Through classes geared for men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes, our school itself has become a community of learning and growth. We'd love nothing more than for you to become a part of it. That way you too can enrich your life, learn self-defense, and get in great shape too.


Together, these three elements lead to a happier, healthier life.

But it doesn't stop there. You also learn self-defense to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and sound. And while you may never have to use these skills in a real-life situation - just knowing that you CAN protect yourself will give you peace of mind. In fact, the confidence you'll exude is enough to diffuse most situations before they ever arise. After all, attackers like to focus in on weak individuals. When you emit strength, confidence and pride - it's enough to keep most of them at bay.

Helping you succeed in martial arts is the only goal of our Bayonne program. Everyone here - each of our martial arts instructors - is passionate about helping you succeed, have fun, and enjoy the time you spend here.

Our staff of instructors here at Senshi Tori Mixed Martial Arts in Bayonne, NJ has the confidence and belief that anyone can succeed in any of our training programs. Senshi Tori Mixed Martial Arts is committed to providing the highest quality training available and is proud to say that we will give a positive learning environment in which individuals of all ages can benefit from.

We strive for out student's happiness and we do everything in our power to make sure our students are obtaining, building strength, developing technique, and having a great time.

Meet Ramon Rivera
Owner at Senshi Tori
Mixed Martial Arts in Bayonne, NJ
San Dan 3rd degree black

Ramon Rivera has dedicated his life to bringing the physical - and spiritual - benefits of martial arts to the community of Bayonne.

Soke Ray was born and raised in the Bronx, NY and was first introduced to Martial Arts at the early age of ten. Ray trained at this early age under Sensei Cisco at the Davidson Community Center where he studied the art of Shotokan Karate.

He then began to study under Sensei Michael in the art of Freestyle Karate. Sensei Michael was a NYC Guardian Angel who taught Soke Ray to blend multiple karate systems that were being utilized at the Guardian Angels training facility.

At the age of fifteen, Ray began boxing at the PAL center on 183rd Street and Webster Avenue in the Bronx under Coach Rick. Soke Ray relocated to Bayonne, NJ and continued his training in Isshinryu Karate under Shihan Jerry Tardi and Shihan George Strydio. Soke Ray earned his second degree black belt in Isshinryu Karate in 2002 as well as his San Dan 3rd degree black belt in Japanese Jujitsu under Shihan Jerry Tardi and Grand Master Soke Joseph Miller in 2005.

He has trained in multiple disciplines such as Japanese Jujitsu, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, American Wrestling, Freestyle Submission Grappling, Judo, Kali, Street Fighting, Karate and Boxing.

In 2005 Ray was granted his right of passage to create his own system of self-defense and granted his Soke-ship under Soke Joseph Miller (TAI ZAN RYU GOSHIN JITSU).

Senshi Tori Mixed Martial Arts was the vision of Soke Ray Rivera to blend each discipline in which he trained.; boxing, kickboxing, Japanese jujitsu, judo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and submission grappling. Furthermore, his philosophy of martial arts was that every art represented a quarter in a dollar, and in order to be capable of defending yourself from any compromising position you need to incorporate these arts.

“Every discipline of martial art has something to offer and only a misguided practitioner would think different”. – Soke Ray
