KRAV MAGA Gendai Ryu


Here at Brisbane Krav Maga, we teach a style of Krav Maga called Gendai Ryu. Gendai Ryu literally translates to ‘Modern System’ and is known among practitioners as Krav Maga on steroids. Our mission is to provide street practical self-defence and create a community of trust, encouragement and accountability. This special system of Krav Maga is designed to provide the ultimate form of street ready self-defence and includes skills from general Krav Maga as well as other combative systems and traditional martial arts such as Jujitsu and Ninjitsu, creating a more rounded and integrated approach to training. Dating from the late 1980s our system has decades of evolution and refinement and is one of the few defensive tactics systems designed and based on PhD level scientific research.

We have developed two integrated streams of development within our system so we can provide students with the best possible training, regardless of size, strength or fitness. Advanced combat training is our Krav Maga and combative stream, and is included in our advanced, military and police training classes. Advanced combat training is one of the most street practical and effective self-defence systems available today. This system has been tried and tested by military, police and specialised security hundreds of times and has been credited to saving lives on many occasions. Students learn how to defend against unarmed and armed attackers as well as multiple attackers. The physiological and psychological aspects of combat are also covered including de-escalation skills and awareness, how to manage fear, as well as recovery skills from a violent encounter. Survival Jiu-jitsu is our second stream of development and is what makes our Krav Maga self-defence system unique and more adaptable than other systems. We have incorporated different aspects of Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Muay Thai, Filipino Martial Arts and Boxing to produce an integrated and well-rounded style of Krav Maga that gives our students the best tools to protect themselves. An introduction to live sparring helps increase student’s confidence, giving you the best chance to protect yourself, should you need to.
