Blending modern MMA and Combatives with traditional Principles
Welcome to Gendai Ryu Martial Arts and Combatives. Gendai Ryu literally translates to "Modern System" which epitomises our approach and goals. We are first and foremost a street self defence system (like many Krav Maga and Modern Combative Systems) but strive to incorporate the developmental and ethical realities of more traditional and holistic martial arts systems such as Jujitsu and Ninjitsu. Due to the integrated and rounded approach to training, our system has often been described as the epitome of "Street Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)". We have a long history of constant refinement and improvement dating back to the late 1980s where the Gendai Ryu concept was initially refined by Master Vernon Rosenberg (click here for his summarised Bio) based on years of application in tactical policing and real life violent encounters. Master Rosenberg's most senior student Master Gavriel Schneider continued the evolution of the system and spent many years training in other styles and systems. Specifically Master Schneider has been a long time student of Grand Master Dennis Hanover the founder of Hisardut / Dennis Survival Jujitsu (DSJJ) and is proud to be graded a 6th Degree Black Belt in the system by GM Hanover himself (click here from more information about GM Hanover and his system).

What is our approach to Defensive Tactics and Self Defence?
The Gendai approach is demonstrated in our concept of Advanced Combat Training (A.C.T) which is one of the most street practical no-nonsense self defence systems available today. The system is the product of decades of evolution and refinement. It is one of the few Defensive Tactics Systems designed and based on PhD level scientific research. Our system has been battle tested by Military, Police, specialised security and private individuals hundreds of times over the last two decades and has been credited with saving lives on many occasions. The core basis for the system is founded on the following principal concepts:
