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

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?

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

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

Power of Mind

vintage-1418613_640.png

I had been repeatedly focusing upon the Human Mind as its the most unpredictable thing. This quote is a constant reminder to be alert and not feed the mind with negative thoughts.

Human Mind is unpredictable; after all nothing is permanent ~ Koti

Human body has many unconscious processes which are not felt by the individual. These can be broadly put down for better understanding and relating to what I am trying to say:

  • Breathing – many of you do not know that you are breathing or the mere importance of breathing. In deep sleep you are not aware of your breath, your body, place and time
  • Eye hand coordination – the way the eyes and hand coordinate in sync
  • Hand – Leg coordination – while walking or running the beautiful coordination of Hand-Leg

so on and so forth.. These are few unconscious bodily movements which are happening irrespective of your conscious efforts to regulate it.

Deep inside your body there are numerous processes which are taking place constantly – digestion of food, regeneration of cells and muscles, relaxation of body, releasing of hormones for better health, hair growth, nail growth you name it and its happening inside your body.

This entire hard work gets affected if your little mind starts throwing tantrums. Human Mind which is the most powerful has the capacity to make you feel – happy, sad, gives you an electrifying feeling, boost up your motivation, puts you in depression, makes you a leader, makes you feel a looser, makes you think the world has come to an end, makes you feel you are the most blessed, makes you feel you are the best of best and what not.

The choice and option is within – think positive be positive

We behave in a manner which is directed by the little mind and the situations around. The mind needs to be trained and controlled. Yet, we are wasting our time on looking physically good, smart, beautiful, build up muscles, tone up tummy, six pack, hour-glass figure and the list goes on and on and on. The beauty is inside you, feel it and start living it. The day you start controlling your MIND and STOP entertaining negative thoughts you would soon find peace within, you would feel oneness and automatically you would start loving yourself. Many positive spill over are gradually seen and reflected by the individual who starts working on his own MIND. Being positive is not difficult, it needs efforts. It needs discipline, dedication and determination.

We are trapped in MAYA and it constantly pulls us down, makes us compare, makes us feel low and it does everything possible to make us feel miserable. However, once you realize the importance of being positive, importance of meditation, importance of doing SEVA, importance of helping others without any selfish interest, and importance of GOD you would gradually understand how the MIND can be controlled.

We are individuals with half-knowledge and [ass|u|me] things on our own beliefs. Start focusing and be clear – you need to train your mind. For success, for better relationships, for handling pressure and stress, for happiness and to serve everyone with love.

Don’t entertain negative thoughts – kick them up before they come near yourself. Meditate, spend time with positive people, spend time alone, focus on mindful breathing, enjoy the bliss of stasang and pray to the almighty GOD.

For Love,
Anand

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

Empower yourself : Mind over Matter

love-600488_640.jpg

Life has made us consciously or unconsciously dependent upon one or  another thing.  Dependency is right from the materialist stuff, pets to human being.

Dependency upon pets and material stuff for most is the best of all – as they do not retaliate back!

Human being on the other hand retaliates back – fast and furious 🙂 Relationships of any kind among human beings are tested because of the same reason. We all have a limit of tolerance and when its above the threshold we retaliate. Dependency creates major emotional and psychological crisis. It eats up the individual’s space and starts sucking up the energy.

Empower yourself and create a balance within you. It’s necessary that you fight your own fears bravely and overcome. Being dependent upon anyone will delay your progress and success at all levels. Have a constant remembrance to fight your weakness and fear! You will not find the hidden talents which are inside you unless you work on your own self

Sometime back we conducted self-defense workshop for corporate women. The idea was to empower them and raise up the level of confidence, self-esteem and faith. We are happy that we did manage to touch upon several souls. Why don’t you hear them ?

