Phoenix Children Learn Life Skills Through Martial Arts

Phoenix Children Learn Life Skills Through Martial Arts

How Phoenix and Scottsdale Children Are Getting The Edge In School and Life Through Martial Arts

A unique martial arts school in Phoenix Arizona is changing the way martial arts is taught and Phoenix parents are taking notice.

“We have a unique traditional heritage at USA Martial Arts that stems from a unique Korean Grand Master named Hwang Kee. He founded a system called Moo Duk Kwan or “Institute of Martial Virtue”. The emphasis on the system is to develop virtuous individuals and what Grand Master called “warrior scholars”. It is considered of paramount importance to develop the mind as well as the body so academics and character education are encouraged at USA Martial Arts. I believe that is why we get so much respect in the community and have so many scholarship recipients.”

Children’s Martial Arts at USA Martial Arts Phoenix

The children’s martial arts program at USA Martial Arts is perfect for your child! We have specially designed programs for children ages 5 and up. Children’s classes are separated by age and experience level in order to create an ideal learning environment for your child.

Positive Learning Environment

Our children’s classes are taught by caring professional martial arts instructors who are dedicated to making a positive difference in your child’s life through martial arts training. Each action packed class is filled with exciting drills and activities that will teach your child valuable life skills such as confidence, discipline, goal setting, and perseverance while learning martial arts.

Character First

We like to think of ourselves as a Personal Development Center that uses martial arts training to help our students achieve their full potential in life. Our goal is to use martial arts training to help our students develop essential life skills such as discipline, self-control, respect, integrity, perseverance, and goal setting skills in order to equip them for success in life.

Self Defense

The practical self-defense training that your child will receive is invaluable! Every child (and adult for that matter) should have the CONFIDENCE and KNOWLEDGE to defend themselves from verbal and physical assault. Self defense is a SKILL that anyone can learn with training and practice. While it is unlikely that a person will ever have to physically defend themselves, I would much rather be prepared than leave it up to chance. We spends thousands each year on various forms of insurance, shouldn’t we invest in our children’s safety?

Martial Arts

In addition practical self-defense training your child will also learn a unique blend of modern and traditional martial arts including artistic martial arts (forms and traditional skills) and sport martial arts (sparring and kickboxing skills). As your child progresses in their training their level of fitness will increase. In particular, most students see an increase in flexibility, strength, muscle tone, and cardiovascular fitness. Our curriculum is designed to challenge your child and encourage them to reach to new heights as they progress towards earning their Black Belt.

Frequently Asked Questions About USA Martial Arts Phoenix

October 24, 2010

Awarded BEST OF PHOENIX 2010


Frequently Asked Questions

I’m a beginner – are there special classes for me?
Yes indeed. As a beginning student, you’ll have your own special classes as part of our Discovery course. You’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of Taekwondo, while you also learn some of the basics of being a martial arts student. These are strictly “no-contact” classes – no-one is going to be punching or kicking you.

Am I allowed to watch my child in class?

Not just allowed, but positively encouraged. We have a viewing area set aside where you can sit and view your child’s class in comfort. Your positive involvement in your child’s study of Taekwondo is more important than you may realize. When you take an interest in Taekwondo class, you show your child that you truly value his or her efforts. By watching class, you give your child support, approval, and recognition for their achievements in karate – you give them the encouragement they need to thrive. So, while you’re not required to watch every minute of every class, please do stay and watch your child whenever possible.

How often should I attend classes?

If you’re one of our Taekwondo Tigers, (ages 4-7), please attend at least 1 class a week. If you’re a student in our Discovery courses, please attend class at least 2 times a week. You’re always welcome to come to class more often during the week if you are able.

Will I have to compete at Martial Arts Tournaments?

No, you’re not going to be required to compete at Martial Arts tournaments. Sport competition in karate simply isn’t a good fit for everyone, and you’re not going to be pushed into it. That said, if you are interested in competition, we do work together with other reputable local and regional schools to make quality tournaments available to our students. Sport competition in Taekwondo (or open martial arts) can be interesting, rewarding, and fun – while expanding and enriching your experience of the art. We have local, State, National and International champions and programs that can take students on a path toward their Olympic dreams.

About USA Martial Arts Phoenix Arizona

USA Martial Arts Black Belt Universities Family Self Defense Leadership and Character Training Schools are owned by John Nottingham. His first full-time training center opened in Mesa Arizona in 1992. It had been his goal to build a martial arts school that offered not only an effective self defense program for children and adults, but also a comprehensive program of personal growth and development. It would be the emphasis on teaching the life skills of leadership, integrity, goal setting, self discipline and academic excellence, to name a few, that would cause the community to respond. An Eagle Scout, former Airborne Army Reservist, and bodyguard, he is living his dream with a chain of successful affiliate USA Martial Arts schools and a gifted staff.

His Phoenix/Scottsdale/Paradise Valley Arizona training center, the most state of the art martial arts school in the area with members of all ages, relocated to its present facility on Tatum and Greenway in 2010 to acquire additional space to accommodate the school’s continued growth. The beautiful facility ranks among the top martial arts schools in the nation with a large training room and classroom, Olympic style rubber flooring, spacious lobby, pro shop, martial arts store, quiet homework area for children, and a coffee and snack bar. USA Martial Arts training facilities are among the best in the country. They are as beautiful as they are functional.

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.

USA Martial Arts North Phoenix, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Paradise Valley Arizona

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…

5 Reasons USA Martial Arts Transforms Lives

June 30, 2010

1. Outstanding role models
USA Martial Arts instructors are specially selected for their character, discipline and ability to teach. They lead by example. Although we have Martial Arts Champions as instructors, we believe that living a life of honor and integrity is even more important.

2. Honor culture
Our entire school culture is built on a foundation of honor. From the moment students walk through the school door they learn how to show and earn respect. This is apparent in how USA Martial Arts students treat others, to the courtesy they demonstrate outside the school in daily life.

3. Individual attention
USA Martial Arts instructors are some of the most caring and professional instructors you or your child will probably ever meet. They make a point to treat each person with individual respect. The instructors go the extra mile to find and develop the strengths of each student, increasing their confidence along with self defense skills.

4. Positive peer group
Students are far more likely to succeed at USA Martial Arts in work and life because they are a part of a unique fraternity of other students. They make positive friendships that enrich daily life, lead to opportunities and some have even met the love-of-their-life on our mat.

5. Black Belt Success System
The proven Black Belt Success System gives USA Martial Arts students an edge in achieving greater fitness because the training evolves, unlike a gym. Martial Arts also instills discipline and self control to achieve greater results. Not only that but the goal setting and rewards system means more students rise to the legendary Black Belt rank.

Success Stories and the Truth About USA Martial Arts

“I passed on six other schools to attend USA Martial Arts…”

“I’d like to know the percentage of Martial Arts schools that honestly and sincerely teach virtue, code of honor, etc. and back it up in the behavior of the staff and students. That’s why I chose USA Martial Arts when I was looking for a school to enroll my son back in January 2000. I passed six other Do Jang’s to drive to Scottsdale because of the balanced emphasis on character and what I saw in the instructors. There were certainly more choices closer to home, but I had seen abuses of martial arts by some students and questionable judgment by some instructors. I know a school is not entirely responsible for the behavior of it’s students outside of class, but there is some connection. USA Martial Arts DRILLS character. And they lead by EXAMPLE. Thank you for that!”

-Ms. Karen Tucker, Mother of Carson, Scottsdale/Fountain Hills
