Being a Black Belt is a state of mind in a person who possesses amazing metaphysical capabilities,

through the discipline of the art. It is something you become, as opposed to a fashion accessory you wear.

It is rather Intrinsic Character Strengths as well as a dedicated Way of Life.

In many ways pursuing and living as a Black Belt becomes more of a calling than a hobby,

recreational activity or a simple practice. It is a better way of life. It’s a Disciplined Life.


The Study of Martial Arts is more than an occupation,

or just one more chore in an already too complex and hectic life,

it truly becomes a more Pure Way of Life with greater Clarity and Purposeful Passion.

The Martial Artist living, “The Way of Black Belt” is not distinguished by male,

or female, young, or old, tall or small, nor the wearing of belt ranks or insignia.


Martial Arts Uniforms, Belt Ranks, Honors, Titles and Awards are indicators of achievement, proficiency,

responsibility, winning and time practicing the arts at a specific time or place.

Living as a Black Belt is an age old, timeless practice that needs no such objects, “THE WAY” is internal.


The martial artist as a Black Belt is something greater than that indicated

in the physical realm or that of shapes and forms. A true Martial Artist is shaped by the countless hours

of sacrifice and perseverance for the pursuit of self-perfection as well as engaged in the service of others.


In the deepest depths of our innermost self, the training, the experience, friendships, accomplishments,

victories, losses, the learning and the teachings of the

qualities of Black Belt Excellence is emblazoned on the soul every true Black Belt.


This is your core foundation as a human being that no one person, thing or circumstance can ever deny you.

You know who you are and that you are unlimited, you have the impregnable rock solid foundation of a Black Belt.

One of the most transitional points of self awareness is when the Martial Artist

puts on their hard earned and prized Black Belt for first time and can proudly announce:

“ I AM A BLACK BELT!”

“Great Experience” Tuesday, May 22, 2012
Kevin Sullivan’s Black Belt School’s of America has been a great experience for my son. 

My son had very low confidence after a teacher
 told him he would always struggle in school so he believed it. 
He didn’t think he was good at anything.

 Since joining your school what a change I have seen.
 He went from being the quiet shy kid with 
no confidence to a more confident outgoing young man. 
He would struggle in math and we would sit for hours
 as he had such a negative attitude about it. 
Now it comes easier after learning to concentrate and to have a better attitude. 

He has jumped a full grade and is now meeting grade level expectations. 
He participates in school activities something he would not do before.

 I like that respect for others along with self discipline, 
self worth and teamwork are a major part of the program. 
Grandmaster teaches self defense but most of all 
he teaches them to respect family, friends and our country. 

He teaches them to be productive citizens
 in the community and to not be followers. 
He also teaches them to listen and focus 
something my son had trouble with. 
I definitely see a change in this area. 

He is more focused in school and it shows in his work. 
I like that in order for them to graduate to the 
next belt academics need to be in order as well as home life.
 This makes the kids try harder because they want to move up. 

Grandmaster, I would like to thank you for all that you’ve done for my family. 

I have a more confident son who is doing much better in school. 
You teach these kids to push hard for what they 
want and to not give up because something is hard. 

You run a great program and I recommend it to everyone. 

Keep up the good work and remember YOU ROCK!!

“Worth it!”  Wednesday, July 27, 2011
My kids have been with Kevin for over 4 years now.
 My son used to have a problem with confidence and it affected everything in his life.

 Since being with Kevin, my son's attitude toward life has changed.
 He looks you in the eye when you are speaking and responds with respect. 

His school work comes much easier to him because his focus is concentrated instead of erratic. 

My daughter had a problem with being very talkative during school which used to get her into trouble.
 Knowing when to speak and when to listen is what she learned with Kevin. 

Both of my kids get their needs fulfilled at his school and that's what matters most to me. 

As for the negative reviews i have read on here......I can tell you that I have personally watched parents argue with Kevin because he said/did something to their child that they didn't like. In each of these cases, I witnessed everything and can tell you that some parents need to stop babying their children.
 You can't get mad if he makes your kid do extra pushups because he wasn't doing what he was supposed to.
 If you want your kids to learn, then you need to let them and not get in the way. 
At times, he can be seen as to harsh, but that's just a good life lesson. 

