Shoshin Nagamine said “Karate may be considered as the conflict within oneself or as a life-long marathon which can be won only through self-discipline, hard training and one’s own creative efforts.”[12]

Karate is a means of self defense. Not many know that it originated not from China or Japan, but from India itself. Legend has it that an ancient prince of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu observed the movements of birds and animals while they were engaged in fight and emulated them in human body movements. After experimenting on his slaves and knowing which parts of the body were vulnerable he developed the ancient art form of weaponless self defense. When Bolidharma, a Buddhist monk learnt this in India, he imparted the knowledge to monks in China and trained them.  This was later taken up further by people in Japan.

Kara in Japanese literality means Empty and te means hand.

To most of us who haven’t been trained, the first point of reference comes in the karate kid, a movie about a kid who learns the martial art form to get even with the bullies. The film was well appreciated and is still remembered by most of us and greatly increased popularity of it in the West..  However, karate has real life benefits. Not only to ward of predators does it come in handy, but also to train the body and mind and according to ancient thoughts, achieve “purity of the soul”

In karate, the size or the strength of the person doesn’t matter as much as the skill, speed and power of the moves. Martial arts not only improve bodily strength but also develop self confidence and mental health eliminating the weaknesses of human mind. In today’s world of myriads of tension, it is a great release of negative energy. Rather than offence, it is related to the practice of non violence and only wielded in protection.

Karate can be learnt by anyone in spite of age or sex; be it a school going kid or housewife. In today’s day and age of ongoing violence perpetrated by goons, chain snatchers and eve teasers, it becomes imperative to know the art of defending one self, specially for women.

The director of this solution based company – Mr. Anand Koti has worked for many social causes and community oriented projects before he founded the non-profit Colorss.

Mr. Koti is a passionate and committed teacher of karate. He himself has a training of 17 years and a second degree black belt holder. He now inspires upcoming social entrepreneurs. He takes up specialized classes to teach housewife, working women and school girls how to defend on self. The classes have greatly emancipated and created a great sense of confidence in the women in these troubling times.

ID-10036607

Working for living is appreciable but a living for the work is not. In today’s world everyone is busy racing up the income desk but in doing so they step up over the human bench. A solid income requires a solid input. But as they say, success does not some in solitary; it brings in varied hardships along the way.

High stress, inadequate diet, sky-scraping pressure, wobbly health, nuclear families, lost relationships, weak family bonds etc. are all the results of this rush life.

We are here to furnish you with a completely new concept to overcome these effects on your life. We do not ask you to perform high energy yoga or any periodic prayer.

This is a new and a very practical way of overcoming stress, pressure and a better bonding technique for the families. We introduce you to the ancient art of martial arts. Martial arts are confined systems and traditions of combat practices, which are practiced for a variety of reasons: self-defence, competition, physical health and fitness, entertainment, as well as mental, physical, and spiritual development.

Martial arts can bring up the best in you, rejuvenate you. If you are a management official, we completely understand the mind conditions you go through every day. Martial arts will help you reopen the mind for wider view and energize the body for the upcoming tasks.

Not only this, this art is helpful in the empowerment of women. We at ANAND KOTI – have an innovative Karate [martial art] project for women empowerment and their ability to refrain themselves, protect themselves and establish an independent image. If you are owned by the art of Karate, it will build a sense of confidence in you. A strong women vision contributes to a strong nation.

Another main focus of this project would be to fill in the gap between different generations. Learning Karate could work out as a team activity for a family. An influential, important and beneficial time spent together as a family. It turns out be a better physical activity as well as a communication pitch.

Protecting today’s youth from the electronic worlds never ending puzzle and preparing them for the tough future life with a good and fun idea in their childhood can be done with nothing better than martial arts. A technique that helps a women to uphold to her individualism with strength and power and rejuvenates one’s body and mind for a better thinking, for a brighter tomorrow.
