Will my child have the confidence to succeed in life?

Many parents ask themselves, "Will my child have the discipline, confidence, and self-esteem to succeed in life?" The truth as thousands of parents have discovered is a resounding YES!!! 
At USA Martial Arts we have seen literally hundreds of children transform their actions and attitudes with our time-tested character building karate program.
You might ask, "How can karate teach values?" It depends on what's being taught. Merely learning to kick, block, and punch builds karate skills, which are important, but long-lasting change requires life skills

Most Schools Claim to Build Character but can't tell you exactly how they'll do it
Here's Exactly how USA Martial Arts will bring out the best in your child? Here are just a few.

You'll find this in our many character building programs featured in our school. The USA Martial Arts  team can proudly say that we truly have a system in place to help your child become an even better child. Most schools cannot show you let alone explain to you exactly how they'll teach your child to succeed.


The USA Martial Arts team has been teaching children karate for over 25 years. In that, time we have developed some character building programs which are the foundation of the USA Martial Arts kids program.
Watch as your child begins to grow in all areas of his or her life. You'll see them become more confident, self-disciplined, respectful, focused, and empowered to handle whatever obstacles life puts in their way.
A little story
A few years ago, an 11-year-old brown belt student named Alan was sitting on a railing about 15 feet off the ground when a boy pushed him backward over the railing. Because Alan knew karate, he had the reflexes to rotate his body and land in a safe position.
His father was so grateful for all he had learned in karate. He said, "Without a doubt, I believe Alan would have been hurt very badly had he not had his karate training." Alan went on to earn his Junior Black Belt.
The truth is a child's biggest challenge does not come from neighborhood bullies it comes from battling his or her own doubts and fears. Karate is about learning to defeat those things that stand in the way of your child's success in life. Feelings such as:

  • I'm not good enough

  • I'm not smart enough

  • I'm not attractive enough

  • I can't do it

  • I'm afraid
Another Little Story
Michelle was a very shy 7-year old that did well in karate but didn't speak very much. One day her mother came in and told us in a very excited voice that Michelle did a karate demonstration at her class' show and tell.
I told her that I thought it was wonderful that she showed her classmates what she learned in class. Her mother knew that I didn't understand how big an event this was because she exclaimed, "Michelle has not spoken one word in class since the school year began! She's so shy she won't play sports or go to birthday parties unless I'm with her! She's a different kid than the one who started taking karate 2 months ago!"
I invite you to come and see for yourself how USA Martial Arts can positively influence your child's life. For additional information and to take advantage of our introductory offer, fill in the fields below and the school manager will respond to your inquiry right away.

Thank you,

Martial Arts Schools: How Do I Choose?

Martial Arts Schools: How Do I Choose?

Learn the Criteria For Selecting a Martial Arts School

There are myriad styles of martial arts, karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitsu, judo, aikido, tai chi chuan, and kendo, to name a few. Some have passed through the centuries, while others have been modified and are relatively new.
However, the style of martial arts should not be your primary criteria in selecting a martial arts school. Instead, you should consider what is emphasized in the martial arts program.
The Appropriate Martial Arts Emphasis for Children and Families
For children and families, martial arts instruction should primarily be focused on the personal-development aspects of martial arts – rather than the fighting aspects.
All of the martial arts develop self esteem, self confidence, focus and concentration, self discipline, physical fitness and self defense skills. An emphasis on these benefits of martial arts is what you should look for rather than seeking out a specific style of martial arts based on the techniques used for kicks, punches and/or throws.
You should also consider how the martial arts programs are taught. The practice of martial arts is largely about the development of self esteem so you want to find a martial arts program where the instructors emphasize the effort as well as the result.
Self esteem comes from having real successes in doing something you care about. For many children and adults, martial arts can be an important activity that helps build self esteem but only if the martial arts instructors acknowledge, recognize and reward the efforts of the martial arts student as well as their accomplishments and successes.
To summarize – the most important two criteria in selecting a martial arts school should the level of emphasis on personal development and an approach towards teaching that is focused on building self esteem.
To evaluate a school against these two criteria, you should discuss them with the martial arts instructor and observe a class, paying particular attention to what is emphasized and how classes are taught.
Other Criteria To Consider in Choosing a Martial Arts School
1. Curriculum
  • Is there a structured curriculum?
  • What are the opportunities for leadership? For competition?
2. Values
  • Many martial arts schools have a student creed that students must memorize. Does this creed agree with your personal values?
  • What is the school’s reputation in your community?
3. More Class Considerations
  • While watching a class, observe the interaction between students and instructors very carefully. The atmosphere should be formal and professional, but the students should be having fun as well. Evaluate if the students seem happy and motivated.
  • A good instructor can instruct 50 students with control and ease, but for an inexperienced instructor, 5 students might be too many.
4. Martial Arts Instructors
  • What kind of training do the instructors have? Just because the instructor has a black belt does not mean he or she is a good instructor.
  • The martial arts instructors at the school you select must be positive role models for the students and should be able to establish an immediate rapport with your child.
5. Martial Arts Facility and Safety Issues
The school should be welcoming and comfortable for both students and parents.
  • Is the facility clean?
  • Is there a large matted area where students can train?
  • Is there a viewing area for parents?
Selecting the right martial school will have a positive influence on your child’s development. We certainly hope you select USA Martial Arts Paradise Valley Scottsdale Phoenix.

