If there’s one person in the United States that’s synonymous with world class Kickboxing Coaching, Instruction and Promotion, it’s Duke Roufus.
Since the age of 4, Duke has been honing his skill at becoming the best Martial Artist he could be, winning many titles along the way, including 4 World Kickboxing Championships. Duke even sports a 2-0 professional Boxing record on his already impressive combat sports resume.
Coming from a family of legendary martial artists, Duke Roufus has repeatedly brought honor, fame and respect to a combat sports lineage that dates back to the early 1970’s. Always evolving, Duke has become one of the world’s most respected and sought after striking coaches in the game today.
The Roufusport Kickboxing Association allows you to bring Duke’s global knowledge, highly sought after curriculum, and proven training style to your school’s mat almost immediately. Tap directly into the mind of Master Duke Roufus by becoming a Roufusport Kickboxing Association affiliate today.
Roufusport Kickboxing Association’s philosophy is simple and straightforward:
Duke Roufus wants you and your academy instructors to have the tools, instruction and ability to offer the world’s absolute best Kickboxing curriculum to your current and future students.
RKA class curriculum is based on keeping all students safe while progressing upward through the military based level system based on attendance.
As students learn and become more proficient both offensively, and most importantly, defensively, only then will they begin to learn how to spar. We refer to this as “step sparing” and it’s a great way to introduce your students to live sparring while keeping them safe.
While competition may be an option some of your students might pursue, the vast majority will be extremely content enjoying the many health related benefits the classes deliver, while at the same time, earning recognition and rank for personal achievement, developing a new community of friends and genuine passion for a new sport – all important components that lead to less churn and overall higher retention rates.
