NAUKA – WANTED WORLDWIDE
Nauka, “The Science,“ is a fighting style from Serbia. It is worldwide used for Personal Protection, Defensive Tactics and Military Combatives so people can deal with violence.
Since its origination in 1910, Nauka has had one major goal – to defeat enemies in the best possible way, whether they are criminals, soldiers, terrorists or other threats. Another important aspect is the positive effect on mental and physical health. So in general, Nauka is about the expansion of honorable values and getting home safely at the end of the day.
Violence is a part of our nature and has always been with us. Most people in our societies understand its consequences and try to avoid it. The problem starts with ignoring violence, because some people will exploit this. When violent acts occur to people who have always ignored it, they are mentally overwhelmed by the situation and are not able to respond properly. This can be life threatening.
Nauka was born and raised in the streets and battlefields of Europe. Therefore, Nauka knows the problems of violence and offers a complete training. It uses centuries-proven war arts and adapts them to the conflicts of our time. To successfully protect against modern violence, one must first understand it and you better know the environment in which you move, because this is the environment in which you will have to defend yourself. Street mentality is a world unto itself. It has its own languages, cultures, rituals and rules. Not for nothing is such an environment called the „Concrete Jungle“.
Nauka focuses on the cultivation of intelligence, emotion and instinct, while using simple movements. It works as an update of innate human protective mechanisms. This keeps it functional in extreme situations, where highly demoralizing conditions are involved, like fatigue, improper gear and equipment, unfamiliar and varied terrain, injuries, emotions, armed and multiple opponents.
A major strategic concept is the Nauka Conflict Matrix, which emphasizes 5 solutions to deal with conflicts. Each phase has its own sub-sections and special training methods. A Naukan will learn things like avoiding potential conflicts, prevention and preparation, timely exit of conflicts, rapid escape, exploration of safer places, confidence and strong outside appearance, verbal de-escalation and commands, first aid, necessary escalation and proper use of violence (worst case). Nauka is divided in Combat (fighting and defense), Survival (Skills for extreme situations) and Tradition (historical culture and martial arts).
THE NAUKA CLAN – HOME OF THE NAUKANS
From ancient times until today, people like to surround themselves with like-minded people. Members of the Naukan Clan, or “Naukans“ are no different. They form a worldwide family of brothers and sisters united in the Nauka Clan, where freedom and community are preserved through loyalty and respect.
The Nauka Clan is deeply rooted in the chivalry of the Serbian culture, as this is the founders’ personal heritage and their source of power through their own history. We also believe in human nature and that a person can do good or evil things in life without any connections to their origin. We actively seek out people who are doing good things and have a positive outlook on life. As a Naukan, you must be open-minded and respectful to other Naukans. All cultures are welcome. As we have all experienced suppression in our history and in our societies, we do not tolerate cultural, racial, religious, political, or gender-related suppression or discrimination in our Nauka Clan. Although occasional jokes might come from other Naukans, nothing is meant to be disrespectful. In the end, we are all part of the same Clan – We are Naukans.
The Nauka Clan offers a great network, where Naukans are helping out other Naukans, whether in their private or in their working life. Everybody has something he or she is good at and it helps to talk to experts from different professions to share experiences. In addition to ordinary civilians, Naukans consist of professionals across all sectors, such as companies, organizations, law enforcement, military, rescue services, security services, schools, celebrities, sports athletes, stuntmen and many more. Every Naukan profits from the Clan and every Naukan can give back to the Clan. This is our strong community.
Nauka Clan Members are wisely chosen. Traditionally, this comes from the strict rules in the Communist Era in Yugoslavia, but also from older times under different terrible occupations. The Nauka ancestors had to be clandestine about their heritage. Their culture, their faith and their Nauka Fighting Style were all practiced in secret. Today we are free to do what we want, but we still keep this tradition, as we do not want the wrong people in our Clan.
Nowadays, we live faster and faster, with more tension, less time and more threatening violence in between. The Nauka Clan serves as a stronghold for like-minded people, who share honesty, respect and loyalty. Naukans regularly come together for meetings, parties and other events. They are also involved in many chartity projects, to help those who need it. Naukans live as heroes of their own life.
The unity of the Nauka Clan is represented by the “Nauka Bear Paw” Logo. Even though Naukans have a different origin, they share the same attitudes, as well as their passion for the Nauka Fighting Style and their Nauka Clan. They identify with the logo on flags, clothes, patches and other media.
THE NAUKA LOGO – BRAND OF THE BEAR
Our Symbol and Coat of Arms is the “Nauka Bear Paw” and is explained like this:
- In Slavic mythology, the bear is a very special animal, through its calmness and strength.
- 5 conflict solutions concentrated in one direction (Conflict Matrix)
- The human body is symbolized by the large part of the paw. The claws represent the 5 weapons of the body – the legs, the arms and the head.
- Someday someone said about the family: “These gentlemen are like bears. They go their own way, which you better should not block!”
