Nearu (literally meaning Force in Persian) is a martial art focusing on self-defense and breath-control techniques. Based on using inner power and mind-body harmony, Nearu was founded in 1990 by UK-based Iranian martial artist Amir Lotfi Azad and belongs to soft martial arts school.
Nearu is considered a relatively young art, however some of its elements are rooted in forgotten ancient mind control techniques.
This martial art is unique in the focus and time spent on developing and delivering the inner power through consistent practices of its special breathing techniques.
Nearu is a registered style in International Martial Arts Association (MAAI), United Kingdom Martial Arts Federation (UKMAF) and Martial Arts Federation of Iran (MAFIRI).
