Self control and focus create positive results in all aspects of their lives. Their behavior and school work will improve. They will be more outgoing and make friends more easily. And most importantly, your child will learn how to make healthy lifestyle choices, to keep them physically fit for the rest of their lives.
Physical development is the foundation for all martial arts. This includes improving coordination, strength, endurance, reflexes, flexibility and technical skill. See RFLX Core Ten Fitness Principles.
Mental strength includes the ability to think under pressure and stress. To stay focused while solving complex problems. BJJ is like chess in this sense and is extremely useful in the development of mental strength. Mental development at RFLX also includes the cultivation of character which means a strong sense of personal responsibility and respect among children and adults who guide them.
Emotional Competence is the ability to control one’s emotional response to a given situation in an appropriate manner.
“At RFLX Training Center, we are aware that as instructors we are held to a higher standard and are called to demonstrate this on and off the mat. We accept this as coaches and leaders, in an effort to make ourselves and our students more competent individuals.”
Character Development is emphasized through a Code of Conduct and Ethics. This Code of Conduct and Ethics is what separates a martial art from a system designed only for fighting.

The kids have so much fun they forget that they are actually learning valuable skills. And the best part is that by the time you pick them up, they are blissfully exhausted from the healthy exercise and ready for a good night’s sleep!
Our training programs instill in your child unshakable confidence so they can overcome bullies without violence. In fact, as a result of the non-violent nature of the techniques, CNN, NBC, and Oprah have featured Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as one of the few effective counter-measures to bullying for children between the ages of 5 and 13.
We will teach your child to use verbal Respectful Assertiveness™ skills to counter bullies and leverage-based grappling self-defense techniques to control a bully and stay safe if physically threatened.
This is ESSENTIAL TRAINING for your child in today’s “Zero Tolerance” school environment.
