BE STUNNED AS YOUR CHILD QUICKLY GAINS CONFIDEColumbiaE AND SELF-RESPECT

We all want the best for our children, but our world today has other intentions.

With all the violence on TV, “short attention span” programming, the challenges in our education system, and how busy our families are, where is your child going to be surrounded by POSITIVE, enthusiastic peers and towering role models?

Columbia parents tell us that our instructors become like “superheroes” to their children, providing them with the type of inspiration and direction they truly need to accomplish their goals, and live a clean, happy, healthy lifestyle.

Dear Friend,

If you’re like me, your deeply concerned at the level of violence and negativity in our society today.

All of us are inundated with thousands of messages every day, most of which are designed to scare us, or make us feel inadequate. Now multiply all those messages by 10, and you’ll have something close to what our children are exposed to every day!

That’s why Parents all over the Columbia area are so thrilled with what we do here at Rifkin Professional Karate Center!

Here, children are surrounded by towering role models, and an inspiring positive environment, where they are all striving to achieve energizing goals!

I’m sure you’ll be just as presently surprised as the hundreds of other local parents!

FAQ

Most frequently asked questions and answers

The great thing about our program is, the earlier you get started, the better your long term results!

We have children in our programs that started as early as 3 or 4 years old, but since children develop at different rates the best (and really ONLY) way to see if your child is ready for our program is to take advantage of one of our WEB SPECIALS and try it for yourself!

No. In fact, quite the opposite!

Children are exposed to HUGE amounts of simulated (and real) violence on video games, television, movies, the internet and other media outlets.

But in our (unique) program, we teach students real, practical, effective non-violent conflict resolution techniques and tactics that can defuse the situation before it escalates to violence. AND ALSO escape techniques and tactics that event ‘smaller’ people can use to move to safety if approached by a potentially dangerous situation.

Should your child be confronted with an aggressive situation that can’t be resolved peacefully, or escaped from, he or she will also then have the basic martial arts skills to defend themselves.

There are so many!

Martial arts students benefit from increased physical fitness and mental focus.

The focus on self-discipline, respect, self-confidence, and perseverance in the face of setbacks builds character in students young and old. Our students also join a community of people who share an interest in martial arts, improving their own way of life, and making a positive contribution in the community.

We know how busy your life is as a parent, so our program is designed so that students can make exciting progress by attending classes an average of twice a week.

Some students will want to attend more classes, and that’s great, we have options for that!

Really, the only way to know if our program is a good fit for you and/or your family is to try it for yourself!

We have some GREAT WEB SPECIALS, so you can try the program with no strings attached, and see with your own 2 eyes how the program will benefit you or your child.

One of the best parts of our program is that every student is treated as an individual, and will progress at their ow rate.

Each student’s progress isn’t measured against other students, but rather against their own previous performance!

So even students that aren’t as physically fit as the star quaterback on the football team, can have a wonderful experience in our program, and become stronger, fitter and more flexible.

Hands down, the staff is amazing! I've seen a noticeable (positive) difference in my child's self esteem since he's been enrolled at Rifkin Karate & he feels like he really belongs. I cannot thank Mr.Rifkin & his staff enough for having such a positive influence on him! I only wish I'd enrolled him sooner.

If you are in Columbia, MO area or closer and looking for martial arts for your kids (or yourself), you are looking at the very best & absolutely right place. The program is very high in quality. Master Rifkin delivers what he promises. He is very professional, fully committed and a good role model for the kids. Expectations are high and your kid will learn to work towards reaching a goal, be resilient and persistent. My son has been here for more than 2 years and loves it. I have been in the studio for pretty much every class (prior to COVID-19) and have seen the training and instructions, simply amazing. Once you are there, you’ll know the difference.

My twins have been seeing Master Rifkin for about 9 months now and the amount of confidence I have seen in them is staggering. If you're looking to add to your child's confidence and self defense at the same time, I HIGHLY recommend RPKC for this. Well worth it. My twins love going to karate every week.

Very professional while still being a very caring staff. Rifkin is an excellent instructor and our 11 year old daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her time here.

I dont often give 5 stars but this facility and its staff are truly there for the students always. Yes it's pricey compared to some others but the respect and results speak volumes about the owner and his ways, making the cost more than affordable.

My son is getting great instruction at Rifkin Karate Center. Once the COVID crisis hit, I wasn’t sure what would happen. Master Rifkin quickly put all classes online for easy to access, while the studio formulated a plan for return. I am so impressed with what they are doing. Online or in person classes so we each have options or backup plans. Temp checks, masks and hand sanitizer are used and a limited number of people are allowing in the building at a time. I feel that he is looking out to keep everyone safe and engaged at the same time.

During the COVID-19 stay at home order, our son is using the virtual, private lessons and they are beneficial both physically and emotionally. These lessons help him stay in shape, in practice and mentally connected to the discipline. They are helping him stay on track, and motivate him to practice every day. I highly recommend these virtual lessons.

Master Rifkin has been teaching my son for over two years now and this review is long overdue. I wouldn't consider taking him anywhere else. The growth I have seen has been amazing to watch and I attribute it to the skill that Master Rifkin has as an instructor. It is of utmost importance to him that his students get the best possible teaching that can be delivered to them, and it shows in his students. Lately, with the social distancing, he has gone to private lessons via zoom and my son has loved it. It has been the highlight of his week and allows for 1 on 1 instruction time ,maintaining the quality that is so important to Master Rifkin. I highly recommend the virtual training that he is offering right now

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
