Learning to fight in Berlin – Your entry into Pahuyuth

Whether you want to use the Pahuyuth knowledge to learn martial arts or effective self-defense. No matter if you want to learn something about Asian culture, Far Eastern philosophy or even traditional medicine. Or whether you just want to do something for your health and fitness – with us every new student starts as a so-called yellow belt (probationary student).

Pahuyuth martial arts learn online registration yellow belt

Unlike in some other martial arts and martial arts, Pahuyuth has a trial phase with an entrance exam, which determines whether someone is accepted as a full-fledged Pahuyuth student (green belt) and gains access to the knowledge of the Pahuyuth disciplines.

This means that even if you are already trained in, martial arts, boxing, Muay Thai (Thaiboxing), Muay Boran, Lethwei, kickboxing, MMA, Krav Maga, Taekwondo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wing Tsun, Kung Fu, Sanda, Judo, Eskrima, Kali, FMA, stick fighting, self-defense or the like – if you do not yet have a Pahuyuth rank, it is best to start with the beginners.

This is not a disgrace, but serves above all your safety and your learning success!

pahuyuth beginner training techniques

Step by step – Pahuyuth is learned from scratch.

Traditional training (as it used to be)

In former times, Pahuyuth students had to apply to a teacher, for example by working as temple novices (Dek Wat, church child). Initially, each of these students was only taken in as probationary student to first examine their character and ideas.

Village

The ancient teachers them an insight into the fighting knowledge, but no concrete fighting techniques to prevent possible abuse by an unadmitted student. It was only at a later stage that the teacher decided whether and to what extent it was possible for him to impart the requested knowledge to the novice and to accept him as a full-fledged student (green belt).

In reference to the Buddhist robes of the temple novices, Pahuyuth probationary students (Lugsidt Todlong) still wear a golden yellow belt today. Instead of cleansing work in the temple, there is nowadays a structured (and partially even digital) teaching concept with which everyone can be taught the basics of Pahuyuth and much more.

Then as now, however, the Principle of Volition applies, which is indispensable for admission as a Pahuyuth student.

Every beginning is difficult – Pahuyuth requires initiative, self-discipline and willpower.

What is this all about again?

We teach Pahuyuth (pronounced Pah-hoo-yutt). Pahuyuth is an ancient Southeast Asian martial art that was developed, used and passed on by paramilitary Free-Warriors, mercenaries and special forces. At the same time, Pahuyuth is a so-called combat knowledge, which is closely linked to a spiritual field of knowledge called Saiyasart and an independent naturopathy. All three fields of knowledge together form the so-called Traditional Free-Warrior Knowledge.

Sounds complicated? No problem! Just watch this video to get an idea of our training, our teaching concept and our philosophy.

How does such a trial training work?

If you wish, you can begin your first trial right now. You don’t have to sign up, pay anything, make an appointment or go anywhere!

  • Step 1: Try doing the 30 exercises

     

    Step 1: Try doing the 30 exercises

    The 30 Exercises are our standard fitness training for beginners. We share this approximately one-hour workout for free on our website. To do the 30 exercises, you don’t need any equipment, you don’t have to buy anything and you don’t have to register anywhere. We recommend that you take a look at the exercises on our topic page and simply try them out contact-free. If you need help with the exercises, just sign up and come by!

    Important: In order to train with us it is not necessary to be able to perfom the 30 exercises perfectly. This step is just about getting a first impression of our training and giving you a few basics so that you can get the most out of your first on-location training.

    ➔ To the 30 Exercises

  • Step 2: Learn your first fighting techniques

     

    Step 2: Learn your first fighting techniques

    You can also learn your first fifteen fighting techniques for beginners completely free of charge and even contact-free from home. Just watch our instructional video from 1984 and try to do the techniques shown. For this you need neither previous knowledge nor a special talent. Just give it a try. If you need help with the techniques, just sign up and come by!

    Important: As with step number 1, it is not necessary to be able to do these techniques before you join us. See it more as a small self-test to find out (contact-free and without much effort) whether you enjoy our training at all or whether you are already able to work freely and independently on your development. Why this is important for our training / our way of fighting, we explain below.

