Better mental health: Karate and Meditation

hijab-3310184_640.jpg

It’s substantial that the awareness of karate and its in-depth power is being felt by everyone. Karate is nothing but it enlightens you to talk with oneself and give you the authority to defend yourself. It’s an open hand technique which in combinations and perfection is a lethal weapon.

The process of self-realization of what you need is what’s more fundamental. In this race of performance, pressures, compromises, adjustments and stress – we forget our own self! We often tend to loose the focus of ‘who we are’ !  and it is left unattended till we can carry the luggage! We, at www.anandkoti.com  strongly believe “Every Problem has a Solution”

Meditative moments in between the Karate workshops makes our curriculum truly special.

Competition has increased, humans are now working more like machines and are attempting to be multi-tasking. To this change – we present you change as well:) At-least to transfer the balance within you!

We provide a unique combination of Karate and Spirituality that would be of your interest. The combination is useful to release the stress, strengthen the body -mind and soul. It prepares you how to handle your body respectfully and when called for it can act like a weapon. We have Self-defense workshop with a mix of #meditation and #karate. We would prepare you in 3-4 self-defense techniques and also help you relax and induce you introduced to your spiritual journey. Your questions about spirituality are also addressed.

Anand Koti focuses upon and promotes the innate values of Karate [self-defense] – Bonding, Management and Security through his workshops. These three virtues he has deeply instilled in himself and hopes to deliver the same to his students.

Women in business and home| Don’t mess

nature-3106213_640.jpg

She is ultimate: accept her presence and power

Women’s day is at the corner and everyone is gearing up! With series of events lined up to cheer up the existence of womanhood. Appreciate! Why can’t this respect and cheer be alive forever? The craze will be alive for month and then fade out. Department wise people would be busy to make and come with creative games, themes, workshops and treats. We have also conducted many self-defense workshops on this occasion and would be doing it again. To respect someone it needs courage and specially if its a woman in your team. They bring in energy and enhance the lively environment around you. There are so many organization which have high respect and regards to the women staff. She creates a great deal of difference in a family, institute, organization and nation at large. 

A woman completes you [you=man]! Literally she does! What are you looking for?

However at the same time, there are so many who disrespect them, their brith, their success and their presence. Sometime we need confirmation to ears, to mind and to heart. Ego kills and will destroy you one day. We need the society to be more mature and open minded. Recently I came across a post on The Guardian. It asked its readers for their views and thoughts about what difference a women can make in the economic development? You should definitely read for yourself to believe the importance of investing in women and respecting them. Women and business: the heart of economic value creation.

If the women creates such great value to an organization, think hard and realize how important she is in our society, families and in your own life! 

Appreciate the presence of women around you. Celebrate it every now and then. A day is less to celebrate her…. her greatness, kindness and love. 

Cheers and Love,

Anand

Passion in Everyday Life!

live-511556_640.png

Are you Living your life for real?

Self-Defense – Martial Arts is not so popular as it should be. Is this a case of poor  marketing for Martial Arts or the Self-Defense or human mind-games? Whatever may be the reason; this sport has got tremendous power to change the person in training! There is a long list of Self-Defense courses available. However at this point of time – I would be talking about our program!

The kind of training that is being provided by us [www.anandkoti.com] is unique in its own way. We focus on many areas which are required to make you physically as well psychologically strong. Self-defense is a package of many things, which is required to be learnt by the individual. The posture, form, power, technique, presence of mind, eye-contact and  many more. Dedication is mandatory to master this art. Let me remind you, this is no rocket-science. It’s just how strong your mind is to learn Self-Defense!

Our habit of taking things for granted and being unmindful is the root cause of our self created blockage. Leading to poor time-management, failure to identify the right opportunity, loosing out on best deals and not the least frequent tensions in relationships. Most of us are not enjoying their personal life, maximum time is being spent doing things which are our responsibilities. Is there a passion in your everyday life, ALIVE!!!

We have been working on a possible solution. Since quite sometime and over the years we have developed a special curriculum ‘SELF Confidence Booster’ Module that particularly addresses the most common issues that are surfacing around. i.e stress, confidence, motivation, self-esteem and more. We have a fusion of Karate, meditation, music and the magic of ‘self’. This fusion truly uplifts you with surprise, will bring into your notice the areas that was being neglected by your good self. Until you try for couple of days you can’t understand the difference or positivity felt inside. You can’t even feel it by reading reviews, or blogs or watching YouTube or even reading this article. The gush needs to be real to be felt by the body, mind and soul. You will thereafter start enjoying your life. You will then start living your life, for sure. No matter what you do, you will live for real. 

Don’t learn or train Self-defense with an eye that you might need it! Just learn it because you should know how powerful your empty hands are! You should know your value, you should upgrade yourself with the necessary techniques which would help you succeed in life. This is something that you should include in your life-style.  Online or Offline. Contact us if you need to be trained!

Stay healthy,

Cheers

Kindness = Heart – Mind

incense-2042096_640.jpg

LOVE IS LIFE

Change is constant and the impact is not seen immediately; with time the impact is seen. One act of kindness everyday will help you withstand all the pressure, stress and tensions of life, job, relationship and the ultimate to sustain your good self.

There is a magical twinkle of doing something good for others. The content that you would receive just by doing one act of kindness will help and protect you from the negative impacts of change. Your emotions would be controlled, your thoughts would be tamed and you would feel happy about yourself.

We, are ruled by our mind. It only puts us in a situation and a condition which never lets us sleep in peace. We are always in pain, bothered, pressurized, jealous and never feel proud about our-self. Kids are an outstanding example of how to live life. They are happy, sad, cry and innocent – but the very next moment they are again happy and enjoy themselves. Kids don’t have ego, its not developed and it doesn’t allow its mind to take control of its life. Kids think from heart, they do everything from their heart and the heart is always pure and unbiased.

Your one act of kindness, touches your heart and this is the place which should be nurtured. Just feel that moment of time; when someone had touched your heart! Stay in that emotion, enjoy it and share this emotions with others who can enjoy the emotions of being loved.

The only truth deep down your heart: is to be loved and to be loved!

Your one act of kindness everyday will help you end your day in style, in content and will protect you. Sounds stupid! Yes, it is! Listen to your heart and let it flow.

Be loved and give love,
For Love,
Cheers.

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

Anand
