The Phoenix Way

Kid Class

The core curriculum for our kids program is to drive the principles of self-discipline, respect, teamwork, leadership, perseverance and a non-quit spirit. We use the format and mission of our Kyokushin Karate program to achieve this goal. A big aspect of the program is functional athletic training. This not only serves your child in their Martial Arts class but in all their sport programs. Our goal is to not only make your child physically strong but mentally as well. Many of our children excel and dominate in their school classes and sports programs because of the skill sets they develop from the class. We offer an award winning anti-bully and self- defense program for our children as well as providing a safe environment to nurture exceptional little fighters.

WHAT’S THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE YOUR CHILD?

CONFIDENCE!

Children’s Mixed Martial Arts & Kyokushin Karate:

Dear Parents,

My name is Anthony Codispoti, Owner and Head Instructor at The Phoenix Way.  Empowering children is my mission at The Phoenix Way.  I learned long ago that if I could instill confidence in my students they could accomplish ANYTHING!  I take this mission extraordinarily serious.  I offer you the opportunity to come in and see for yourself what I am doing first hand.

“I will increase your child’s confidence, self esteem, teach them to avoid peer pressure, increase their motor skills, teach them to defend themselves, how to handle bullies, teach them life skills that will last a lifetime and much, much more.”

Team Sports vs. Martial Arts… Which program has a greater lifetime impact on your child???

Did you know that Martial Arts is 10 times better than Team Sports in developing a child’s self esteem and confidence? Our program can and WILL help your child increase their confidence, self-esteem, discipline, while teaching them life skills that will last them a lifetime. (Let me explain why you MUST come see our program for yourself. It will be the best thing that you’ll ever do for your child.)

In our program you child will be able to progress at their very own pace. We understand that everyone learns differently. No matter if your child can only train once a week or everyday we have the program that will fit your needs.

Are you doing everything you can to…..

To arm your child to succeed in life?

To help them be the best they can be in school?

To develop their self-confidence?

To assist them in developing their unique potential?

To learn self discipline?

Most parents do everything they can to teach these things to their children. But after school many parents need some help. The 2-4 hours that kids spend after school before their parents get home are some of the most important hours in a child’s life.

“I will increase your child’s confidence, self esteem, teach them to avoid peer pressure, increase their motor skills, teach them to defend themselves, how to handle bullies, teach them life skills that will last a lifetime and much, much more.”

How Is Your Child Spending Their Time After School?

Lets look at this example: The average child spends 3-4 hours somewhere after school before their parents get home. A child that goes from 1st to 7th grade will spend 200 days a year in school- This doesn’t even include the 8 hours a day for the 2-3 months of summer vacation.

200 days x 3 hours = 600 hours a year a child spends doing what?

Some go to babysitters. Some go home to play with their friends doing whatever they want. Many just sit in front of the television. Others get into serious trouble. Not our students.

Let’s put this into perspective… Between the 1st and 7th grade a child spends on average 4200 hours doing basically nothing productive. This time is more valuable than you realize. In 4200 hours you could graduate from college, get your Masters Degree and your Ph.D. So why wouldn’t you let your child spend this valuable time learning skills that will last a lifetime?

When our kids get out of school, their parents know that their child is being trained in real Life Skills. With our busy 21st century schedules, it’s hard to find the time and the resources to really help them with these important life skills. You would think and expect that they would learn about perseverance, positive mental attitudes, self-discipline, and goal setting in school, but they really don’t.

Students who attend The Phoenix Way Martial Arts classes are a step up on others because we teach them about these important life skills and how to develop them to their fullest! Success traits that will pay off for the rest of their lives.

Our Program Can Change Your Childs Life!!!!

You’re probably wondering, how? How could one activity have such an impact on my child? Well, it’s incredible, but true. The martial arts, combining Karate, Jiu-Jitsu and Judo, is not only a sport that can be enjoyed throughout a lifetime, but can also improve your quality of life!

Our Martial Arts program incorporating Karate, Jiu-Jitsu and Judo will arm your child with a host of positive mental and physical skills that will help him in school, at home and in life.

Even if your child is involved in sports, it may not be enough. Recent studies show that programs like ours that focus on personal achievement are vastly more effective than team sports!

In our program, we don’t believe in just teaching children to punch and kick. We work to help build your child’s character.During classes, you’ll see your child’s energy, confidence, and spirit rise while he or she becomes strong and confident. We’re not just talking about physical strength–but the kind of strength it takes to resist peer pressure and other negative aspects of life.

You’ll see a new kind of discipline emerging . . . the kind that will positively affect all areas of his or her life. You’ll notice an increased respect for others, and most importantly, for herself. The result? A powerful mind/body connection that makes them unstoppable in life! Your child will learn to succeed!

Come Visit Us

I would like to invite you to stop by our facility and meet with me to get a free student-parent conference so we can see if our program is a good fit for you. I want to make sure we can meet your needs (I’m confident we can).

Please call me 732-383-8428 and schedule your free conference now, because these spots in our Martial Arts program don’t last very long. I’d hate for you and your child to miss out on being a part of this program because you wanted to wait.

There’s absolutely no obligation and this conference is completely free. All I’m asking is that you give me a call to schedule a good time for you to pop by so we can discuss your goals and what we can do for your child to ensure we meet your family’s needs.

