Children’s Taekwondo Phoenix Gets Great Reviews From AZ Parents and Children

by USA Martial Arts Phoenix

If you are a Phoenix parent with children this blog article on martial arts for children in Phoenix is for you.

Is your child a Karate Kid?
Perhaps your thinkng about getting involved with martial arts. Does your child imitate Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee or Chuck Norris? Do they jump around like Jet Li after watching Ninja Turtles, Kung Fu Panda or Power Rangers?

Jet Li | Bruce Lee | Kung Fu Panda | Chuck Norris

Most martial artists say they became interested in martial arts training from watching martial arts on television and movies.

We would be honored to have you or your child as one of our students at USA Martial Arts Phoenix. But first you should get to know a little bit about us. We are a private martial arts school and that means we select who we work with.

Traditional Martial Arts Instruction with a Modern Approach
We have time tested and proven lessons handed down from generations of Masters, Grandmasters and champions. Parents consider us a great tool on helping your child learn to be his or her best.

How Do We Help Kids Be Their Best With Martial Arts Classes?
While lots of other childrens sports and activities are claiming to instill these things, we really do. It’s natural to be skeptical and we welcome your questions and the opportunity to prove that we really do positively impact the lives of our students. Click here to hear what other parents of children are saying about our Phoenix Children Martial Arts School.

Tang Soo Do | Taekwondo | Karate | Phoenix
First, we pass on time-tested traditional martial arts lessons such as discipline, modesty, integrity, good manners, focus and self control. This is an important part of our school culture because those lessons directly impact our students lives.

Second, we integrate personal development lessons to teach our students how to be leaders, rather than compliant followers doing whatever is necessary to fit in with peers. From character to citizenship, USA Martial Arts Children develop a strong mind as well as a strong body.

Our Martial Arts Black Belt Success System awards incentives along with Taekwondo belt rank and different colored Karate Uniforms to build enthusiasm for goals. We recognize that children today have shorter attention spans and this keeps children motivated.

Life and Character Lessons from Martial Arts Masters

Children's Martial Arts WEBSPECIAL

As you get to know us you’ll discover that we emphasize the development of each childs character.

o SELF ESTEEM – To stand tall for your values and be proud of who you are
o SELF CONTROL – To know when to use KARATE and when not to. Common sense before self defense.
o LEADERSHIP – To be strong on the inside and learn to project that to others.
o FOCUS – For better grades, faster learning and first time listening at home with parents
o PERSEVERANCE – Preventing a quitting attitude and fostering the will to stick with challenging goals and commitments
o CONFIDENCE – To adapt to change
o CITIZENSHIP – To respect the liberties we have and learn the patriotic values of America
o RESPECT – The value of treating others with dignity
o CONFLICT RESOLUTION – How to make and keep peace
o FITNESS – Life-long learning and healthy energetic living
o INTEGRITY – The importance of developing character rather than being one
o VIRTUE – reinforcing the noble family values parents teach at home
o TEAMWORK – Bringing out the best in everyone

These values are especially important at USA Martial Arts Phoenix in working with children and families — the premier focus of our martial art school in Phoenix, AZ.

How a Unique Martial Arts School in Phoenix Teaches Kids Success Skills

How a Unique Martial Arts School in Phoenix Arizona Teaches Children Success Skills

Here’s a Proven Way YOUR CHILD Can Be More Successful and Develop Bully Proof Self-Confidence While Having the Time of Their Life!

Self-Confidence arises from ‘success imprints’ that were acquired early in life through some kind of positive life-experience. It comes from within and is imprinted their through past successes….Those fortunate people who were told by some important role model or mentor that they were bright, hard workers, or destined for success had a message imprinted onto their psyche, and most of the time have lived to fulfill that prophesy…. Anyone who has successfully achieved something that was thought to be difficult or impossible has experienced a success imprint.”Dear Friend,

These words come from Dr. Gene Landrum’s book 8 Keys to Greatness. In this excellent book Dr. Landrum studied the lives of men and women who rose to the top of their fields. Men and women like: Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, Catherine the great, Frank Lloyd Write, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael Jordan. The book linked many common traits to each one of these great people, but that one paragraph stood out for me.

Do you see the significance of this paragraph? To me it means; Kids who experience success early in life can build on that success. How great is that to experience as much success as possible as early as possible so that it will be “imprinted” on your child’s mind.

