Nadeem Ansari was born in New York City August of 1972. He was raised in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Northern Manhattan. Nadeem began practicing martial arts in 1986, in the Ji Do Kwan style of Tae Kwon Do. He earned his 1st degree black belt in that system in 1995. He has taught since 1995. Nadeem began training in Kurai Ryu Ju Jitsu directly under Soke Joseph Mandese Sensei in 1989, until Mandese Sensei's passing in 2003. He is now recognized as a 4th degree black belt in Kurai Ryu Ju Jitsu, and is the chief instructor of the system.

In 2005 Nadeem has formulated his own interpretation of Ju Jitsu called Kihen Ryu™ Ju Jitsu and founded it in 2006. He and his wife have relocated to Northern Virginia where he is the USJJF representative of Virginia. He is also a KI- Kyusho International study group leader for Virginia.