The most significant reason to study self defense is to achieve a sense of self-confidence and mental stability during uncertain times. We often panic, freeze and stop thinking when we are under a state of being attacked. It is a major rule to remember that defending ourselves does not only require physical strength but also intellectual and tactical skills. If the assailant is brawny, there are number of ways you can tackle him/ her with.

It’s always mind over matter.

Connect with us for workshops to empower your loved ones!

Cheers,

Women Self Defense Workshop, Seminar and Classes

Your Ultimate Weapon – Self Defense

If there would be one word to describe the situation in world today it would definitely be ‘unpredictable.’ We are living in the 21st century, still fighting for equality of genders and freedom to make our own choices. But the most beautiful aspect of this situation is the fact that our struggle comprises of the most extraordinary women and men. Our ability to think differently and to unite for a shared conviction is our strength.

But we still have a long journey to make!

One of the prime hurdles of this resistance is the fact that some people choose to respond to our beliefs through cruelty and aggression. And unfortunately the most common scenario we observe in such conditions is violence against women. According to the latest data by the National Crime Records Bureau, 2015, a decrease of 3.1% in crimes against women has been observed, as compared to the 2014 statistics. This 3.1% is an indicator that we still have lots of work to do, and a myriad of obstacles to overcome. The most recent incident of Bengaluru’s mass molestation during New Year’s Eve was an outrageous example about the intensity of crimes against women in India.

The question is what can be done to ensure the safety women?

Apart from observing strict legal laws and strong surveillance setup by the administration, on an individual level we have to use our bodies as weapons.

That’s Right! Self Defense!
So, why is self defense important?

An education in self defense can introduce you to a variety of situations that can occur and motivating experiences of survivors as well. The most significant reason to study self defense is to achieve a sense of self-confidence and mental stability during uncertain times. We often panic, freeze and stop thinking when we are under a state of being attacked. It is a major rule to remember that defending ourselves does not only require physical strength but also intellectual and tactical skills. If the assailant is brawny, there are number of ways you can tackle him/ her with. It’s always mind over matter.

If you practice religiously self defense can not only lead to a fitter body but also to the virtue of self discipline. During insecure conditions your training will always be able to provide you with a sense of direction and clarity. It will teach you to be agile and a smart problem solver. It will guide you to trust your instincts and transform you into a viscerally aware person.

The best part about learning self defense is that you can always utilize it if some other person happens to be in danger. The amazing feature of the training is that it does not only make you self reliant but also alters you into a better person.

And to help you get started the Anand Koti Team is conducting Self Defense Workshops to celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day by promoting women’s safety. These workshops are a unique amalgamation of martial arts and spirituality. The purpose is to introduce women to techniques and methods that will help them function more positively in their everyday life. The workshops provides insights and trains for better ergonomics resulting in lowering of body pain and better body posture. An amazing platform to learn as well as discuss and share crisis of security.

The Self Defense Workshops are conducted by Mr Anand Koti, a skilled martial artist himself with 19 years of practice. Mr Koti has positively impacted the lives of women and children through his amazing non-profit endeavor The Colorss Foundation.  For the past 11 years he has been imparting knowledge about martial arts, and this year he continues his commendable effort for shaping a better and a secure society.

We welcome organizations who would like to arrange a Self Defense Seminar with our team for working women, as well as individuals who are interested to organize a workshop for women from all walks of life. We aim to create an honest and a fulfilling experience for all our learners, and to deliver our best attempt to educate and empower them.

LIFE – without a spiritual life?

ayutthaya-1552930_640.jpg

Spirituality does’t mean to give up on LIFE, its the energy that helps you grow and teaches you how to LIVE. Many-a-times people get lost in this journey. For me, I was lucky. At every junction of life, someone was always around to guide me 🙂 God has been great.

Folks who know me are aware that I am an Introvert person. Who prefers to talk less and enjoy the nature! Hardworking, creative and full of energy [well only when I am working] at times am moody. However, the point is not about me as an individual or even talking about it. Life has been such a wonderful journey, learning new things, traveling, taking risks and most important; being aware that the real essence of life is ‘Spirituality.’