There will always be people that you disagree with in your life, but you can't just up and quit when things get tough.
 I guess that some parents still haven't learned that lesson themselves.

 
As for the comments about him just wanting your money......not true. 
Originally, my son was enrolled, not my daughter. 

When my husband was laid off, he allowed my daughter to join the class for free.
He cares about their fitness and their future.

“"Instrumental and effective!"” Tuesday, February 22, 2011
My children have been attending Kevin Sullivan's school of Black Belt Excellence
 for some time now and I feel compelled to write a review. 
I've never sat down to do such a thing, 
but I am so moved and so impressed with my children's progress
 that I wanted to share it with as many parents as possible. 


I consider myself to be a good mother, I do the best I can with what I've got; 
but what I've been given are two hyper children 
who have an extremely difficult time listening and
 paying attention-this makes their school environment nearly impossible. 

They have both been a constant distraction 
to their teachers and fellow students...I didn't know where else to turn.

 I had heard that Karate had much to do with
 discipline and self control, but I needed to see for myself.

 I will begin by saying that the commitment first begins
 with the parents; it is time consuming,
 my children attend practice 2 to 3 nights per week,
 plus participate in belt tests, movie nights and additional activities. 

I decided to commit, and lead with the behavior
 that I wanted to see my children model. 

The first few weeks I was nervous and skeptical, 
my son could barely stand still, my daughter seemed confused but eager.

 We kept at it. A few months went by and I began 
to see a maturity that time alone could not have offered. 
My son was able to sit still longer, 
my daughter more determined and focused than ever. 

This "discipline", these skills, are now being carried into the school with them. 
The improvement I see at home, and the level of respect
 I am now seeing from my children is remarkable! 

Each month that goes by, they become stronger and better focused.

 The improvement I see in my children's lives 
as a result of this school and the teachings of 
Kevin Sullivan is beyond any price tag I could put to it. 

Mr. Sullivan is a remarkably patient man 
who truly learns each child's tolerances and skills; 
and then builds upon them.

 I'm so grateful for the development I've seen 
and would highly recommend this program to anyone.

I just started bringing my three children to Grandmaster Kevin Sullivans' Karate class. 

From the past few weeks I can already tell it was a great life enhancing decision I made for my children. 


I can see how it is going to help them grow into strong well rounded individuals. 
As my children train with Grandmaster Sullivan, I see how he not only teaches them karate; he makes them confident in themselves and helps them to find the internal strength to make the right decisions in life.

 Every class I have watched so far has incorporated important life skills such as; 
respect, teamwork, social skills, sportsmanship and many others in a fun environment for any age. 

Grandmaster Sullivan is great with the kids and the parents. 
After the first session with my children, he was able to see their strengths and weaknesses.
 He explained how karate with him as their Grandmaster would be beneficial in overcoming their fears and weaknesses. 
In a fun structured environment, he has not only proved what he said to be true, but left me speechless as I already see the effect it has made on them so far.

 For example, my two eldest are very shy and not easily motivated. 
Over the past few weeks I have seen them become excited to go to karate every Monday and Wednesday; 
they even were brave enough to do their kicks and punches in front of everyone with the support and cheering of their class and Grandmaster. 
My youngest has attention problems and we can't get him to sit still for anything. 
However; he will sit and be obedient throughout the entire class time. 
He has even started to be more attentive outside of karate as well.

 It really shows the effort Grandmaster Sullivan puts into his students and the level of care he has for each one of them.

 I'm extremely grateful for all Grandmaster Sullivan does for the kids.

 I believe he is a very positive role model and instructor for the children.

 I would recommend his class to anyone who has children and would like to see them become strong, responsible individuals.

“A Positive Role Model” Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Respect, pride in one's work and doing your best in all that you attempt 
were the main themes addressed in a very age appropriate and insightful manner
 in a talk by Mr. Sullivan at our school. 


He presents himself in a very professional manner and
 is a positive role model for the benefits of staying physically active.


Dear Grand Master, I am writing this letter as a testimonial as to how I feel about your karate school. 
My husband and I enrolled our girls last fall for Karate
 due to the fact we wanted the girls to participate in a activity 
where they would have fun but also teach them how to defend themselves. 

