We’re a Self Defence Academy based in Pelican Park, Cape Town, South Africa, offering Self Defence training to the public. Atemi Ryu means “School of Striking“. We present a unique self defence system that is a collective form of combat martial arts, called Atemi Ryu Ninjutsu, which means “Art of Perseverance”. This combat system has no regard for the safety and well-being of the attacker, therefore we have no sports applications at this school. We concentrate on teaching purely what works and has been proven to be effective. Our Self Defence Combat System is a progressive multiform of martial science integrated into one effective system.READ MORE
I’m chuffed about attending these classes. The classes have improved my confidence and self-esteem as to be able to defend myself physically. I’ve learned a lot regarding how I can improve my awareness when walking in public and guard against possible attackers. The tips have also been helpful: walking with my bag closer to a wall so it’s difficult for a thief to grab it etc. And of course I’m happy to be part of a group of women who shares the feeling of importance to defend ourselves and not leave it up to the guys to do so.
I thoroughly enjoyed the simple yet effective techniques that were taught in a practical easy to understand manner. The instructors are patient, well equipped and educated in their field of training. Thank you
Very happy with this Dojo! It is well run with a dedicated teacher and team who are committed to the kids and class, and they work hard to train and nurture their students in a proper manner. Will definitely recommend to anyone living in Pelikan Park and surrounding areas
The self defence course was done at the perfect time – in Women’s Month. The class was comfortable, insightful, loads and loads of fun and laughter was had and we learned valuable techniques. I’ve been accustomed to boxing and muaythai, but what we learned here gave me a new perspective – defence and not offense based combat. The techniques are surprisingly not strenuous, but quite effective. The instructors were good sports letting us practice the moves on them (and hence the laughter). I’m really glad to know that they are trying to make the classes a regular occurrence in the neighbourhood where all women are welcome and can be empowered. Overall, it was a great class with awesome instructors and participants.
Hi its very awsome and its very good to attend because u can learn alot how to protect yourself ladies a thumbs up .thank u to the teachers
As for myself, I have attended a quick course of selfdefence with the club and have learned alot in a short time. Things i did not know i was capable of doing. Technics that was thought to me has made me fearless an confident to face any challenge. I have a positive outlook on the world out there .The club is something i will recomend to any female out there, to become confident.Especialy for everything thats going on out there. I would like to continue class to make me more confident. Thankyou to the teachers. As for my two boys who attends Atemi Jutsi- SA ,I have seen a big diffrence in them as far as there interest is concerened. They had developed a sense of eagerness an ability to be confident in anything they do.Discipline has played a major role in there life, through this class.A sense of stability for them to stand up for themselves has made them stronger. I would like them to continue with the club as long as they can, to better themselves.
Karate…ninja.. Words normally accociated with action movies. Sadly this has become a reality. Crime , violence and gangsterism is guarenteed to be a headline each time you review the news. Unfortunately women have become an easy target, as we are normally percieced as vulnerable. I have unfortunately been a victime of crime where i had to fight to surive. Myself ,women alone against three grown men. Luckily i acted quickly and faught back ,keeping all valuable items but the fear inside of me was something iv never felt before. This class has given me the confidence to walk in public knowing i can protect myself if i am ever a victim of crime again. I have learnt many effective and easy to use techniques which guarantees my saftey. This class was awsome, very highly recommended. The coaches are great. Thanks to the team at Atemi Jutsu SA.
Absolutely love what I am learning in the self defence workshop
Good day to everyone who is part of the academy and those who are contemplating joining. I had a chance to sit in during one of the training sessions presented by the academy instructor, I was left with my mouth open as it was pitched at the level of my 8 year old daughter. She followed the instructions and enjoyed every aspect of the training. She is keen on the next session up until she has gained the confidence of being a full participant.
I would like to share my experience and my gratitude with all, I must say it’s been a bad time for all of us but through everything my kids are in the best hands possible I salute the instructors and what they’ve achieved within my kids!! I owe so much to them due to the fact that my son was a victim of bullying at school and it stopped the first week of his karate experience!! Lastly wanna say to all that play’s a part of my kids life and their journey I appreciate you all so much and what you doing for the kids you guys are really such a blessing to the kids keep it up 👊
