Our Mission has always been to train the best, most capable martial artists possible. We are not a time-based school, but an ability-based school.
We pride ourselves on training for real results and real capabilities. This means awarding a student stripe or rank when the technique is demonstrated with form, fluidity and function....not from an arbitrary mark on a calendar. My name is JD Rifkin and I take great pride in the successes of my students. I began my martial arts journey 30 years ago and have never stoppped since. When we opened our first school in November of 2000, I made a commitment to our students and families to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness, while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives.
Our children's martial arts program creates leaders. We do this by teaching the same values you teach at home. Our adult program is second to none. From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at Rifkin Professional Karate Center. If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our program.
Imagine yourself or your child as a stronger, more confident individual in your best physical and mental shape. I want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offers and turn that vision into a reality. See you on the mat!