 Little did We understand that these classes would reinforce what we are teaching the girls at home. 
Respect, honor, humility, confidence and acceptance.

 My eldest is a very sensitive girl who with any constructive criticism would cry.
 In fact the first few classes she did.
 Now she is able to take criticism well and is able to turn it around into a positive experience.  

It is hard to find activities that don't expose our girls to negative things, 
give them complexes about their bodies, 
or make them think it is ok to move their bodies in an inappropriate manner. 

We are so happy the girls can work towards
achieving higher belts and higher standards in life. 

Thank you and we look forward 
to many more years of achievement. 

Sincerely, The Cordero's

“Good experience” Monday, May 21, 2012
A few years back, after a talk with Grandmaster Sullivan, 
we knew we had to sign up with his school.


 What attracted us the most was the schools philosophy;
 were good sportsmanship, leadership and character comes first. 

After the first year we started seeing improvements 
in our son’s self discipline, respect and academics.

 Kids learn good old fashioned values and karate skills 
in a fun and safe environment. 

They also learn how to deal with bullies and peer pressure. 
Again and again, GM Sullivan reminds the kids how important family is and
 how they can be good members of their family and society.

 He teaches how important education is and
 how to reach their full potential. 

Our son who was more of a follower, 
showed initiative and got on the student council this year.
 
Thanks to the karate school, he has more confidence and is showing more leadership skills. 

For us as parents, it is good to know that Grandmaster 
has our backs if we have an issue and nothing works.

 He knows how to work with kids and really enjoys his work. 

As a parent I have an opportunity to be an example 
for my son by taking the adult class. 

If I see a lack of motivation in my son,
 I need to say only one sentence: “I’m only one belt away from you”. 

Next thing you know he’s back in class and working hard:) 

On top of that, I get a great workout and learn self defense in fun, dynamic class.

“Great Experience” Monday, May 21, 2012
May 10, 2012

 To Whom It May Concern:
 We are the proud parents of a student at Kevin Sullivan’ Black Belt Karate School. 


Dominic expressed interest in karate school after an “awesome” birthday party
 for one of his friends. He had just turned 5 years old. 

This was a little more than a year ago. 

We could not be happier with the experience 
we have had with Grand Master Sullivan and his class.
 Within weeks Dominic’s coordination and athleticism had improved markedly. 

He routinely made “head high” kicks when,
 just weeks earlier when we first arrived; 
he had trouble kicking knee high. 

The improved coordination is evident now that he is playing T-Ball and 
is around other children in an athletic environment. 

Dominic has also shown improvement 
in the other areas that Grand Master Sullivan stresses in his class. 

Dominic’s focus, discipline and respect for family, 
God and country are all enhanced by his time in class. 

We are so satisfied with the classes we wanted to send
 our 4 year old Jacob to karate class. 

He had not been too keen on the idea until the night of Dominic’s belt test. 
Even at 4 years old we could tell he was impressed with the display 
put on that night by his brother and his class mates. 

That night he asked, “When do I start karate?” 
So now we are the proud parents of TWO students 
at Kevin Sullivan’s Black Belt Karate School. 

We highly recommend Mr. Sullivan and his school to anyone 
interested is having their children
 in a learning environment focused on both the body and the mind. 

Sincerely, Frank and Jennifer Guzzardi

“Excellent Experience”

Kevin Sullivan's Black Belt Schools of America has been 
an important part of a remarkable change in my daughter's life.


 She has gone from being a student who had problems focusing, 
so that the normal classroom environment was too distracting
 for her to learn to read and
 solve math problems to one who is meeting 
or exceeding grade level expectations in almost all areas of her schoolwork.

 A year ago, she did not want to be involved in any extracurricular activities
 (even though she showed high levels of ability in dance and gymnastics) 
because she did not want to perform in front of people. Shy. 

Now, not even a year later, she can't wait for 
parent viewing nights in her karate class,
 is a member of the student council, and is known
 in our neighborhood as "the Mayor", for her friendly ways. 

Of course, some of the change can be attributed to normal maturation, 
but the continuity and personalized attention she gets
 from Grandmaster Sullivan's program is unique and effective. 

Discipline and respect are carefully cultivated in Grandmaster's dojo, 
as much as fun and love of Karate. 

