Grandmaster Horst D. Lindenau talks about the KI energy

This excerpt is a reading from BlackCombat Grandmaster Horst D. Lindenau s next book "My way with Jiu-Jitsu". We like to give a little taste what he writes about the universal power of KI. We need this supra power and energy to understand very well and act accordingly with it. Only this way our self defence skills will work as they supposed to.

Grandmaster writes ..."Success takes focus, desire, effort, hard work, determination and perseverance.
Ichinen covers them all and chanting for what you want to achieve makes your Ichinen stronger and stronger.

In this context, it is a good idea to talk about KI. I give you some thoughts about KI, the universal power and energy – the source and motor for everything.

The universe supplied each of us with a good boat and strong oars. This boat is our body and we cruise through life with it. To recognize, develop and use all the best which is in our boat, this universal KI power is the key to run someone’s life happy and successful.
And this KI is not only inside us humans.  All creatures, even a tree, a blade of grass, a stone, the water and the air lives of and through KI. Everything is therefore a part of this universe, where everything comes from.

Our life is part of this universal KI. As we are a part of the universe, we breathe KI and when this connection is working well, we are healthy and happy. When the KI becomes weak, we become slack and if the flow stops > we die!"... Page 66 / My way with Jiu-Jitsu / Amazon books 2018

Cranes are flying the blue sky. Shared KI energy.

This is BlackCombat

This is BlackCombat

Martial arts have been known since mankind is on this planet. There were always reasons to fight each other. And since then nothing has changed, only the methods to fight.

BlackCombat is the most modern system for personal self defence. Most modern because it is updated as soon as the situation out in the real word requires it. We are not living in a Dojo and we do not train for any sports and medals.

BlackCombat does not have fixed techniques. It promotes reaction to a certain situation.

BlackCombat rank and membership identifies someone who is an expert in self defence.

BlackCombat is a strong international brotherhood to assist and protect each other.

BlackCombat knows only one purpose > and that is called: Stay safe!

BlackCombat honours his graduates as experts in the field of self defence.

BlackCombat is your self defence only.

The world of street fighting, domestic violence, rape and harassment is not the same than at the time of our childhood. That’s why we need this BlackCombat system. Combat against real dangerous situations.

You have already martial art knowledge and good skills in self defence and you want a special recognition of your knowledge?

Than you can join BlackCombat and we will recognize your grade after approval and issue you the new BlackCombat certificate.



You need to have already certain skills otherwise we won’t accept you. This makes sure that the graduate understands the basics of martial arts, has a foot in combat and fighting and is willing to harden up and put the new skills on top of his knowledge. Any Dan grade will be recognized and transferred 1:1 if the circumstances are right and a focus on self defence is proven.

BlackCombat promotes realistic self defence - No sports!

When it comes to self defence the martial art skills need to include a profound training with weapons. We are not talking about ancient or ornamental weapons, as often used or found for kata training. Real weapons are those they are used by the common attacker in today's climate of violence and street fights.

This training includes natural and unnatural weapons. Todays example, sharp edged objects, as knives, scissors, screwdriver or broken bottle.
