Stuntmasters Uses BMX To Teach Character

PHOENIX, Arizona -

If you ask John Parker, he might tell you that every problem in the world can be solved with a bike. However, he may be on to something when it comes to teaching kids about character. John Parker’s Stuntmasters and their BMX Impact Action Sports Motivational Assembly uses action sports and its appeal to children to teach kids about varying topics, to include everything from character development to bike safety and maintenance. The Arizona Department of Education Character Education department recently had the pleasure of seeing Stuntmasters in action at Cherokee Elementary School in Paradise Valley. John, along with Jonny Harnisch, performed for 45 minutes to a student body of about 250 students, who were engaged the entire time as John and Jonny taught them about character traits like caring, citizenship, and respect. This is truly a program that is on a “roll.” For more information about Stuntmasters, contact John Parker at (480) BMX-RAMP (269-7267) or e-mail at You can also visit their website at
