<b>About Us</b>

About Us

We’re a Self Defence Academy based in Pelican Park, Cape Town, South Africa, offering Street Survival training to the public. Atemi Ryu means “School of Striking“. We present a unique Close-Quarters Combat system that is a collective form of martial arts. This 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 System is a progressive multiform of martial science integrated into one effective system.