No two classes are ever the same, 
as one day the students might be running and doing calisthenics, or, 
the next class, they might focus on leadership skills.

 Every class my daughter has attended has offered her a good balance 
of karate technique and philosophy. 

From the very beginning, to this day, my daughter is so excited to attend karate class,
 her interest and determination has not waned a bit! 

The most important benefit we've recieved, 
though is the boost in my daughter's self confidence.

 If there's anything outside of karate class that is a challenge to her, 
all I have to do is remind her of her accomplishments
 in karate to remind her of what she can do. 

She cannot argue with the fact that she could only do a few push ups 
when she started karate, but can now do more 
than some of her older brother's friends. 

She also has experienced, first hand, 
how discipline and tenacity
have benefitted her in and out of the dojo.

“Great Experience” Thursday, June 11, 2009
Kevin runs a great school.
 Any parent considering karate for their kid(s) should seriously consider his school.


 During a tour, pay particular attention to the students 
that have been in the school for sometime.

 There is a great disparity between the "Park and Rec" kids and his core students. 

The core group are the true indication of 
Kevin's ability to motivation and instill excellence. 

The "Park and Rec" kids are mostly testing the waters 
and have not fully committed to Karate.

“We love this school!!!”  Wednesday, May 02, 2012
My husband and I are very proud parents of two children
 that attend Kevin Sullivan’s Black Belt School. 

When we first met Kevin we were so impressed 
with the importance he places on respect, family, country, and faith.


 At first we only enrolled our 5 year old son…
little did we know just by watching the classes 
our little 2 year old would also fall in love with the program. 

For months our son attended class and for months 
we were continually impressed 
with Kevin’s teaching style, and 
the results we were getting with our son. 
Our son was not only learning karate moves and 
self defense strategies but more importantly
 he was learning life lessons.

He was learning to respect and encourage others, 
he was learning to respect his elders and teachers, 
and the best part was that he was having a BLAST doing it. 

Kevin makes class a perfect blend of learning and fun. 
After a few months of watching my son,
 my 2 year old daughter who barely speaks
 in full sentences was found in her room reciting 
the full Kata that the students
 learned in class complete with kicks and punches. 

She would beg to go to Karate class with her brother and
 we finally enrolled her.
 She has also reaped all the benefits of class and
 has really found her strong, focused little self. 

We love that in order to test into a new belt category a student 
not only needs to be able to do Karate but must also prove 
that they are being a good family member, a good friend,
 and a good academic student.

Kevin’s students will leave his instruction as 
well rounded, respectful,
independent members of their families, 
schools, and ultimately society as a whole.

“So exciting!!!” Friday, June 01, 2012
I attend kickboxing classes with Kevin Sulivan and
 I am so incredibly excited and motivated!! 

Kickboxing is a phenomenal workout in a non-judgemental atmosphere.


 He plays upbeat music and 
provides continuous motivation in a positive way. 

The space and equipment at the studio is perfect. 

I have so much fun when I work out at Grandmaster Sullivan's studio, 
and the awesome feelings carry over into my everyday life.

I have also enrolled my son in Grandmaster Sullivan's karate classes and
 feel confident that these classes will help him build character,
 reinforce a respectful attitude and ultimately 
support the healthy lifestyle that every parent wants their child to practice. 

I would recommend Kevin Sullivan's classes to anyone 
who wants to work on their fitness and health
 in a fun and comfortable environment. 

I would recommend them to any parent that wants to support and 
encourage their children to live in a healthy way and
 view challenges with a positive attitude.


Thanks for taking the time to read a few of the opinions 
of Real Life Parents, that are valid.

Open Letter From Kevin Sullivan,

 I would like to thank all of the Parents, Students, Teachers, 
Doctors, Police Officers, Military Personnel, Veterans, 
Fellow Martial Artists, Colleges, Universities and others, 
that I have had the pleasure of providing training for.

I have learned a lot about life from them and 
I am eternally grateful for their rock solid support. 

I'm aware of some of the made up declarations about me 
that appear on the Internet and in reviews
posted by known persons as well as 
many anonymous unknown persons.

I've seen some of them. Some are funny. 
Some are pretty far out there. 

Some I would not dignify with a response.

 Being more a student of the Martial Arts and a positive lifestyle, 
than the wild, wild web-world of the Internet, 
I'm not quite sure what to make of it all. It's quite surprising.

