Jigokuryu Martial Arts was founded in 2011 by Kaicho Peyman NikNazar (PNN). Kaicho PNN started his martial arts training at age 4 and has accumulated more than 32 years’ experience in practical exercises, and more than 20 years’ experience in instructing traditional and modern self-defence, Jujitsu, Judo, Karate (full contact, Kyokushin, Shitoryu, Gojuryu), Aiki-jūjutsu, Aikido, Kobudo and Iaijutsu (Weapons). Having completed training under the supervision of Japanese and international grandmasters, Kaicho PNN has earned advanced Dan Black Belts in all these styles and has achieved 7th Dan Black Belt in multidisciplinary martial arts. He has served as an elite martial arts referee and is an accredited International/Australian instructor and assessor in martial arts, fitness and personal training. Not satisfied with these personal achievements, he remained determined to explore further opportunities to learn and develop. And so, After graduation in mechanical engineering (2004), he began to study and scientific research about martial arts at the Biomechanics and Sport Engineering Research Centres, distilling the essence of major martial arts styles, gathering , analysing and categorizing their techniques. These studies and researches allowed him to compile the most powerful techniques for self defence among major martial arts styles. The result is the unique mix of traditional and modern martial arts styles now known around the world as Jigokuryu® (Sharp Lightening). With a keen interest in deeper, mental aspects of martial arts, Kaicho PNN became a fully qualified strategic psychotherapist
