Phoenix School teaches “Braining” over “Brawling” for Self Defense.
For Immediate Release
Contact Mark Mayes at 602-896-8721

Phoenix Bodyguard & Martial Arts Schools teach “Braining” over “Brawling” for Self Defense.

“Brain power is the key to neutralizing threats in this day and age.” Says head instructor John Nottingham of USA Martial Arts in Phoenix.
Especially when someone can actually be sued just for defending him or herself…”Security Wise / Street Wise personal protection” is proven to be the better alternative.
“This is the kind of protection training that security and law enforcement are moving toward…but it’s especially user-friendly to the average person who doesn’t have any kind of self-defense background.” Says Nottingham. Security Wise/Street Wise Personal Protection can be learned within a very short amount of time.
Nottingham should know because he owns a Security Company and trains bodyguards, law enforcement and military.
These classes will be held at USA Martial Arts Phoenix this Friday evening from 5p-9p, and Saturday afternoon from 12n-4p. Please call Mark Mayes for more information. Telephone: (602)896-8721.

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!

Phoenix Children Learn Life Skills Through Martial Arts

Awarded BEST OF PHOENIX 2010


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.

Phoenix Black Belts Help Stalled Motorist

October 23, 2010

Leading by example with Black Belt courtesy, members of USA Martial Arts Phoenix interrupt their Black Belt test to help a stalled motorist at Greenway and Tatum

Wear Your Belts In Your Heart, Not Just Around Your Waist

This is a common mantra I issue to my students. At the conclusion of nearly every belt rank promotion students hear me remind them to wear their belts in their heart – not just around their waists. Note the Black Belt testers wearing a white belt – a symbolic gesture demonstrating a new beginning and the importance of being modest and earning one’s rank daily.

Leading By Example
My goal is to remind them the importance of leading by example and being positive role models to others. From random acts of courtesy, kindness and compassion, more is expected of USA Martial Arts students than other sports or activities. That’s because we teach martial arts as a way of life.

Might for Right -Grand Master Jhoon Rhee

Phoenix Do Gooders
On Wednesday, we were running over to a local park as part of our week-long Black Belt test when we spotted a stalled motorist holding up traffic. Before I could even get the words out of my mouth, several of the Black Belts (Instructors) were ready to jump out there and lend a hand. They helped push the car to safety (once they got the guy to take his foot off the brake).

No Excuses – No Quit
After pushing the car, they completed the 2 mile run to the park only to then begin a grueling Black Belt test that required them to do push ups, sit ups, kicks and another 2-3 mile run. It was a proud display of perseverance and indomitable spirit.

Service Above Self
Our students are each required to perform a community service to earn Black Belt as well. It gives them a sense of responsibility and connection to community – to serve a cause greater than themselves. It’s powerful and they will always remember it. It’s also a reminder that Martial Arts is more than just kicks and punches and that the philosophical lessons are integral to the martial Way.

The Choice To Do Good
It makes me proud to work with such good hearted people. Sure, they could have just kept running by the stalled motorist, but they didn’t. What an awesome job I have leading and teaching the martial arts here in Phoenix. It was good to see the children at the test get to witness their martial arts older brothers jump out there and lend a helping hand. I hope it makes a lasting impression.
