at every level to avoid costly liability to the department and ultimately, taxpayers. Ultimately, our goal is to equip officers to be able to go home safe to their families.”
MMA, or MIXED MARTIAL ARTS like featured on popular Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) seminars will be open to the public for beginners to experienced individuals to learn directly from the UFC Champion. Dan is one of the few inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame with the likes of Randy Couture, Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Mark Coleman, and Chuck Liddell. Others may recognize him from his distinguished wrestling background including being an alternate to the Olympic Wrestling Team and a WWE Superstar. Contact USA Martial Arts for MMA seminar pricing.