 I do know that boys will be boys and you can’t please everyone.

 I neither take offense nor do I take these things too seriously. 

Who knows, maybe these made up declarations will lead people
 to seek out the real facts, as found in my recently 
updated website’s Testimonial Recommendation Letters,
 Awards, Citations, Thank You Letters, Championship Titles
 that I won in NASKA and KRANE 
Tournament Competitions as well as, the Photos. 

Meeting me in person is a great option and
 you can see the originals of any letters, awards or photos.
 I look forward to meeting anyone interested.

 I'm very proud of these accomplishments and 
the efforts of other people putting their name on the record 
and department’s with their endorsement of me, and my teachings.

I shall remain forever grateful to all of the wonderful people 
I have met and served throughout the years.

 I wish all my critics, real or imaginary all the best. 

I wish all of my supporters the absolute best as well as 
my humble gratitude for allowing me into your lives and
 to of been privileged to have served you. 

I have only good intentions for all. 
Good- bye for now, 
God Bless and all the Best! 

Kevin Sullivan

Parents, please be sure to watch all of your child’s classes

We will be giving your child several fun and easy

This will give you an opportunity to have some of that

The Founding of AUUSOMA

During the many years of study of the Martial Arts, 
Grandmaster Sullivan has been fortunate to have worked 
with and studied directly with many Grandmasters, 
Tenth Degree Black Belts, Founders of Martial Arts systems,
 World Champions and dedicated, respectable Martial Arts Masters. 
We would like to share with you some knowledge of these
 Martial Artists and their systems. He has trained with many 
more than the few selected here for your reading, any omission
 of the more than twenty-five other teachers he has had the privilege 
of learning from is meant as no offense as he respects all past teachers he has had.


Grandmaster Sullivan holds a Tenth Degree Black Belt Rank in Martial Arts.
It is the highest recognized Rank. His Rank is Certified by
Black Belt Schools International. Grandmaster Greg Silva.
World Champion Bill "SUPER FOOT" Wallace with whom 
Kevin has also Studied additionally Witnesses and 
Certifies Kevin's Tenth Degree
Rank with an Official Diploma in conjunction with 
Black Belt Schools of America International.

A Distinguished Legacy

Several of these distinguished leaders and pioneers of the 
Martial Arts field have included the late Edmund K. Parker. 
Sadly, Mr. Parker passed on without leaving an 
heir apparent to his system, including his own son Edmund JR.



Edmund K. Parker, founder of American Kenpo Karate. 

Mr. Parker had studied with the late 
Chinese Master William K.S. Chow and practiced Western Boxing.  
Mr. Parker eventually found it necessary to forge ahead and
 strike out on his own to improve upon his original system and 
create his very own, hoping I am sure, for the betterment 
of the Martial Arts.
 By becoming the founder of this new system, his very own, 
Mr. Parker also became the head of it and recognized

Meet Grandmaster Sullivan

World Champion, Tenth Degree Black Belt
 and Grandmaster Kevin Barry Sullivan
 founder of America’s Universal System of Martial Arts - AUUSOMA

Perpetual refinement and improvement of the Martial Arts and
 the individual Artist, should be the martial arts underlying philosophy.

 Grandmaster Sullivan has always enjoyed a good relationship 
with all of his past teachers and takes pride that he can call each and
 every one of them a friend to this day, with mutual good will and support for each other. 

Learning directly from all of these Masters and many others 
has been a fantastic journey in life with many lessons learned.

 One lesson is that none of us can use a technique to escape time or bad health.
 Having watched many of his teachers grow old and become disabled or die, 
falling from the statue of incredible physical prowess, has become a tremendous revelation. 

Grandmaster Sullivan has seen that no single style of Martial Arts includes
 all that is needed to fulfill what a Martial Artist needs to or can truly attain. 
Just as all the flowers of this earth need a mixture of pollen from many
 species and different types of plants and flowers, the Martial Arts 
also needs a mixture of styles to grow, survive and be complete. 
Teaching other systems that lack the intermixing attributes of other systems
  deprives students of what they are entitled to.  
Fragmentizing systems to teach only their best components without 
being the rightful head of that system would also deny students their 
rightful destiny to assume leadership of their own chosen system, 
should they decide, as many have to earn their Black Belt ranks
 with Grand Master Sullivan. This would leave no legacy to pass on 
to future generations as his teachers have done, or attempted to do.

