Atemi Ryu Jujitsu
Atemi Ryu Jujitsu is a traditional self defense system that has been enhanced for modern day combat/self defense situations. Our system has been taught to groups and individuals from the handicapped, to the elderly, to special forces at Ft Bragg. We teach modern day Aikido and Japanese Jujitsu as well as Atemi Arnis (weapons training) for urban self defense. There is no system in the world like this one. We hold nothing back in teaching from the beginning student to accomplished Black Belt we teach you at your level and bring you up to where you decide you want to be. At Atemi Ryu Jujitsu you are family from the get go. Shihan Dai Andrew O'Boyle has multiple degrees in the martial arts. 1st degree BB in Tae Kwon Do, 4th Degree BB in So Get So Ken Jutsu, 2nd degree BB in Atemi Ryu Jujitsu, 3rd Degree BB in Chendokan Aikido, and a 4th Degree BB in Atemi Arnis Jujutsu.
I absolutely enjoy everything I do at Atemi Ryu Jujitsu. Teaching honor, respect, honesty, loyalty, bravery, leadership skills, self awareness, confidence, and most of all the ability to make and achieve goals not only in martial arts but in life has been an honor in itself. Here at Atemi Ryu the learning never stops. You set a goal and achieve it, then you set another goal. Atemi Ryu Jujitsu will alway be my extended family.
