What Other Members Are Saying:

I started training with sensei Ryan in the mid-1990s when I was in junior high and high school, when he was running an American karate dojo, and have trained more recently with him in danzan ryu jujitsu. I can say from personal experience that Ryan is an exceptionally well-rounded martial artist, both physically and spiritually, and continues to evolve in his own learning--a sign of someone who is truly committed to martial studies. What really makes Ryan stand out, however, is his enthusiasm and skill in instructing. Teaching is something that he clearly has a passion for. He is able to break down complicated concepts into easily digestible chunks, and has a way of seeing a student's strengths and weaknesses. This allows him to take a personalized approach to that student's development, as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach to martial arts. His demeanor in the class is an interesting blend of drill sergeant, coach and mentor. He will push you, but in an encouraging way. If I lived in Marin I would train with Ryan more consistently. For anyone who wants a well-rounded approach to martial arts--that includes comprehensive striking, weapons, ground game and defense against weapons and multiple opponents--I give MSDS my highest recommendation.

Master Neuman is an amazing martial artist with incredible skills. I have trained with him for many years and his Filipino boxing and weapons are simply awesome. His knowledge of the human body and ability to use striking or joint lock techniques makes his technical skills unsurpassed. Latosa Escrima and Danzan Ryu jujitsu flow together to make for what I consider to be the perfect self defense blend. If you are interested in martial arts training and want to work with a true master it is worth checking out a class.
