CMA Ryu (Combat Martial Arts School) has grown out of the Kempo Kan Ju-Jitsu club started by Renshi Dave Court (Yondan) back in 2002 in South Manchester. As he continues to learn and study the arts available to his students have also increased, allowing him to offer more classes to accomadate a wider variety of the general public. Renshi Court has over 38yrs experience in studying various Martial Art systems, such as Wado Ryu Karate, Kempo Ju-Jitsu, Dacayana Eskrima and most recently the Kali & JKD Concepts Instructor Program offered by Holywell Martial Arts. Renshi Court has also studied other systems in his youth such as Fung Shao Kung Fu, Boxing, Goshin Kai Aikido & Contact Karate (Kickboxing). Renshi Court’s aim is to provide his students with techniques that will work in real life combat or self-defence situations regardless of an opponents’ size or strength, the techniques taught tend to be simple and effective rather than flashy or complicated.
Renshi Court also travels upto Bury (North Manchester) to train with Shihan George Launders (Zen Judo) a couple of times a month
Sensei Court also holds a Physical First Aid Certificate from St. John's Ambulance, and is also a certified Mental Health first Aider after attending a two day course run by Mental Health England.
