Why should I provide FREE online training?

What motivates me to frequently conduct FREE online SELF-Confidence Training for women/girls?

Life keeps acting pricey. It is simple, yet demanding and in this hustle the basic need is overlooked. We as humans are fully equipped to take care of ourselves. We can survive alone as well. However with growing time, we started being dependent, with time our grooming got compromised, the gradual process of change completely changed the individual. The instinct were lost and now for sure, the humans are lost. 

On a regular basis every month, I keep training 3 to 4 dedicated and highly motivated women/girl who want to make a difference in their life. Many a times I have been asked why I conduct FREE SELF-confidence training for women/girls. There are numerous reasons to it, am trying to give opportunity to those who are very shy from within, who are confused and do not know what to do, there are those who are very low on self-esteem and need a push and then there are those who are constantly trying to help others.

Providing free workshop keeps me grounded and helps me to offer more help and support. It helps to understand how better we can design our curriculum so that we reach out to everyone.

SELF-confidence Booster Module is a perfect way to start your practice to stay healthy, fit and fine. Our curriculum uses an amalgamation of karate and meditation along with other fillers i.e art, music. It is not at all harsh on the body and people of all ages can do it. A perfect blend to boost body-mind and soul. This module has been designed and developed by Anand Koti a 2nd Dan Black in Karate.

Why do you need SELF Confidence booster module

STRESS & ANXIETY: A person who knows how to manage them will rise high in career, have stronger family values and better relationships. Our module helps to prepare you to handle the crisis and stay strong. You know how to hold yourself

OBESITY: Staying fit automatically gels around and you gradually control yourself. Regular practice of our modules will help to promote better eating and sleeping habits. Mood swings are controlled and life gets more disciplined. Regular training will keep your energy levels high and burn more calories

BACK PAIN/POOR BODY POSTURE: Body pain is a result of poor and bad Ergonomics. A person with body pain and confused mind is someone who can be said to have weak Mental Health. Your day-to-day productivity is badly affected due to problems created out of bad postures. Now you don’t have to worry, you will get lessons to understand the correct ergonomics that is essential for healthy living

BEING ALONE IS HARDLY PROBLEMATIC: Going out for a late night movie and can’t find a companion? Want to take a trip to your favourite hill station but have no one to accompany you? Bored of the crowd around you and want to take a lonely walk down the countryside? With self-defense techniques by your side, you don’t have to worry about being alone anymore. Just make a plan and you are good to go

FAMILY: Spending time with family is now a days getting difficult. These are just those reasons to justify your action. A mind and body that is calm, quite and composed is able to manage all the relationship gracefully. Our workshops helps you to connect with yourself and your loved ones

DIGNITY: For an individual skilled in self-defense through our SELF confidence module, never has to keep mum. Whether it’s a lewd comment on the street or a sexual innuendo on the bus she can always speak up for herself without having to worry about the consequences because she knows that she is good enough to handle whatever comes her way

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, NOT FOR ME: Domestic violence in no form is ever acceptable. But what is better – to prevent it from happening in the first place or to curb it after it has happened? If you are skilled in self-defense, you never have to be a victim and you can start standing up for yourself from the day first finger gets pointed at you.

MINDFULNESS: You will learn to be more mindful about your surroundings. These lessons would help you grown and make you realize the power of human body – mind and soul. Constant practice will connect your body-mind-soul you will feel calm, relaxed and full of energy

BREATHE: Something which we are doing for granted and are not sure how this process can be the most important one. Through this guided module on breathing you will have the capacity to increase your energy, strength, will-power and have a peaceful mind

MY RESPECT, MY RESPONSIBILITY: The respect and dignity of women have been at stake for way too long. In spite of matching steps with men in every single field, women are still considered the weaker sex. It’s now time to turn the tables and show the world what women are capable of. Self-defense is no more a choice; in today’s world, it is a necessity

SELF – confidence Booster

motivation-1388479_640.jpg

My advise would be stop and ask yourself what do you want? What are you exactly looking for! Most of the time we are confused. We get more confused when we start finding random things which get aligned with our confused thoughts. Simple things are loosing its fragrance, which actually fills your life with love, peace and oneness.

As an individual many of us are okay to miss out on those simple things i.e mindful breathing, spending sometime alone, giving opportunity to the child inside to be mischievous, having breakfast on time, keeping the stuff back on its place, counting the stars at night.  You can think of all those simple things that you like and frequently ignore doing it.

You constantly work hard, during appraisals you put in more than what you could have possibly thought of, you tend to push the extra mile and finally you see the result. You achieve either a promotion, salary hike or a new job. Awesome as it sounds. Likewise you try to put in efforts to your relationship based on your respective status. You invest time, money, emotions and finally you achieve a beautiful family. It makes me happy to see what you all are achieving.