You’d have to agree that when your child reaches their black belt the experience will make a significant success imprint on their minds. This imprint will stay with them forever. I’d have to say that’s what gives us professional martial-arts teachers the most satisfaction, it’s what makes the job so fulfilling!

The imprint on their minds will be that of accomplishment, perseverance, confidence, and self-esteem. They will at the very moment after getting their black belt tied around their waist feel that they have arrived! That’s the feeling they need to get a whole lot of when they are young. The world is a tough one and if we can make your child feel unstoppable then their going to take that feeling and have it imprinted on their minds forever. But that’s not it…

Over the years I’ve heard so many kids say that the day they reached black belt was the best day of their young lives. I could see how. And here’s what I’ve concluded; it’s so powerful because it doesn’t come easy. Reaching black belt shows a kid what they’re made of.

It doesn’t come quick. So many things come to fast these days, but reaching black belt is something that will take time and effort. Just like so many things that have value. And I think the main reason why a kid feels so darn good after reaching black belt is because at one time they may have not believed they could do it. Or someone else doubted they could do it. (Hopefully not a parent.) Remember this..

If you believe in them, they will believe in themselves. If they say to you “Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa I want to get my black belt!” What there saying is I have a dream, I have a goal, do you support me? And if you want to build their self-esteem even more you’d better say… “You can do it… let’s go for it…let’s set that goal!” How sweet it is when your child gets to taste that success! The day they reach black belt!

Dedicated to your child’s excellence,

John Nottingham, Master Instructor
Founder Bully Proof Vest Program

P.S. How we set the goal of Black Belt in our school is through the Black Belt Training Team or Mastery Training Team. The students and parents who set the goal are invariably the ones who reach it. And I can tell you from first hand experience, I was awarded my first Black Belt when I was a kid that it is a sweet experience that leaves a long lasting imprint of success in their minds. Every time I see a kid reach Black Belt I relive the experience and it is truly rewarding!

7 Reasons USA Martial Arts Phoenix is Great for Children

The benefits of training in a good martial arts school with a caring, qualified teacher are many. Here are seven reasons that USA Martial Arts Phoenix is GREAT for Children.

1. USA Martial Arts Phoenix is more than kicking and punching. From teamwork, social skills, and reinforcing strong values, the martial arts is a trusted and proven source for parents to raise great kids. USA Martial Arts Children learn goal setting, compassion, kindness, good manners, and strong social skills.

2. USA Martial Arts Phoenix instructors have unique experience and contagious enthusiasm. USA Martial Arts Phoenix has a positive atmosphere where a YES I CAN attitude is part of each class. The instructors have experience to share time-honored wisdom and lessons that apply directly to daily life.

3. Teaching kids to develop a healthy, active lifestyle is fundamental at USA Martial Arts Phoenix. This goes a long way to preventing excessive weight gain, illness and other modern living challenges. Plus the legendary strength training, coordination and flexibility make it perfect cross-training for getting the edge in other sports such as baseball, soccer, and football. Plus, at USA Martial Arts Phoenix, nobody sits on the bench because every student is the star player.

4. Children learn to focus their energy in a positive way at USA Martial Arts Phoenix. Kicking, punching, running, jumping and building coordination provide a positive outlet for active kids. That's why Martial Arts is the number one recommended program for ADD, and ADHD children by therapists and experts.

5. USA Martial Arts Phoenix instills in children an inner-strength that builds confidence and strong self-esteem. USA Martial Arts Phoenix children learn to stand up for their values and be the leaders of their peer group instead of the compliant followers trying to fit in and go with the group.

6. Children at USA Martial Arts Phoenix learn to be respectful and concentrate so that they are first time listeners at home, and faster learners at school. We believe that self-respect is the fruit of self-discipline and martial arts is legendary for instilling self discipline and self control. Teachers love USA Martial Arts Phoenix because strong academic performance is encouraged.

7. USA Martial Arts Phoenix teaches safety skills that give parents and children peace of mind. Children learn how to deal with bullying, stranger abductions, and practical self defense that really works for the street. The lessons teach common sense before self defense and emphasize non-violent resolutions to conflict. However, when push comes to shove, USA Martial Arts Phoenix students learn the skills to protect themselves when they have to.

Halloween Trick or Treat - Be Wise, Worry Less

Our friends at Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International has launched a One Million Safer Kids Campaign. Violence Against Young People — All Kinds and Too Much
The organization specializes in building awareness through education and interactive training.