    ➔ To the instructional video from 1984

    Pro Tip: If you are particularly interested in the topics Saiyasart, Yaan Meditation and Free-Warrior Medicine, then take a look at the (also free) content for beginners.

  • Step 3: Choose a warrior name

     

    Step 3: Choose a warrior name

    Pahuyuth is a traditional martial art taught according to the traditions of the ancient Free-Warriors. The ancient Free-Warrior were paramilitary special forces, mercenaries and commando units who fought for peace and freedom in Southeast Asia for many centuries. The concealment of their identities served to protect them from persecution. They became “no one”.

    Following the ancient traditions, we have always valued data protection and maintain a so-called “tradition of discretion”. For this reason, you are not obliged to give us your real name when registering or during training or to disclose any other personal data to us.

    Before you register for further training, we would therefore like to ask you to choose an alias or pseudonym (we call it a warrior name). This can be anything, for example a fictional character from pop culture or a personality of contemporary history. Gamertags or other code names are also perfectly fine. In other words, don’t tell us what your name is, but who you are!

    We look forward to meeting you!

  • Step 4: Register and come by!

     

    Step 4: Register and come by!

    If you enjoyed steps 1-3 and you would like to have more of that in your life, then just send us a short mail with your warrior name and your desired training date to [email protected] and come by!

    The school is open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7-10 pm. There you can either join forces with other probationary students in order to train the content from steps 1 and 2 and/or ask the teaching staff and older students for checkups, corrections and further knowledge.

    Pro Tip: Don’t be shy and ask as many questions as possible. In this way, you can check if we understand our craft, expand your own knowledge and get to know everyone better.

What happens next?

In Pahuyuth there is a unified “tutorial phase” in which you learn the necessary basics in order to be able to continue learning safely and purposefully. In this way, we ensure that both beginners and well-versed fighters with previous experience are on the same level of knowledge.

As a beginner (yellow belt) you first learn the basics of Pahuyuth. They consist of the 30 Exercises, the PQS of class 0 and a total of 45 techniques, which are divided into Physical Knowledge, Defense Knowledge and Safety Knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge and the so-called carrier’s worthiness.

  • Carrier’s Worthiness

If you have worked through steps 1-4 (see above), you should have a very good foundation to acquire the missing content. If you wish, we will gladly assist you with that!

Lugsidt Lerninhalte

The teaching contents of the probationary student phase are divided into technical qualification and carrier’s worthiness. The latter results from forgiveness, which is taught, among other things, with the Warrior’s Creed.

Pahuyuth never walk alone jumped up

Pahuyuthies never walk alone – since we practice “learning by teaching”, every higher belt wearer serves you as a contact person and tutor.

The Pahuyuth Entrance Exam

If you wish, you can take the Pahuyuth entrance exam (yellow belt to green belt) at any time. The exam is free of charge and there is no minimum contract period. Just drop by or make an online appointment when you feel ready.

Advanced training

Once you have mastered the basics, you can choose your desired discipline(s), learn them individually and/or combine them at your own discretion. From here on, the Pahuyuth teaching system works like a powerful construction kit that covers both armed and unarmed combat.

Martial arts online learn create your build

If and to what extent you “level up” your skills within this “skilltree” is always entirely up to you.

No matter whether you want to develop yourself into a specialist in a certain type of combat or a jack of all trades – if you wish, we will accompany you from start to finish in your individual acquisition of the Pahuyuth knowledge and help you to develop a unique and perfectly tailored to you fighting style.

Do you already have previous experience in other martial arts or combat sports? Excellent! Use it to make your “build” even more unique and therefore more dangerous. There is no limit with us!

You can choose from:

Self-defense, of course, is also taught. However, we do not understand this topic as an independent Pahuyuth discipline, but as interdisciplinary competence and valuable basic attitude, which we impart to all our students.

Pahuyuth contains a total of seven martial arts disciplines, which can be learned individually and combined with each other seamlessly.

