Nearly three years ago a friend talked me into starting Kickboxing classes at USA Martial Arts in Phoenix. Then two years ago another friend talked me into starting the Martial Arts program (at the youthful age of 45). At that time I was a successful academic and professional in adequate physical condition, but thanks to the training and skillful challenges laid out by Master John Nottingham and his Instructors & Black Belts, I am now surpassing my previous levels of performance in those and many other areas of life. Most folks probably have not heard of him, for he is a truly humble man, simply walking the talk, modeling all that he teaches to his students, and pointing to the lessons he has learned from his wise teachers. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn from him and hope to do so for many years to come. That is my testimonial. So, you may ask as someone who is considering trying a Martial Art, IMPACT/Phoenix Krav Maga, or Kickboxing class, what does that mean to you? First of all I would say to you - come and play/work-out with us, and see if you don't enjoy the classes and culture at USA Martial Arts. That seems to me to be a simple decision. On the other hand, if you like it, you will face a greater challenge - whether you are looking for a fun program to get fit and become a Kickboxing member, or you are looking for personal protection training and become an IMPACT/Phoenix Krav Maga member, or you are looking for Martial Arts training and become a Martial Arts student, you will receive excellent skills and conditioning training (physical and mental), and opportunities to grow in ways you cannot yet imagine.
