If you have been to the gym, then you know the majority of people that join a gym do so with the best intentions.  But over time, their intentions succumb to busy schedules, a lack of motivation and boredom.  With little encouragement from a lack of progress, they are doomed to frustration.....and eventually, they quit altogether.

Let's break the cycle by giving you the progress you've been looking for.  In our private gym, we'll design a workout tailored to your individual needs and the physical changes you can see. 

Let our years of experience help you make REAL changes and get REAL results!

What Other Members Are Saying:

My six year old son has been attending Master Rifkins karate program for four months. I can't say enough how much I love this program. My son has had amazing improvement in strength, balance, focus, and his flexibility has surprised me completely. He use to fall over plenty, couldn't reach his he has his first stripe for kicking, which requires plenty of balance and he can practically do splits. My son loves showing off his skills to his family and friends.


JD Rifkin's gym in Columbia is as professional as it gets. My family and I have been involved in TKD for over twenty years with another organization. It was time to find a new gym and I joined Rifkin Professional after a private lesson with Master Rifkin. We are completely impressed. Rifkin is a complete martial artist with an exceptional skill-set. He is on the mats every day and teaches his own classes, beginner through advanced - he is an excellent instructor. Because of Rifkin's own athletic abilities and martial arts knowledge, this gym offers the "next-level" experience. You will be challenged regardless of your current skills. If you are looking for the first time as a beginning student or shopping around for a new gym, Rifkin is a great choice.