After 22 years of providing safety education through Kidpower, we’ve seen again and again how a few simple skills can stop most attempts of bullying, abuse, kidnapping, and other violence. Violence Against Young People — All Kinds and Too Much

The organization has also issued an article for Halloween and keeping your kids safe.

Stay Aware: The Halloween “Trick” what will “Treat” you and your family to safety all year long

In the article they share some important safety tips that include avoiding the "illusion of safety". These are important lessons that we at USA Martial Arts Phoenix teach and advocate.

Safety does not take a holiday. Don’t let the relaxed atmosphere and distractions of holiday activities fool you into getting trapped by the Illusion of Safety. Stay aware of where your children are, whom they are with, and what they are doing.

We also want to remind you that this is a great teachable time for you and your children. All life is risk. While we must be vigilant at times like Halloween and trick or treating, we must remember that children are at greater risk from harm from people they know. It is those we refuse to suspect that are usually the ones we need most to suspect.

During this Halloween holiday with trick or treating, parents have the opportunity to help your child develop great safety skills by learning to trust their natural survival instincts, their intuition and make better choices. Remember that privacy and control are the setting for abuse. We recommend that you take them out trick-or-treating and show them how to build strong safety habits. Teach them how to talk to people, introduce themselves, recognize potentially dangerous situations, access help, get attention, and build confidence.

Teach Your Child Stranger Danger? Think Again.

Rather than instill in children a fear of strangers or ad worry to their lives, instead, teach them how to engage and assess people they meet. Instead of "don't talk to strangers", teach them how to talk to strangers and trust their safety habits and "Gift of Fear". These lessons can serve them for the rest of their lives. Then your child can live without worry, anxiety and can have confidence and power.

Take this time to build a relationship and open dialog where your child knows they can talk to you about safety subjects such as bullying, inapropriate touching, abductions, cyber crimes and the dangers that exist in our world. It can be as easy as integrating the lessons into every day life, much the same as you would teach them how to safely cross the street. It need not be alarmist or cause a child unwarranted fear, worry and stress.

Our recommendation is to monitor, role play and inspect what you expect from your child. Teach them to honor their true Gift of Fear (prompted by things from their environment, not from imagination or memory) and take action on it. This gives you the ability to help them along the way as a safety advocate and guide their steps to good self-defense habits.

Book recommendations:

Halloween Safety Tips

Consejos Para Halloween
(PDF File)

Halloween is an exciting time of year for kids, and to help ensure they have a safe holiday, here are some tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Feel free to excerpt these tips or use them in their entirety for any print or broadcast story, with acknowledgment of source.


  • Plan costumes that are bright and reflective. Make sure that shoes fit well and that costumes are short enough to prevent tripping, entanglement or contact with flame.
  • Consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and Trick-or-Treat bags for greater visibility.
  • Because masks can limit or block eyesight, consider non-toxic makeup and decorative hats as safer alternatives. Hats should fit properly to prevent them from sliding over eyes.
  • When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories look for and purchase those with a label clearly indicating they are flame resistant.
  • If a sword, cane, or stick is a part of your child's costume, make sure it is not sharp or too long. A child may be easily hurt by these accessories if he stumbles or trips.
  • Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts.
  • Do not use decorative contact lenses without an eye examination and a prescription from an eye care professional. While the packaging on decorative lenses will often make claims such as “one size fits all,” or “no need to see an eye specialist,” obtaining decorative contact lenses without a prescription is both dangerous and illegal. This can cause pain, inflammation, and serious eye disorders and infections, which may lead to permanent vision loss.
  • Teach children how to call 9-1-1 (or their local emergency number) if they have an emergency or become lost.


  • Small children should never carve pumpkins. Children can draw a face with markers. Then parents can do the cutting.
  • Consider using a flashlight or glow stick instead of a candle to light your pumpkin. If you do use a candle, a votive candle is safest.
  • Candlelit pumpkins should be placed on a sturdy table, away from curtains and other flammable objects, and should never be left unattended.


  • To keep homes safe for visiting trick-or-treaters, parents should remove from the porch and front yard anything a child could trip over such as garden hoses, toys, bikes and lawn decorations.
  • Parents should check outdoor lights and replace burned-out bulbs.
  • Wet leaves should be swept from sidewalks and steps.
  • Restrain pets so they do not inadvertently jump on or bite a trick-or-treater.


