PHOENIX BLACK BELT ACADEMY

LEARN ABOUT OUR STYLE OF MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING

A BETTER WAY TO A BETTER YOU

About Our Art

Although people generally select a martial arts school for reasons other than the martial arts style taught at the school (e.g., reputation, location, character-development emphasis, family focus) it’s still good to have a general understanding of the styles of martial arts before beginning a search for the best school for you.

Our style of martial arts training is called Taekwondo, and Phoenix Academy is directly affiliated with the World Taekwondo Organization headquarters at the Kukkiwon in Seoul, South Korea. All our Black Belt students are awarded a numbered and registered Dan Certificate from World Taekwondo that is recognized worldwide.

To learn about Taekwondo in comparison to the other martial arts styles, you should read our free report, which provides an overview of all the main styles of martial arts. To access this report, just click on this link:

Phoenix Academy is a family friendly environment that promotes community, respect, discipline, camaraderie, fitness, and hard work.

In reading this report you’ll see that the style differences are primarily in the physical aspects of the art (e.g., more or less emphasis on kicking, punching and throwing).

We obviously believe that Taekwondo is the best of the martial arts relative to the physical aspects. But what makes Phoenix Black Belt Academy special is that our training goes far beyond the kick, the punch and the throw. We also place a strong emphasis on the personal development of our students.

While we are experts in teaching Taekwondo techniques, a large focus of our training is on developing the following personal attributes in our students: self confidence, focus, discipline, fitness, healthy weight and self-esteem.

The development of these personal attributes is inherent within all martial arts but, at Phoenix Black Belt Academy, we put a special emphasis on maximizing our student’s potential in all aspects of their life.

BENEFITS

WHY BECOME A STUDENT AT PHOENIX BLACK BELT ACADEMY?

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 Phoenix Black Belt Academy in Dubai, UAE 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 Dubai 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 — about one-third of the students are adults.

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 program pages on this site. 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 in danger 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.
