“Zanshin” is a Japanese term and its literary meaning is ‘remaining mind’, which is essential for all martial arts. Nothing but training mind to be alert and aware is the core principle of all martial arts and related training.

Training modules are scheduled by various batches in morning and evening from Sunday to Saturday.
Karate - Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Seibukan sylte
The Karate is affiliated to International Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Seibukan Karate Do India and is being trained by the Sensei Jojo Joseph, 4th Dan Karate. As the knowledge sharing and technical updates we are conducting regular seminars by the patronage of the most senior graded masters and the masters from other styles.
Karate and Kobudo are said to be brother and sisters of Okinawan martial arts curriculum. If the Karate is the empty hand self defence system, Kobudo is the self defence with primitive weapons like six foot staff(bo) , Nanchacku, Sai, Tonfa etc. Without Kobudo training Karate would not be completed as both are complementary each others. Kobudo is also taught by Sensei Jojo Joseph.
Aikido is a Japanese Martial Arts system that focus on the unification of universal energy and it’s method of combat is using the opponent’s energy against himself. The system is mostly associated with joint locks, throws etc. Sensei Jojo Joseph is delivering special coaching on this unique martial art.
