We are excited to feature one of the most exciting and innovative programs you and your child will ever experience in the area of Personal Responsibility Education. The program is called S.T.A.R. in the Martial Arts. STAR stands for Success Through Accepting Responsibility or Stop, Think, Act and Review.

As part of our never ending quest to improve our curriculum, we have chosen to implement the S.T.A.R. program because it is a perfect complement to our philosophy. S.T.A.R. provides an ongoing, systematic method of teaching the core values on which our program is based. We believe this to be an ongoing process and not something to be achieved in a month, or year, but rather over a lifetime of education and effort.

USA Martial Arts Phoenix S.T.A.R. is designed to teach a student to:
  • Accept the consequences of their actions.
  • Use the S.T.A.R. Stop, Think, Act, Review decision-making mode to solve problems and resolve conflicts.
  • Develop and improve self-confidence, self-esteem, and positive attitudes.
  • Set and Achieve realistic goals.
  • Accept that attendance at class, punctuality, and reliability, are part of being personally responsible.
S.T.A.R. was developed by the Jefferson Center for Education. The S.T.A.R. program was developed for the academic setting and is currently used by over 5,000 schools and 50,000 classrooms across the country. In total it has reached nearly 2 million students.

S.T.A.R. in the Martial Arts is a program focused on the systematic teaching of common values. These values include: honesty, respect, responsibility, integrity, courage, tolerance, justice, self-confidence, and politeness.