  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.
  • If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.
  • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.
  • Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or Treaters:
  • Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going.
  • Carry a cell phone for quick communication.
  • Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.
  • If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic.
  • Never cut across yards or use alleys.
  • Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom). Never cross between parked cars or out driveways.
  • Don't assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will!
  • Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.


  • A good meal prior to parties and trick-or-treating will discourage youngsters from filling up on Halloween treats.
  • Consider purchasing non-food treats for those who visit your home, such as coloring books or pens and pencils.
  • Wait until children are home to sort and check treats. Though tampering is rare, a responsible adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items.
  • Try to ration treats for the days following Halloween.

Five Tips To Stop Bullying for Kids

Hey Kids!
Do You Have Your Bully Proof Vest?

1. Show Your Inner-Strength. Be assertive in your thoughts, actions and body language, not aggressive or passive. Stand tall, strong and believe in yourself. Confidence, cleverness, and a sense of humor are powerful tools.

2. Be a hallway hero! Take a stand against bullying and stop it in it's tracks. You can be a hero to someone who needs your help. Be courageous enough to speak up, take a stand and get help.

3. Be a victor, not a victim. You are stronger than you think. Practice, role play, and get training. A good martial arts school is an awesome start. You are a unique creation with your own special gifts and abilities. You're worth protecting!

4. Surprise is the greatest technique of all. Do the unexpected like use humor, disappear, show confidence when then expect you to show fear. Don't get drawn into a conflict. Think like a Black Belt, "The battle avoided cannot be lost." Learn what makes you angry and take away the power of bullying.

5. Defend yourself when all else fails. Nobody has the right to hurt you and it's OK to protect yourself and stay safe.

Dear Phoenix Parent,

I don't think you're reading this letter by accident.

Let me introduce myself, my name is John Nottingham, Child Development Security Specialist
and Founder of USA Martial Arts Phoenix Best, a Children's Character Education Program. 

I teach children like yours how to maximize their physical and mental potential while learning the positive self protection skills that comes from a well rounded and scientific martial arts program

I’m also a 6th Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and a coach of National Champions and a founder of the Bully Proof Vest bullying prevention program in numerous school districts. I realize you don’t know actually know me, yet I’m writing because I wanted to give you this opportunity before it’s too late.

My staff and I have been teaching families and children like yours at our Phoenix Martial Arts centers for over twenty years.  We can boost your child’s level of confidence, focus and respect. So much so, they will become unstoppable!

Does this sound too good to be true? Well, with what we teach, not only will your child want to achieve these powerful qualities; we will guarantee that it will help him or her improve their young lives! They will gain a level of self confidence that will make them truly unstoppable.

In fact, we’ll be giving your child skills that will EMPOWER them to become a TOP PERFORMER.   Skills like Goal Setting, Self Control and Self Discipline.

You may think some kids are just born “high achievers”, but that’s not true!! Let me tell you, they’re not born that way, they’re made that way. Here’s how:

  • Healthy Respect for Self and Others. Your child will learn true respect starts with self respect. They will understand the habits needed to be a respectful person.
  • Improved Focus. Your child will develop powerful listening habits. Once they’ve learned what’s needed, they will have the skill to “zero in” on a given task, unaffected by distraction.
  • Fearless Self Confidence. Your child will have the courage to open any door life has to offer… all without fear! This could help them excel in sports they’ve never tried and might even help them to get that scholarship to Harvard.

Maybe your experience as a parent tells you it takes years to develop these wonderful assets. I sympathize with that thinking. It is my personal experience, from seeing thousands of children benefit from our award-winning approach that I truly believe you will find your child benefiting from our training right from the get-go, after the very first lesson!

Finally, USA Martial Arts Phoenix Best Training will teach your child to protect themselves, and not in the hard-core, violent way you see in the movies or on television. For example we teach:

  • Common-sense self-defense strategies on how to avoid dangerous people and situations
  • Conflict Resolution Techniques that allow your child to live and interact with others, in peace and harmony.
  • A simple, but often overlooked, skill that guarantees to stop your child from losing confidence. I’m talking about the most important factor that stops your child from being bullied… but get this: We’ll be teaching your child the anti-bullying skill in the very first of your child’s two lessons.


Your child – at ease and confident – making new friends easily – tackling challenges with confidence and excitement – eager and excited – to experience all that life has to offer.