However, let me ask? No you don’t have to reply back. Honestly, think over and reply to yourself: Are you really happy from inside? Are you happy with your relationship? Are you happy with your job? And are you happy with your mental health?

You still have a lot of room for improvement. Just because you can push yourself as per your need to achieve whatever you want. If you are able to manage then its awesome; if you honestly feel you are! How long will be the question?

This is my personal observation; all the parents want the best of the world for their kids. However they just want it! The Life-Skills that they learnt from parents is a hindrance; the ergonomics learnt from parents is a hindrance and as a parent you can figure out the eating habits, addiction of gadgets, obesity..…when it gets too late; then starts the blame-game (i guess it is at an unconscious level) to justify the action. It’s very easy to point fingers and blame. However it requires balls to accept and change. Sooner or later every individual before dying repents for something or the other. Naked facts of life. Where do you see yourself!

Attention required: why? Just to press a panic button and make you realize. If you can achieve as per your need, then you should learn to organize yourself. This will save you from pushing yourself hard, every now and then.

As a trained martial artist we have developed and designed a SELF-confidence module which is an amalgamation of martial arts and meditation. Tried, tested and successful. Human Body needs to be healthy at all levels to function properly. This is the most under rated and ignored fact of life, yet ironically its the reality. As the name suggests SELF-confidence it purely narrows down to SELF of the individual and this is how we attempt to make an impact. We work on your body, strength, patience, endurance, mind and try to touch your SELF. This module specifically addresses few common as well important issues which are psychological as well physiological in nature. Positive spillovers have been recorded. Customized curriculum is designed as per the requirements. Let me tell you this module is not so rude on your body. However it will try to push you further and make you realize your potential. A perfect blend of different flavors curated only for the serious takers who would like to make life easier for themselves and as well for the future generation.

Love yourself
Cheers,
Anand

Introducing something really cool

unofficesg

With Aparna Saxena at UN Women Singapore Office

 

Systematic and mindful training is required to make the human body strong. Every body part has a specific need and accordingly it should be trained. There are many health-professionals who are constantly providing their unique health services. However, personally I feel that Human Mind is the most crucial element. Until you feed it with positive vibes and good energy you would not enjoy to the fullest.

If mind is not exercised then: Outwardly you would be strong, fit, rich, and famous but inside; deep within – you would be miserable and fake. You would suffer from jealousy, anger, depression, stress and will not have honest relationships. That’s not life man!

Gradually with time we start taking many things for granted. Creating and inviting problems for self. Our mind is weak; it’s not stable and always has the tendency to fall down. No one is teaching you how to keep your mind pepped up! We don’t know the required mechanism to lift our mind and keep it motivated.

The first thing required to counter all the negative thoughts is to counter back with a positive thought. This habit doesn’t come easy, however if you want to grow in life, feel happy about yourself then better learn this before life teaches you.

Hint – practice constant remembrance!

Our self-defense workshops tries to make the individual mindful and create awareness. Workshops have a unique curriculum that involves meditation, ergonomics, mindful breathing and self-defense. This has indeed received good response. 

We have a customized curriculum that runs for 10 days / 1 month / 6 months and for 1 year. These workshops bring about physiological as well psychological changes among the participants. One of our projects Mission 1000 is specifically designed only for the women and girls from disadvantage community. These workshops are conducted by our non-profit organization Colorss FoundationThese workshops are FREE for the participants.

In November 2016, Mission 1000 was in the Finals of Project Inspire, joint initiative from the Singapore Committee for UN Women and MasterCard, to help young change-makers create a better world for women and girls in Asia Pacific. Knowledge Partner, INSEAD, awarded us with full scholarships to INSEAD’s Social Entrepreneurship Programme (ISEP).

Out of 200 participants we were in top 10. Our objective is very clear to bring about psychological and psychological changes among the participants. Specifically, train the women. 

Our workshop gradually makes the individual quick, fast and powerful. The eye-hand coordination needs to be quick and fast. All these learning are useless, if mind is not ready to learn or accept changes happening around you. Recognize one thing, all the required responses to attack, block, run, defend, being alert and shout is given my mind. If the mind freezes then all the training goes in vain. Constant practice is required to keep the body-mind connected.

We have introduced something really cool and encouraging. We wish to give our participants an opportunity to utilize the knowledge acquired: be a part of giving back to the society. We train women/girls from disadvantage community in self-defense for free. Participate as a volunteer, revise what you learnt and see for yourself who got the opportunity to get trained when you got yourself trained. Buy 1 Gift 1 Is’t this cool!

