About Us

Welcome to Kalah Amsterdam

Founded in 2019 by Chief Instructor Jair Stenhuijs, Kalah Amsterdam is dedicated to teaching genuine self-defense, respecting the true nature of violence.

Our Roots and Leadership

Jair Stenhuijs, inspired by Idan Abolnik’s innovative Kalah Combat System, leads our institute. With a Level 2 Kalah Combat certification and a 4th-degree black belt in Taekwon-Do, Jair’s expertise is complemented by co-instructor Arsalan Akbar’s fervent passion.

Making Amsterdam Safer

Our goal? A safer Amsterdam. We emphasize reality in our training, ensuring everyone learns without ego. At Kalah, we’re all students, continuously evolving.

Diverse Courses for All

Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, we have a course for you. From personal training to corporate workshops, our certified team prepares students for real-life situations.

Why Kalah Amsterdam Stands Out

We’re more than a self-defense school. We combine authentic training methods with relatable instructors. The journey is challenging, but the rewards are profound.

Safety First

We prioritize safety. Our training is intense but safe, and our students often praise the realism we bring to each session.

Our Vision for Amsterdam

We dream of a safer city and regularly offer free seminars and courses, inviting everyone to discover the world of Kalah.