Grandmaster Sullivan, therefore, on this day of April 6, 2000 has
 formally founded his own system integrating only the best of what
 other systems have to offer and by filling the gaps of what they are lacking. 

From this date forward Grandmaster Sullivan offers his hybrid, and 
more complete style to the public for their consideration. 
The World’s Best Black Belt Martial Arts System, “AUUSOMA”™, 
America’s Ultimate Universal System of Martial Arts™. Copyrighted.4/6/2000.

All styles of Martial Arts are good. America became a great nation
 by the melting together of all peoples from the entire world. 
The world of Martial Arts is no different and Grandmaster Sullivan 
chose to humbly make his contribution to the Martial Arts for the
 general well-being and good of all by taking the best of many 
great systems and integrating them as the system “AUUSOMA”. 

Those that study AUUSOMA respect all systems.

Karate Training for Children

Q. Why should my child take karate?

A. Proper Martial Arts training ensures that you are providing for your child’s future in a positive way. We take great children and make them better! How? Your child can expect to learn how to work hard and smart at their training. We encourage goal setting and attainment this formula consists of small classroom daily goals, then, weekly goals, School goals, Family goals and ultimately goals such as: Black Belt, Graduate School, Lifetime Goals, Accomplishments for Humanity and Legacy Goals.

Character Development is our School’s Goal while Martial Arts Training is the vehicle through which we can deliver the development. Outstanding Role Modeling of No Drugs, Respect for Authority, No Alcohol, Self- Discipline, Self-Confidence, we foster a positive, healthy atmosphere of trying your best, never quitting or giving in to defeat, having honor, loyalty to, God, Country, Family. You will see wonderful things happen for your child in a relatively short span of time and training!

Q. What if he/she has never done any form of sports before?

A. Many of our Kids in Karate have never excelled at sports upon coming to our school. You will find that after they have sufficient training however they branch out to take up sports with their new found Martial Arts Enhanced abilities of, speed, power, concentration, confidence, respect and courage. We cater to kids and the results will speak for themselves, your entire family will be proud of your child’s new abilities!!

Q. How are the kid’s classes constructed?

A. Children age’s three to five initially should go twice weekly. Some children excel going three times weekly others may suffer from burnout from three times per week. You need to evaluate your child with the school individually. Always remember attendance and attitude are the single most important ingredients to success for your children, be certain to attend all scheduled classes.

Q. How often can my child go?

A. Children age’s three to five initially should go twice weekly. Some children excel going three times weekly others may suffer from burnout from three times per week. You need to evaluate your child with the school individually. Always remember attendance and attitude are the single most important ingredients to success for your children, be certain to attend all scheduled classes.

Q. Won't my child turn into the playground bully?

A. Absolutely Not! 

    Martial Arts Develops Self-Confidence, which is the antidote to Bullying! Bullies, bully because they have no confidence and prey upon children that are lacking in confidence. We teach children to have self-confidence which is just like Shining Body Armor against taunting and Bullying from other children.

Q. Won't my child come home black and blue from fight practice?

A.    Your child’s safety is our primary concern in a physical activity like Martial Arts, while contact and the risk of injury is inherent in such an activity our training minimizes the chance for injury. Proper form and technique during training with the correct demeanor is essential. Each and every practitioner must be wearing all protective equipment: mouthpiece, groin, protector, head and face protector, chest, feet, shin, and hand protection. Only no-touch and light touch contact is allowed. No Full Contact. All of our classes are challenging while maintaining high degrees of fun and learning. Toughening up and developing strength need not be a reoccurring painful experience.                                          

Q. What are the long-term effects of AUUSOMA Martial Arts Training?

A. The Good News for current and future students is that at a Black Belt Schools of America we truly increase our children's later chances for success and happiness in life, but do you believe it?  Many of you have the personal experience that this is of course true, but now some of the latest, most exciting scientific research on child development has shown that the success of our Black Belt Schools of America methods is a now FACT. 