Why Become a Student of USA Martial Arts Paradise Valley

Why Become a Student of USA Martial Arts Paradise Valley

A better working body - a sharper, more focused mind - a stronger sense of self confidence - more self discipline - the ability to physically defend yourself - who wouldn't want these things for themselves?
Practicing martial arts at USA  USA Martial Arts in Phoenix, AZ is about physical fitness, character development (self esteem, self confidence, focus and concentration, self discipline) and self defense - not just kicking and punching.
People often think that martial arts is about fighting but that's not what we emphasize at Phoenix PV Martial Arts. Instead, we focus on the personal development aspects of martial arts because that's why most people participate.
Almost half of the 6 million participants in martial arts are children ages 6-17, according to statistics from the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association.* And it's not unusual for the whole family to get involved; one-third of the students are women, many of them moms.
No matter what discipline of martial arts you choose, whether it is karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitsu, judo, aikido tai chi, kendo or another one of the many forms of martial arts, the styles may differ but the benefits remain the same.
Universal Benefits of Martial Arts
For a list of specific benefits for various age groups, visit the adult and children's program pages on this site. But here are some universal benefits of martial arts:
Improved physical fitness: Make no mistake: Martial arts is a great workout! It is a total body workout - your stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength will all show signs of improvement.
Enhanced self esteem: By learning these skills and improving your physical condition, you become more comfortable in all situations - whether you're indanger or simply doing a task that takes you beyond your comfort zone. Kids have a new sense of self-confidence, making them virtually "bully proof."
Increased focus and concentration: From the very first day of class, students are challenged to think as much as they act. Learning the forms and movements reinforces working memory. That's why the Mayo Clinic specifically counts the marital arts of karate and taekwondo among the effective therapies for ADD and ADHD.
Increased social skills: Martial arts strongly emphasize self discipline and self control as a core component of its teachings. Self leadership and the ability to deal with others in a mature way is the result.
Stress relief: Kicking, punching and screaming are a great release, no matter what your age.
Respect for values: Honesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance and excellence are some curriculum areas of focus. These qualities help both children and adults become great leaders.
Our mission at Scottsdale PV USA Martial Arts is building strong minds and bodies, and our students range in age from 4 to 84. Please take advantage of our Try Us Out offer and experience the many benefits of martial arts!

Paradise Valley MMA Karate for Kids Junior Achievers Program

Karate for Kids Junior Achievers Program

Martial Arts Begins and Ends With Respect

Our Karate for Kids Junior Leadership Program is based on the core values of Martial Arts training. "Martial Arts Begins and Ends With Respect." From this basic premise, we develop your child's awareness and skills in three primary areas: Respect, Discipline and Self Control. Our core curriculum includes hi-energy drills and skills designed to build and condition each child's attitude, behavior and overall character development. Our Black Belt Champions and Elite Leadership training helps children and young adults develop greater self-control and self-discipline in everything they do. Our training instills confidence through positive coaching, lot's of encouragement and a powerful mentoring relationship with role model leaders. We also teach valuable life skills that focus on Goal-Setting, positive attitude, relationship building, communication skills and leadership. We offer an exciting step-by-step coaching series to develop these critical personal development and hi-level achievement skills.

Practical Self-Defense & Safety Awareness

Safe kids make for happy parents. Kids tend to listen to people they like, trust and respect. Our highly trained teaching staff will share vital safety tips and teach your child practical self-defense. Most important is that your child understands some simple rules of safety. They will learn tips such as safety in numbers and learning to practice safe habits in their daily routine. Knowledge is power; we provide an explanation of common abduction lures and teach kids to be cautiously aware of their surroundings. No parent wants their child to live in fear, yet they want to know that their child is safe. We believe strongly in helping your child become confident and capable young adults who understand right from wrong and will know when to stand their ground and when to run-yell-tell. We also stress non-violent conflict resolution, how to avoid dangerous situations and practical techniques for getting away from a range of situations being cornered, being grabbed and being tackled to the ground. Our practical self-defense skills include karate, kickboxing and on the ground grappling defense. Your child will be trained when and when not to use their self defense skills, and our students have a clear understanding of being responsible for their actions and attitudes.