In addition, there are the areas of knowledge of the Saiyasart and the traditional Free-Warrior medicine, which also belong to the traditional Free-Warrior knowledge.

The Yaan Meditation, in turn, is a spin-off from Saiyasart and deals with bringing subconscious perceptions into consciousness. This too be learned as part of our training.

Pro Tip: Expand your fighting skills with the additional knowledge areas to unlock even more unique “perks”!

Become a member – Training formats

We currently offer two study formats for members:

  • Hybrid face-to-face training in Berlin

     

    Hybrid face-to-face training in Berlin

    Going to a school, gym, dojo, etc. and only being able to learn or train there is old fashioned. Our new hybrid training combines the best of traditional martial arts training and modern day e-learning.

    You train up to three times a week (i.e. up to 12 hours per week) on location training at the Kampfkunstschule Neukölln. In addition you get 24/7 access to thousands of videos, tutorials, graphics, texts, archive recordings and other learning aids through our online platforms as part of your study package. This enables you to study at any time and anywhere in the world.

    Thanks to our in-house online forum, you can get in touch with other members and teachers at any time. In this way, you can easily ask questions and get valuable feedback even outside of regular school opening hours.

    Your advantage: From now on you are no longer dependent on fixed training times. This allows you to determine your own learning pace even better and make training in the Pahuyuth School even more efficient, effective and flexible.

  • Online training worldwide

     

    Online training worldwide

    If you are not in Berlin or for some other reason cannot or do not want to participate in the classroom training in Berlin-Neukölln, this is no problem at all! Just train when and where you want!

    Our online training is contact-free, lockdown-compliant and even climate-friendly. The learning content is exactly the same as for our face-to-face lessons in Berlin. All qualifications that you achieve through our online training are valid in our live training. The only test you need for this is the speed test for your Internet line!

    Your advantage: No matter if there is another lockdown or further contact restrictions in the future, whether you are in quarantine or simply too busy to come by – thanks to our new e-learning, you will never have to forgoe your martial arts training ever again!

For non-Berliners, commuters, travelers and Berlin tourists

You don’t live in Berlin or are you only stay in Berlin from time to time? Are you passing through or planning a temporary stay in Berlin? No problem! Follow the steps 1-4 listed above in advance and come to our live training when you are in town. When you leave, you can continue your training seamlessly with our online training!

Do you offer any “normal” courses, groups or workshops?

Our teaching concept is based on the structured formation of self-competence, self-efficacy, individuality and self-empowerment through self-knowledge.

As a (free) warrior, you have to learn to make your own decisions, to stand for yourself and to go your own way with awareness. The sooner you develop these qualities, the freer and more self-determined your life and ultimately your fighting style will be.

A constant frontal lesson or a guided training group do not live up to this claim (according to our understanding). Instead, we consider you to be a mature and equal person or fighter from minute one and accompany you with words and deeds in your personal development.

Our motto in this regard is:

We can show you the way to the toilet, but to go there and … is up to you!”

In practice, this means that you can come to our school during the respective opening hours. There you will find both teaching staff who can support you individually in your development as well as classmates with whom you can arrange joint training (in pairs or in a group), if you would like to.

In other words: With us, every training is a personal training and you are always the architect of your own fate. Of course, the same applies to our online offer.

Sweet poison – a guided course seduces to shift the responsibility for yourself and your training to others.

Pahuyuth course workshop seminar berlin training trial

As a warrior(ess), you have to learn to take your fate into your own hands. If you don’t, sooner or later others will do it for you. With us you will learn how to develop your resilience and thereby preserve your freedom and independence!

Are there any extra costs?

We have designed our memberships in such a way that you can use them to train and qualify as a Pahuyuth Warrior. If you need additional input, we recommend taking a look at our publications.

Please note that physical learning aids such as The Pahuyuth history book, PQS test booklets, and the Pahuyuth Compendium for example must be purchased separately. The same applies to personal equipment such as boxing gloves (8 oz.) or building materials for training weapons (available in every hardware store). This is the only way we can keep the price of our membership fees as low as possible.

Belts and certificates – How high are your examination fees?