              The long term effects of a comparable and very similar teaching method/ life-skills training program used in a few select public school systems around the country is bringing hard, cold facts to bear on the question: Do We At Black Belt Schools of America Really Help Children? Now there is indisputable proof of what we have long known AUUSOMA Teaching methods, our Life-skills programs and our parental involvement programs in our Black Belt Schools of America undeniably works!

              The results of a long-term study were published for an outstanding child development program used for over fifteen years in 18 elementary schools in Seattle, Washington.  The results showed the following undeniable PROOF about the children who participated:  Significant reductions in antisocial behavior, improved academic skills, greater commitment to school, reduced levels of alienation and better bonding to positive peers, less misbehavior in school, and fewer incidents of drug use in school:  greater overall emotional and social health for these children as young adults.

              The Skills, Opportunities and Recognition (SOAR) program (or Seattle Social Development Project) used a few key areas of focus to ensure that young children grow up to be healthy adults.  First, they used a "Pro-socialization model” of building children's emotional, mental and social health- children were placed in school environments where their peer associations and friends were all positive ones.  At AUUSOMA we cultivate a winning, positive Black Belt attitude in all of our children, and we ensure that those children who are deficient in this important life-skill internalize goal-setting, perseverance, healthy confidence and positive, supportive interaction with their fellow students- in short, just like in the outstanding Seattle schools, we teach children to be winners and to hang around winners- from an early age!

          The second key area of focus in the Seattle Social Development Project was reinforcement by teachers whenever positive peer association was observed in the children, and positive reinforcement at home for positive social and academic performance with the "The Catch 'Em Being Good" program.

          Our teaching methods emphasize the powerful formula of Praise-Challenge-Praise; our children are always being positively reinforced not only for their performance in class, but for their attitude and performance at home and at school too!  And like the Seattle project, we also closely involve our parents in learning these effective reinforcement methods! 

We love to involve our families in the child's growth!

          

          The third area of focus was the bonding of the children to the positive environment of school and to the teachers.  Our AUUSOMA methods have long emphasized the importance of our teachers building strong relationships with every one of our children, and most importantly our children build a lifelong love of the martial arts and learning!

          In the final analysis, what we do at AUUSOMA and Black Belt Schools of America works!                        

For All AUUSOMA Students:

Set the Goal to be accepted as a student by earning your White Belt…your first step to Black Belt.



1. Be extra respectful to family members. “Yes Sir,” “Yes Ma’am,” “Doing it right the first time,” and “Displaying a truly great and positive attitude,” are Black Belt attitudes that you need to exhibit now.

2. Memorize your Student Creed # 1 -----Recite it with pride, power, intensity and conviction.

“I will develop myself in a positive manner, and avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth or physical health.”

3. Practice 100 times the lessons you learn in class, Blocks, Kicks, Punches, and the courage building. This is the start of good habits and proficiency.

4. For child students, both parents must watch starter classes. Students must do Steps 1,2, 3, and earn the privilege to test for white belt to be accepted.

5. Be sure to plan ahead to continue your program, pick the plan that suits you, or your family member, best. Then review it with Grandmaster Sullivan and you are on your way to your Black Belt. Approximately half way through your starter, trial, or basic course, plan to speak with staff and make your initial reservation for extending your studies. Call to schedule a private Class all classes are by appointment only.

6. If applicable, you may apply your starter tuition toward a regular course.



            All students must be accepted for enrollment to begin AUUSOMA training. Remember: What you earn is what you get.

Passion For Helping Children And Adults Is What Drives Karate Instructor’s Personal Commitment

Passion For Helping Children
And Adults Is What Drives 
Karate Instructor’s 
Personal Commitment

Meet World Champion, Tenth Degree Black Belt,
 Four Time Hall of Fame Inductee and Grandmaster 
Kevin Barry Sullivan founder of
 America’s Ultimate Universal System of Martial Arts - AUUSOMA

Having taught martial arts for the past 30 years, 
Grandmaster Sullivan has seen many changes in people and the industry. 
Perpetual refinement and improvement of the Martial Arts
 and the individual artist should be the goal of any martial arts underlying philosophy. Grandmaster Sullivan has always enjoyed an excellent relationship with all of his past teachers, many of whom are recognized as the greatest teachers in the world during the 20thcentury – all with mutual good will and support for each other. 
Many times Grandmaster Sullivan had the privilege 
to have studied with these greats in classes from 
morning to night one or in special private classes.