If that sounds good to you, please give me a call at this number:

732-383-8428

When you call, ask for me, Anthony. I’ll be happy to hear from you!

Attended the FAST self defense class. Amazing!! The instructors and staff were so welcoming and friendly. What I loved was this has a hands on class. Which I personally think is the best way to learn. We went through different situations one might come up against and how to defuse first and then protect yourself should one need to. I left feeling empowered, and more confident in moving forward during a difficult period of my life. I thank Phoenix Way for that.

Amazing workshop! The instructors worked with the entire group in unison & individually. It’s safe to say we all walked out with a new sense of confidence. I’ll be attending the next one.

The Phoenix Way is a unique school for training in Karate and mixed martial arts. Shihan Anthony is a dedicated teacher who channels the strength, discipline and values of Kyokushin Karate into his students and the surrounding community. As a new student with some training in other styles, I am tremendously impressed with what is being delivered to students here. There is respect for the formality of traditional martial arts within the structure of The Phoenix Way. At the same time, there is a contemporary approach, integrating traditional kata with real world applications for self-defense. This standing, striking martial art has enormous power, cultivated from hard training and proper technique. The space is impeccably clean, organized, and fully equipped. The students here are dedicated, friendly, and very helpful to beginners. The kids here are shaped into strong leaders. Check this place out, it is the real deal!

Our boys 7 and 9, started at the Phoenix Way a few months ago. They both walk out of there with more confidence. They are excited to share what they learned. The mat chats are later discussed because they are eager to share what they talked about. It would be great to be able to watch them in person!I sent the message above with 4 stars but I have to make a change. Recently I noticed that every time our boys come back from class it is one of my favorite times. They come in, they want to practice what they learned. That leads them to playing other games and communication is clear and kind! They are not looking to go on screens but to continue hanging out and enjoying each others company. I truly believe it is a carryover from their time spent in class. It is a gift!

I have 3 boys (11, 9 & 7) and we have been at The Phoenix Way since 2018. I can honestly say they have learned so many skills beyond the martial arts training. It’s not just about the physical skills – they have learned a tremendous amount about mental health, respect for others, respect for themselves & social skills. Their confidence has grown, they are physical + mentally stronger because of the training and it transfers into other aspects of their lives. I’m so grateful we found Anthony and The Phoenix Way.

Phoenix karate is a great experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to get fit, train in martial arts, or build confidence in their abilities. I’ve been going to the Phoenix Way for 12 going on 13 years now and I wouldn’t give up that time for anything. The Phoenix community is incredibly welcoming and full of nice, well natured people. Shihan Codispoti and Omar are great teachers, always attentive and adept.

My children started training at Phoenix in 2019. Their abilities have developed tremendously over that time. What I find even more important is that the confidence they have gained has translated to other aspects of their lives. This includes academics and team sports. Shihan Codispoti and his team provide top notch instruction. What I have always admired about his program is that his students who started their training when they were my kids’ ages still come back to train even in their 20’s. I’ve always thought that this was a real testament to the relationships that Shihan Codispoti builds with his students. I can’t imagine my kids’ lives without Phoenix now. As a parent, if you’re looking for a fun, safe environment for your kids to learn a great skill and make friends, I highly recommend Phoenix. As for myself, I have always enjoyed being active; weightlifting, kettlebells, basketball, etc. When the pandemic shut everything down Shihan Codispoti invited me to train with him over Zoom. I took him up on the offer and have been training with him ever since. If you’re looking to challenge yourself physically while being with a great group of people then this a wonderful opportunity for you too.

When my dad signed me up for The Phoenix Way I was a bit nervous on how my first class would go. It ended up being great! The community and people there are so kind and welcoming and the instructors are amazing! And I met some new friends my age that I now normally talk with everyday even after class! I totally recommend joining The Phoenix Way. It’s filled with great people and a amazing community. Osu!

Our daughter Morgan started at Phoenix Way over a year ago. She has gained self confidence and pride. She is strong, proud and loves her Phoenix Family. Anthony is professional, talented and a wonderful coach. He is knowledgeable and always positive. The assistant coaches are just as amazing which speaks volumes for Anthony. I am so impressed with the positive change we have seen in our daughter!!

The Phoenix Way is an incredibly positive and safe martial arts school that I have been training at for 18 years. The camaraderie between training partners is superb, the technique and conditioning taught in each class is engaging and knowledgable, and the Phoenix community is welcoming and encouraging for each individual to rise above. Anthony Codispoti is legendary in the fight game and is disciplined in numerous styles. I highly recommend anyone that’s searching to learn a functional skill, become fit, and train with the best instructors to join The Phoenix Way!

The Phoenix Way has been amazing for our children. Both have gained so much but most of all confidence and inner strength. They have come to understand their limits are much higher than they ever thought. The Phoenix Way teaches martial arts for all levels and abilities this is a great place to train and a community to be part of.

I looked at several karate schools and picked The Phoenix Way simply because Sensei Anthony is a great role model for my son. He genuinely cares about the children and emphasizes important values such as confidence, focus and kindness. My son is learning karate and self defense and having a lot of fun in the process. Within minutes of meeting Sensei Anthony I knew I picked the right place for my 8 year old.It’s like being part of a small family that makes sure to cheer each person on as they gain new skills and further develop old ones. *HIGHLY RECOMMENDED* 🥋