The Pahuyuth qualification system is based exclusively on existing expertise and related competence in the field of Pahuyuth. The system includes belt levels and examinations, but no certificates, diplomas or examination fees.

The belt levels serve as visible indicators for the minimum level of knowledge of its respective wearer. However, the colours of the belts do not establish a hierarchy, nor do they serve as a badge of rank or status symbol. This would be contrary to the freedom and equality principles of the Free-Warriors.

Examinations in Pahuyuth are always free of charge. Anyone who fulfills the necessary requirements can take a Pahuyuth belt exam. Internal as well as external students can register for a formal confirmation of their knowledge at a Pahuyuth educational institution. They will always receive this confirmation for free. Basically, no decisions about progress are made in the Pahuyuth. Either existing knowledge can be confirmed or correction recommendations are given.

In Pahuyuth it is never about the mutual bestowal of certificates or the establishment of a social or economic structure. Pahuyuth is exclusively about the transmission of potentially life-prolonging martial arts knowledge. If this knowledge is demonstrably there, it can be formally confirmed by a Pahuyuth teacher or examiner.

The certification model of Pahuyuth is independent of documents and attestations. A Pahuyuth practitioner always carries his true belt-rank within himself because the Pahuyuth-knowledge has become a part of him. Therefore he easily recognizes those who only pretend to have this knowledge but do not possess it.

A true Pahuyuth belt can never be obtained by fraud, be bought or gifted – It can only earned.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

The training is suitable for men and women from 14 years.

In the case of underage participants, we kindly ask that a special form to be filled in and signed for the training.

The Pahuyuth training is physically and psychologically demanding. We recommend to consult a doctorbefore taking any physical or physical activity. If you suffer from a permanent injury or chronic illness, please inform the instructor before starting the training.

Why should it? Individuality, freedom and equality among people are among our core values. Our community has always been open to people of any origin, ethnicity, gender, religion or other characteristics. Just be yourself!

Before you consider trying to defeat someone, you should first learn to overcome yourself. Start with this.

As long and as short as it takes. Your learning progress with us always depends only on you and your circumstances. For example, if you manage to acquire all the Pahuyuth knowledge within a month and successfully pass the (free) red belt exam, then that is perfectly fine for us. If it takes a little longer, then it takes a little longer.

Our recommendation: Take the time you need and enjoy the things you discover along the way. Then you will reach your destination quickly enough and in time!

This, too, depends on you, your willpower and your circumstances. Experience has shown that our students in Berlin need on average about four to nine months to qualify for the entrance exam. If you train more than two to three times a week (e.g. daily for several hours), then it could well be a little faster. If, on the other hand, you only do something for yourself once a month, it will take longer. Incidentally, the current record is twenty years, due to a very long stay abroad.

The memory of poor quality lasts longer than the brief joy of a low price. Our members know that they always get more out of it than they invest. No matter how much they pay.

We want to make the Pahuyuth knowledge accessible to anyone who wants to learn it. We would like to give it away, which we already do in parts with our free learning offers. It is said, that “Whoever cannot fight needs it and who can fight no longer needs it.” – By teaching those who need it to fight, we try to increase the number of people who no longer strive for violence and destruction on their own and thus make a contribution to the well-being of humanity.

For general Pahuyuth membership, Patreon’s usual terms and conditions apply. Normally, you should be able to cancel monthly. Find more details at Patreon Support.

You can also cancel the payment of the rental share by standing order on a monthly basis if you no longer want to participate in the classroom training. We don’t ask questions.

The Pahuyuth membership (aka online membership)is the basic fee for all participants. The rental share is an optional additional package for all those who want to participate in our face-to-face training.

The bright clothing you see in our pictures and videos has proven to be detrimental in the corona-related outdoor training of 2020 (e.B. because of grass stains), so it was retired by us. Most of us now wear a black T-shirt (e.g. from our Pahuwear shop), short black pants and a belt. An exclusive Pahuyuth T-shirt or hoodie will be sent to members automatically and at no extra charge after three or twelve months of membership.

No problem! Just send an email to [email protected].