We have trained more than 2000 women and children. As a trained martial artist 2nd Dan Black belt in Karate, Green Belt in Kubodo [Weapon System].

No rocket-science stuff. The day when you take the decision to live your own life, you would realize what you had been missing! Contact us for customized workshops. 

Life is Simple
Keep it Simple

There is no place other than road to run!

runners-751853_1280.jpgFeel happy to see the steady rise of health conscious people.  They are into many things, which keep them healthy. Fitness is moving to a different level.  I see them walking, jogging, cycling, gyming, cross-fit, yoga, strength training, endurance and so many more. This really makes me feel happy, as personally am a self-defence trainer and a health conscious individual.

What I had been noticing and observing is that most of the joggers are jogging on the road with the on-going vehicular traffic! My concern is specifically for the early morning joggers and cyclist who are out on fitness journey before sun-rise, in near pitch-darkness. They are rarely visible jogging on the road. During monsoon season it’s a challenge, the drivers need to be more vigilant to identify the presence of humans on road specifically at early hours.

Okay, there is no place other than road to run! I can understand, there is no harm to be on the road. However, how safe is it!

I have closely observed joggers running opposite traffic direction so that the driver can see their little hands moving here and there – asking them move aside and not to run-over them. At the same time, they are cautious, alert and in a position to run off the road if the driver miss seeing you. The anxiety, stress and extra alertness are clearly seen on the face of the joggers.

My question would be to the health conscious people – joggers – walkers and cyclist. Does this stress help you when you are out there to stay healthy?

The simple solution would be to educate and use common sense. Rather than keeping your mind alert. Get reflectors, glow in darkness, choose your freedom, and enjoy your workouts.

It would really make things easier for the joggers and as well for the drivers if certain precautions are taken care. The joggers and cyclists should wear radium/ light reflecting clothes which can discover your presence on road at such an hour, when no one else is on the road.

Your workout gear needs to be bright, fluorescent and must reflect! Don’t go for black, grey or brown attire which would absorb light and make you feel sexy.

The gym owners, marathon runners, health conscious people should encourage them about safety and how to be visibly visible when on road. You are a health conscious individual sweating out to be healthy. Enjoy it and be mindful about being safe. Train hard and be smart.

Cheers

Communication – goof-ups

blinds-201173_1280

The biggest challenge for we humans is to have cordial relationship with other humans 😛  – Joke – no way – think for yourself – its a fact. All other challenges are manageable. However, managing every other person apart from the ‘self’ is the most toughest job. 

To maintain a cordial relationship we need to communicate – to communicate we need to LISTEN and TALK.

Many-a-times most of us regret – Oh! I should have not said that!  But then, its too late.
Yes, I too have made blunders on this challenging aspect. With time and practice am improving myself and its not difficult.

Tongue is an awesome muscle and it loves to create ripples. Controlling it is difficult!!! Hey, wait.. what all should we control. Mind – Heart – EGO and now Tongue —> the deadly combination of these makes communication so very complex.

The way we think and respond has got multiple blindspots:

– we communicate something else – but we meant something else
– we think something and say something else
– we think something and write something else
– we mean something and our content means something else
– we think and communicate and ‘ass’u’me’ you understood, what i meant?
– we complicate communication only by thinking too much about what needs to be communicated
– we stop communicating if we are angry, stressed out, pissed off or frustrated
– we stop communicating and again ‘ass’u’me’ you understood, why I did!
– we screwed up something and to avoid circumstance we stop communicating
  phew and the list goes on and on – would love to hear about communication challenges

The complex nature of communication related issues increases as you grow up in life and have more responsibilities to manage. This is a life-long learning process and will end with the last breath of your life 🙂 cheeky is’t it!

This list is exhaustive but every problem has a solution. Listening is the most crucial part of communication; to be clear – listening and understanding the other person before talking needs to be practiced on a regular basis

–  Keep practicing and never give up:-
–  Listen properly before you talk
–  choose the right word to describe your thoughts
–  be calm and composed when you communicate
–  use simple and easy sentences to convey yourself
–  make sure you cross-check on the details conveyed and they understood you properly
–  stop ASSUMING —else you would end up making an ‘ASS’ – ‘U’ – ‘ME’
–  communicate your thoughts then and there and do not delay it. Thoughts communicated during the on-going program, workshops, discussions, situations… are easier to correlate and understand
–  Start practicing meditation and keep your mind calm
–  Do not react – be responsive
–  Think before you talk
–  Learn to accept your mistake and don’t shy way to say Sorry

With a mindful eye, dedicatedly keep practicing. You would soon better up with your own communication style.

Cheers