Don’t take my word for it, here’s what some parents just like you have to say about USA Martial Arts Phoenix…

“The young people who have studied Martial Arts under Master Nottingham have so much to offer the world.”
~JoAnne Ramirez, Mother

“We must have visited every school in the area, and for us there was no comparison. USA Martial Arts is clearly the best.  USA Martial Arts is the best thing we've ever done for our sons.”
~Dr. Tim & Cathy Lukavsky

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

“Being a part of this organization improved Gaby’s discipline, self esteem and physical ability. She took on and developed leadership qualities, and has acquired an enormous amount of respect for herself and others.”
~Arturo Gonzalez, M.D. Pediatrician

“Brian has improved very much since starting the USA Martial Arts program. He now makes his bed, brushes his teeth, and goes to bed on time without complaining. He even helps out around the house. Yes Ma’am and Yes Sir are a new part of his vocabulary. Thank you very much!”
~Mr. & Mrs. Leggett

“This Kids Karate Program Transformed My Son’s Life!…”
“I’d like to know the percentage of Martial Arts schools that honestly and sincerely
teach virtue, code of honor 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. I passed six other martial arts schools because of the balanced emphasis on character and what I saw in the instructors.”-Ms. Karen Tucker,
Scottsdale/Fountain Hills

“Master Nottingham is an amazingly gifted teacher who cares for his student like no other instructor I have met. His skills are incredible and his martial arts knowledge is extremely deep. I would highly recommend training with Master John Nottingham. He is a Masters Master.”
-Anthony Miles

Since Daniel has been in your program, he has been a changed young man. He listens to his Mom and Dad, and he does his chores after asking him only once. He keeps his room in order, as well….He is a great student and was Student of The Month in September. He loves to come to Karate class and his mother and I still have a hard time getting used to being called Yes Sir and Yes Ma’am. We are very proud of him and we appreciate everything and everyone here who has touched his life for the positive.
-Mr. & Mrs. Mariotti, parents of Daniel

Nathen’s self-confidence has improved a great deal and he is overcoming his social fears. Just last weekend he climbed a wall over 60 feet tall on our family rock climbing day. He has never reached the top before. He was very proud but not boastful.
-Ms. Penny Medlock, mother of Nathen

USA Martial Arts Phoenix on a Mission

When I set out to open my own martial arts school when I was a teenager I had several goals in mind. Now, a quarter century and 10,000 students later, that mission hasn't changed... but my perspective certainly has.

My goal was to make a different kind of martial arts school. One with all of the life affirming benefits that I had experienced in my early years.

  • Self-Discipline
  • Self-Control
  • Self-Confidence
  • Self-Defense

But those were just the foundation. I wanted to build a school where people could come to transform themselves. A martial arts school where you could learn a tradition but not be bound by it. If you wanted to specialize in an art, style or aspect of the martial arts, as you advanced you could.

I wanted to bring in world class experts and martial arts champions. To expose students to winning thinking for a better lifestyle and an edge in life. It would be a place where the lessons would go far beyond the kicking and punching. USA Martial Arts would be a safe-haven for men, women and children. It would be a place where families could spend quality time together doing meaningful and healthy exercise.

I've seen lots of phases in the martial arts industry come and go. From the Kung Fu phase, Ninja phase, Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do, Taekwondo, and now MMA (Mixed Martial Arts as popularized by events such as the UFC and The Ultimate Fighter), they seem to shift every few years. It has been interesting to watch the amazing power that media has on public opinion.

While those things are exciting and I have studied and enjoyed most, they are not at the core of why I chose to devote my life to the teaching of martial arts and open USA Martial Arts. For me, it goes deeper - to the core of the individual. I see martial arts as a tool, a mechanism and vehicle for which we can positively influence the lives of students.

I have witness first hand the amazing improvements in confidence, social skills, improved grades, and more for children in martial arts. For adults in martial arts I have witnessed their body and mind transformations, losing weight, getting strong, earning promotions at work and even making positive new friends.

Ultimately, it is my most sincere wish that each student discover that they are a unique creation with his or her own special gifts and abilities. Through the earnest practice of martial arts they discover that they are far more powerful than they had ever imagined possible. In our school they can unleash their potential, find reservoirs of untapped strength that release joy and happiness.

To me, the study of martial arts has always been magical. It is a celebration of life that develops the mind, body and spirit in astounding ways that I have not seen in other activities, sports or hobbies. It changed my life and I know it can for you and many others. I hope you will consider trying it today, stopping by to see a class or meet some of our great students. We would love to have the opportunity to serve you.
