Dominion MMA Academy

Dominion Mixed Martial Arts Academy in San Antonio, Texas opened in 2011, and specializes in teaching Marcello C. Monteiro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Kodokan Judo, Russian Sport and Combat Sambo, Rocky Ramon Boxing, and Gokor Chivichyan Hayastan Grappling. The Academy works on a simple concept, which allows students to learn without paying monthly fees - they just pay for the lessons they want, when they want. This relaxed and stress-free fee paying method makes Dominion MMA a great client for LoyalBlocks - flexible, smart, thoughtful, and of course on the look out for loyal customers.

Dominion MMA AcademyLessons to Learn

We spoke with Reynaldo Rodriguez, the owner of Dominion MMA about what martial arts have taught him over the 37 years that he has been studying them. He gave us an impressive list of things that he has learnt: courtesy and respect to himself and others; knowing his limitations and those of others; perseverance to never give up or quit; and self control in all situations. Reynaldo also told us that martial arts have helped give him an "indomitable Spirit to continue to fight until the end." These are incredibly important and impressive characteristics to be able to instill in young people. Reynaldo even has a special story and student who is close to his heart - David Berube, who has overcome the challenges of Down syndrome to train in Marcello C. Monteirro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. "David has a very positive and highly motivated attitude towards his training," said Reynaldo. "When I asked him how long he wanted to train, his response was 'forever and ever.' Now he attends class two hours a day for four days a week and would more than he could."1


"Loyalty means that a student/athlete is committed to learning martial arts at my academy for a lifetime," said Reynaldo. He believes that along with the other commitments people make, martial arts can instill such important lessons that the commitment is worthwhile. To reward loyal students Dominion MMA have set up a variety of perks for LoyalBlocks users, including a free lesson for new students (worth $20), and free one-on-one training sessions during slow hours. Reynaldo says he loves working with LoyalBlocks: "I love the fact that once you install the app it literally runs by itself, and that it checks a student automatically so at the end of the day I can see who trained at my academy. I also love the fact that it helps me market my school 24/7 and it gives potential new students an incentive to visit our academy."

We are looking forward to working with Reynaldo and his team, and hope he is learning as much from us as we are from him!
