WHAT DO OUR MEMBERS THINK?
Ryer is the real deal. I've done Boxing, Kickboxing, and Krav Maga at locations across Pittsburgh, and I've never encountered a studio where every single aspect is so impeccably run. The mats, bags, gloves, equipment and entire locker room are all in such stunningly good condition that they look like they've never been used. All the students are extraordinarily friendly and helpful. All the coaches have the rare combination of advanced expertise, deep passion for martial arts and a constructive approach. They build up every sequence from the simplest movements to complex combinations to match each student's level of experience. More than anyone, this is true for the owner Josh Ryer who sets the culture and tone with his complete mastery of the curriculum and keen eye for perfection in every detail balanced with an easy going laugh and friendly laid back attitude. If you want fitness and fun combined with real world defense training, I hope to see you in class soon!

I can't say enough about Ryer Academy and all the amazing teachers there. My daughter started there at age three and is now eight and still loves it and enjoys every class. The school has not only given her physical skills, body awareness and self defense tactics, but it has also given her confidence and has developed her character. For anyone thinking of karate for themselves or their child, Ryer Academy is a special place!

Definitely one of the best martial arts academies in Pittsburgh. I have noticed a significant improvement in my strength and overall fitness since joining here. The classes, though challenging, are insanely fun! What sets this academy apart from the other fitness centers I have tried in Pittsburgh, is the owner and trainer of the place, Josh. Just an amazing trainer and an amazing person; always pushes you to improve and to strive to be better. I feel like, since joining here, not just my fitness but other areas of my life have improved as well. It's just awesome! If you haven't yet, you have to try these classes!

They have been instrumental in helping to ensure staff be mindful of their environment through the implementation of safety techniques and a safety plan. Staff have found the trainings to be an essential part of their tool kit for ensuring their safety while at work.