Working directly with all of these Grandmasters,
 Masters and other World Champions created a fantastic
 journey in life with many lessons learned. 

One of the most important lessons was that none of us
 can use a technique to escape “ Father Time” or bad health.
 Having watched many of his teachers grow old and 
become disabled or die, falling from the statue of
 incredible physical prowess, has become a tremendous
 revelation for Sullivan eventually leading him to the
 founding of America’s Ultimate Universal System of Martial Arts (AUUSOMA).

The fundamental principle of AUUSOMA is that there is
 no single style of Martial Arts that includes all that a 
Martial Artist needs to be fulfilled. 

Just as all the flowers of this earth need a mixture
 of pollen from many species and different types of plants, 
the Martial Arts also needs a mixture of styles to grow,
 survive and be complete. 

Teaching martial arts in a way that lacks the intermixing 
attributes of other systems deprives students of what they are entitled to.  
Also, fragmentizing systems to just teach only their best components
 without being the rightful head of that system would deny
 students their rightful destiny to assume a leadership role 
of their own chosen system, should they decide, as many have,
 to earn their Black Belt ranks with Grandmaster Sullivan. 
This would leave no legacy to pass on to future generations 
as his teachers have done, or attempted to do. 
Grandmaster Sullivan, formally founded the AUUSOMA 
system on April 6, 2000. It expertly integrates only the 
best of what other systems have to offer and fills in the
 gaps of what they are lacking making the AUUSOMA 
system a hybrid and more complete system.
 The World’s Best Black Belt Martial Arts System, “AUUSOMA”™, 
(America’s Ultimate Universal System of Martial Arts™) was Copyrighted in 4/6/2000.

All styles of Martial Arts are good. America became a great nation 
by the melting together of all peoples from the entire world.
 The world of Martial Arts is no different, and Grandmaster 
Sullivan choose to humbly make his contribution to the 
Martial Arts for the general well-being and good of all by
 taking the best of many great systems and integrating 
them as the system “AUUSOMA”.

Grandmaster Sullivan is most well known for his specialized
 ability at helping children to develop life skills and improve 
their character.  There are hundreds of documented cases
 demonstrating where students training in the AUUSOMA 
have achieved greatly enhanced scholastic success, have 
become class presidents, increased athletic performance 
in addition to civic and leadership success. 

Many parents find that their children have become much
more responsible family members with outstanding behavior 
as well as over achiever attitudes under his instruction.

 Also, area pediatricians, child specialists, counselors and 
psychologists refer families for Grandmaster Sullivan to
 help them through his teachings and programs. 

When asked, Grandmaster Sullivan would say that his 
background and current vision for the future is what 
most connects with the students.

 “I have taught Martial Arts for Thirty years and 
have been in business for Twenty-Six years,” states Sullivan.

 “During this time I have seen first hand many
 miraculous transformations in students who have
 followed my teachings and the AUUSOMA system.

 Grandmaster Sullivan hopes you and your family 
will be among thousands of people he has taught over the years.

 His passion and commitment in life and helping humanity 
through his teachings can be the perfect place to start.
 You may find now is the perfect time in your life to start
 on the path of fitness and self-improvement.

Safe, wholesome family fun at the School.

Self-discipline/Self-control Karate teaches children to have control over their bodies and actions.  We also include lessons about taking responsibility for their behavior.

Respect/Courtesy   We have structured our programs to include learning how to consider, and show proper regard for others. 

Confidence/Character BuildingAccomplished by assisting the children to achieve their goals. This also gives them ability to stand up to peer pressure and other intimidating situations.

Strength/Flexibility/Coordination The movements of karate help develop these skills, all of which are very important during the growing years.

ACCOMPLISHMENT   The awarding of the higher levels of Kenpo Karate belts gives the children the sense of achievement.

SPORTSMANSHIP/FAIR PLAY  Farmington Karate instruction also involves free-style competition (sport karate) in a controlled competitive situation.

SELF-DEFENSE   We are very careful to teach children to use common sense before self-defense and never be abusive or offensive.                                                  

FUN  Karate is good, clean fun for kids and a great way to burn off energy.