The positive attitude towards life has always helped me. As a martial artist we have been teaching self-defense to women across different corporate houses. Teaching the housewives and girls in societies and provide online training programme.

In this journey of teaching we too learned many things, we upgraded our curriculum and we made changes as per the need of hour. The objective of our workshops is to address the mind – body and soul. To make it complete, now our workshops are packed with the divine amalgamation of meditation and karate. These workshops are designed as per the need, time, age, body and requirement. These workshops requires time till the individual can feel the difference within. You as a participant need to have patience and trust yourself. Constant remembrance to our mind, body and soul is required to grow. Our projects have shown commendable changes within. Email us if you want to have a workshop.

We do provide these workshops to the disadvantaged communities and personally I feel they should not be neglected. The good news is that we provide it for FREE to them.

Passion never looses its charm.

All these workshops are provided through our non-profit Colorss Foundation. In past our projects has shown positive results. Recently one of our project Mission 1000 is 2016 finalist at Project Inspire the multi-award-winning initiative presents 18-35-year-olds worldwide with an opportunity to win a US$25,000 grant to assist an existing organisation which supports women and girls in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East or Africa. Project Inspire: 5 Minutes to Change the World is a 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 and the Pacific.

Established in 2014, Mission 1000 is a project that empowers women by aiming to teach self-defense skills to 1000 young girls, at no cost to them, every financial year. We are now holding workshops, which are led by the founder Anand Koti. Every workshop is now able to teach 50 young girls. Koti, who has a 2 black dan belt in Karate and a green belt in Kobudo, trains these girls to kick, punch and block assaults from sexual attackers. He also teaches them to meditate and how to develop a calmer and more focused disposition.

You can read more about the project here.

Life is continuous school where you learn – unlearn every single second. Consciously or unconsciously we learn many things. We as humans unconsciously imitate others in certain areas for which the individual strongly feels connected.

Unwanted advises:

  • Positive approach – always have a positive attitude – around the good – the bad
  • Trust yourself – utmost importance: do not get carried away with situations/peer pressure
  • Patience – without this you will never be able to grow and enjoy life
  • Hard Work – do not shy away from hard work. There is no easy way!
  • Faith – it rules
  • Attachment – do not get attached with the outcome of your hard-work
  • Meditation – spend sometime alone and practice meditation
  • Love & Respect – love yourself and respect – treat others as you wish to get treated

Enjoy yourself to the fullest. Live in the real world and don’t miss the opportunity to help others.

For Love,

Anand

Is 21st Century cold-blooded!

Brain-drain is the upcoming threat that needs to be taken care of. The current situation has pressed hard upon the individuals. It has weakened the self-confidence and the real ‘self’ is lost. It makes the individual live a mechanical life – tick tock tick tock, till the time it can tick-tockkkk…..

Take it easy and yes, its easy. Getting going and let the body move. 

30-45 mins of exercise everyday is going to boost your immunity, its going to help you be strong and look gracious. Physical Exercises have noted benefits at physiological and psychological level.

Make a habit of having a healthy lifestyle. It would not only help control your weight, but enhance your mood and increase energy. Healthy lifestyle would also help keep few of the health problems away. It would specially protect your heart.

We have introduced a fusion of karate and meditation to upbeat the stress of 21st century. Our program has got meditation, karate, fun, self-defense, reflections and lots of love. 

Healthy Lifestyle has never been difficult. Its just the effort you would have to take for healthy mind, body and soul.

Say no to unhealthy lifestyle

 

21st Century has been very demanding, rude, harsh and has literally ripped apart the human mind – body and soul of the individuals. The family bonding, togetherness and marriages have gone for toss.  As always, I am quoting it again,’ Don’t let the situations rule you?’ 

Your efforts for a healthy lifestyle will only help you and your family.  A balanced individual is successful.  If you need help, we are around.

For love as always,
