Bradley Ryan

It doesn't matter if I'm teaching modern self-defense or a classical martial art, realism is of the utmost importance to me. I originally got into the martial arts for self defense, and as such, keep it real regardless of the system I teach or practice.

I've made the martial arts a lifelong study, starting at the age of four in 1972. My studies have included many Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Indonesian, European, Brazilian, and American martial art systems.

In the summer of 1991, I published my own book as a reference guide for a course I was teaching through Colorado Free University. I am currently working on a new book based on the many lessons I have learned in all these years of training.

I strive to dispel the myths and misconceptions associated with martial arts and deliver the truth in an easy to understand method.

I'm currently teaching weekly classes and private lessons. After all of these years of training, I have specialized in a few different areas. Check out my pages and contact me to set up a seminar or private lessons.
