“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,

“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.”
“…DOES HIS CHORES AFTER ASKING HIM ONLY ONCE.”
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
“…CONFIDENCE HAS IMPROVED-OVERCAME FEARS.”
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
Master Nottingham and the USA Martial Arts staff:
Thank you for all you do for your students and community. Our experience with USA Martial Arts: I’d like to start by saying that Gaby has always been a great kid. She expressed an interest in the martial arts around the age of six. When she was eight, we enrolled her in the trial program at USA Martial Arts, which was conveniently located within the same facility that Gaby’s twin sister took gymnastics.
Being a part of this organization improve Gaby’s discipline, her self esteem, her physical ability, she took on and developed leadership qualities, and has acquired an enormous amount of respect for herself and others.
She has since acquired her Black Belt at the tender age of eleven. She has always been a kind person, but within the Leadership Program at USA Martial Arts, Gaby has really been able to display her ability to empathize and mentor the younger students. Watching her succeed has stimulated both my wife and I to set and achieve fitness goals for ourselves.
In most cases, children learn from their parents, but in our case, we have learned about goal setting from Gaby. In closing, we feel as though Mr. Bravo, Master Nottingham and the whole USA Martial Arts family has more than delivered on all of their promises. We are a part of their family and we feel honored and blessed to say that they are a part of ours.