Champions are always Victors and never Victims...

Kids who learn to defend themselves usually will never have to. They have learned to walk with confidence and they are less apt to be a prime target for bullies and/or abductors. Studies prove that anyone who wants to harm a child or has ill intent is more likely to go for the weakest looking kid they can find. Kids that are aware and act in a more confident manner are the greatest deterrent to bullies and dangerous adults. Kids who train in the Martial Arts become more assertive and less aggressive. Just like Adults, if they have a healthy outlet for their energy, they will let go of stress and frustrations. Watch the level of energy our kids exert in a class and you'll understand why they sleep well at night. Kids with a high level of self-confidence are also better able to deal with negative peer pressure and "Say No" to dangerous situations and threatening adults.
I made the commitment to bring my son to USA Martial Arts because he was young and exhibiting problems with self-confidence, but I continued the commitment because of the young adults that were involved with this program. The young people who have studied Martial Arts under Master Nottingham have so much to offer the world. They know what it is to work for something and then obtain the goal. They have confidence in themselves, but more importantly, these young people have compassion for others, and are modest about their skills. They have the ability to face fears and overcome them and tend to become leaders in school and work. As parents, we work diligently to provide our children with the best education possible, but what USA Martial Arts offers is an education in life skills. For anyone considering martial arts for their children or themselves, I would challenge them to come view a class and pay attention to the kind of people involved with this program. These people continue to grow and succeed in martial arts and in life.  --JoAnne Ramirez, Mother of Steve and Devan, Mesa Arizona
Healthy, Wealthy, Happy & Fit...with a Fighting Spirit that will Never Quit!

Television, video games and fast foods present significant temptations and challenges to our young people today. We strive every day to deliver a program that builds a sense of balance for your child. Our Junior Leadership Program inspires kids with specific instruction on how to live healthier, how to exercise and how to build energy and a dynamic spirit. We want your child to be better prepared to face life's challenges and be successful in everything they do. Statistics tell us that 1/3 of all kids are obese and that fully 2/3 are overweight and at risk of preventable health challenges that could lead to early death. Most kids are less active than previous generations and spend too much time on the computer or playing video games. They barely even have a structured gym class in school. Combine the lack of activity with the ease of fast foods and the junk that kids can easily become addicted to, and it's easy to see why our nation is creating kids at risk. Our program will get your child in the best shape of their young lives. We'll increase their flexibility, strengthen and tone their muscles and give them greater endurance. All while they are having fun and learning valuable life skills that will carry over to becoming successful adults. Our instructors are experts at motivating kids and bringing out the best in them. We love to team up with families to instill a non-quitting spirit in kids and help them become Black Belt Champions in life.

Habits we Train...are Habits we Gain!
We take our job as Instructors and success coaches very seriously. We know that we can make a difference and we have been developing innovative and successful systems for over 30 years. All of our USA Black Belt Champion classes are taught in a safe, fun, upbeat and energizing environment. Your child is developing habits everyday; anything they do over and over again is becoming habit. Good habits are easy to live with, however, they can be tough to develop on your own. Most people need a coach and that's where we come in. Unfortunately, bad habits are easy to develop and are very tough to live with. Our teaching style is based on positive coaching, goal setting and lot's of encouragement. We never give up on kids; we always team up and we have plenty of success stories to keep us committed to instilling habits of excellence in the lives of children. The vast majority of our Junior Black Belt Leaders are high-academic achievers, great kids and highly athletic. The majority don't start that way, with time, training and teamwork, we have seen thousands of kids become highly successful in every aspect of their life.

How do you get your child started?

It's easy to start. We start by scheduling a FREE LESSON for your child with one of our highly trained and Nationally Certified Instructors. We require a parent or legal guardian to be present so that we can get to know you and your child better. At the same time, we will give you a tour of our training facility (called a Dojo), educate you about our school, our staff and the programs we offer. You will have the chance to see if our program is right for you and your family. There is no cost or obligation for the evaluation lesson. Our tuition rates are reasonable, competitive and affordable. Call the Paradise Valley USA Martial Arts location right away and we'll show you how we can make a difference in the life of your child.
