To be part of PRIMAL is to be part of a community striving for a higher quality of life, through the dedicated practice of PRIMAL activity. We are a Budo club (martial arts dojo).


COMBAT

PRIMAL Combat System is a modern full contact martial art based on concealed weapon drawing under the pressure of close quarter attack. The guiding principle is to transition from empty hand to weapon of carry or improvisation. It has been born out of Ryan Davies’ life experience and direct study of Israeli Martial Arts Systems (Krav Maga / A.C.T / S.S.S ).

MOVEMENT

Run, jump, crawl, swing, kick, punch, fall, rollget down, get up, dance, you were born to move. We used to be hunters hunting with nothing but a bow and spear - us against the planet, the movement of survival. Think how that compares to the movement you do today and how much movement you do in a day. All our PRIMAL programs are movement based.

STRENGTH

Lift, pull, push, throw. Our Strength program is base on the tried and tested principles. The PRIMAL Strength you would need to build, hunt, climb and fight. Strength when developed naturally takes time and devoted practice. When we say PRIMAL we really mean PRIMAL. We do not promote competition or the use of any unnatural substances.

PRIMAL Founder Ryan Davies has been training in and experimenting with many martial arts since he was a child. It’s hard to say how many influences he has had over the years. The one thing that is certain is that he endlessly pursues knowledge in combat. 

In the past Ryan has actively traveled, trained, competed, taught and represented full contact sport and self defence systems– Muay Thai / Krav Maga

Ryan today teachers Armed Combat & Tactics A.C.T. / Street Survival System S.S.S. He regards his teaches Alexander Zhelezniak, Noah Gross, and Micheal Ryazanov very highly-

http://www.a-c-t.co.il

Born and raised in Johannesburg South Africa, Ryan has been exposed to the reality of violence and criminal mentality. This has shaped him to become critically aware of his need for self defence. This factor alone is what motivated him to open a school of martial arts and self defence. Ryan has concluded that the in-depth study of weapons is essential to combat and self defence. Ryan continues to travel to Israel as frequently as possible for continuous training. He is the head combat coach at PRIMAL GYM.

The Platform-

PRIMAL combat system (A.C.T / S.S.S / Krav Maga adaptation) is a modern full contact martial art based on concealed weapon drawing under the pressure of close quarter attack. The guiding principle is to transition from empty hand to weapon of carry or improvisation. It has been born out of Ryan Davies real life survival experience and direct his direct study of Israeli Martial Arts Systems (Krav Maga /A.C.T/ S.S.S )

The Skill-

We teach you how to fight from empty handed to drawing a practical weapons, against single and multiple armed opponents in both urban and natural outdoor environments.

The Purpose-

For personal self defence, peace of mind and of course fun while learning something that could prove useful in everyday life.

Budo-

PRIMAL combat system is not a military system, it is a mix martial art developed from the experience of a South African civilian for civilians. The goal is to understand the criminal mindset around weapons. We unpack the perspective of criminal and the relationship between criminal’s vs civilians. The system takes into account the psychological reasoning of the “why, how and what” as different reasons and rationalisations exist when violence occurs.

PRIMAL S & C by Founder Zanalee Davies & Jan Valentine Oberholzer

Traditionally Strength and Conditioning is the physical and physiological development of athletes for elite sport performance. The role of a strength and conditioning is to use exercise prescription specifically to improve performance in athletic competition.

PRIMAL S & C in not sports specific and you do not need to be an athlete to join our programs. We make use of and combine-

  1. Barbell lifting

  2. Kettle bells

  3. Calisthenic strength and animal movement

The point is to get strong while remaining functional, heathy and injury free. The motivation is longevity through the responsible practice of movement and strength disciplines.

Muay Thai is a combat sport that finds its origin in a noble art with antique traditions. It is also the Thai national sport. In Muay Thai competitors fight standing like in Western Boxing, but elbows, knees and kicks strikes are allowed, with the only protection being the glove. An important part of this fighting style is the clinch (standing wrestle). 
MUAY literally means “combat” and it derives from the Sanskrit (original Hindu language) word “Mavya” which literally means “unite together”. While the word THAI is an adjective of the thai nation, its meaning is “free people”. Therefore, the word Muay Thai is translatable as “Thai boxing/combat”.
