Kurodaiya Principles

Kurodaiya is “the Next Generation” Selfdefense/ fighting system, originated from the Neteherlands , based on the philosophy of the MAHABHARAT ( violence ends where respect begins) and the principle of Mahatma Gandhi ( non violence behaviour)


It attacks with kicks and punches , but it is not Karate or Taekwondo .

It defends with clamps and chokes , but it is not Jiu Jitsu and Kenpo .

It works with grips and throws, but it is not Judo or Aikido .

It uses gloves , weapons and pressure points , but it is not Nin- Jitsu or (kick ) boxing .

It looks like that what you already know , but is not a mix of different styles or systems .

[ / pull quote ] Kurodaiya is an internationally practical self-defense system based on a small number of techniques that can universally  be taught. It is not similar to other systems / or styles and techniques , but in terms of developing a few steps further . It uses Bio – Mechanical principles, balance control and disturbance , and simple but effective techniques . It does not use traditional blocks, but the preference is given to neutralizing and de-escalating defenses and counters and techniques which cause a disruption to balance , resulting in a drop- attack that is no longer effective . Within Kurodaiya we do not fight to defend us, but we follow the attack and control the person to ensure that he / she can not peform further attacks. Then you can continue to perform your actions according to your need to feel safe . ( Non aggressive and proportionate) .

This can be achieved by using the right muscle for the right action to defend the first attack and controle the opponent with minimum use of force , touch and movement control ,so that  a follow-up attack is no longer possible .  If you use too much force , it goes against you . You power becomes your enemy ! If you make unnecessary movements , you easily lose your balance and can not act optimally . If you make too much contact with your opponent , you make him / her stronger.

The Kurodaiya system assumes that you always have a stronger opponent , which is faster and will perform many attacks in a row. In practice, you only have a split second to react to an attack with a defense or counterattack . [ Pull quote style = " right" quote = "light " ] Kurodaiya literally means black diamond . A diamond in original condition is actually black. By polishing and cutting of  the edges, one can create many facets . So it is with the techniques of Kurodaiya . They are subject to change . [ /Pull quote ]

The Kurodaiya system distinguishes between art , self-defense and sports .

Art is good for the health and maintaning the body but enough for self-defense

Sports is good for competition to score point but not enough for self-defens

Self-defense should be practical adn effective and does not include any “dummy”training and amy follow up reactions on one action of the attacker.

It is not that a good fighter in a match by definition is a good defender  in actual combat . But someone who can defend in a real fight , well , can be a good fighter in a match . ( Something to think about ) .

Many self- defense programs are working with dummy techniques and therfor very often miss their target . Everything is still practiced in stationary situations. The attacker place one attack and then he does nothing with the other hand or legs . This is not realistic. Usually, there is always a reaction take place on any (fast ) action of the defender.

In real practical situation you need to be aware of that:

You will be moved and every movement has a purpose.

There will be multiple attacks occur. It ‘s not just that one act .

Everything is must be practiced in motion , as it happens in reality.

Everyone will benefit from the techniques of Kurodaiya program because they are very practical and effective and therefore very realistic. It is to be learned a very short time and to carry out and to be applied in the practice .

Kurodaiya is :

New and revolutionary De- escalating and 100 % proportional ( within the law )

Has the ALPHA FACTOR ( NON aggressive behavior )
Increases performance for martial artists
Based on inner peace in conflict and violence situations
Based on scientific principles of Bio – Mechanics Tested and perfected in real life (street ) violence situations

The Kurodaiya techniques you do not need years of training to get you to defend optimally. Read the testimonial page .

Kurodaiya uses the belt system as in the traditional Japanese styles!
