Hence, the DBSKAKKF promises to impart international level quality karate education, since our main motto is to enhance the spirit of martial artists. The DBSKAKKF will follow and award all the training, belts, camps, grading as per international standards removing the biggest barrier of high fee structures, or international travel for all its members.

This organization is registered from Government of Mumbai, Maharashtra, India and the register number is E9506/15/T.

Due to the fact that DADI BULSARA’S KARATEASHIHARA KAI KAN FOUNDATION is an organization which has not become bound by traditions, KAICHO SRINIVAS RAO and members of the Technical Advisory Committee, has been able to take full advantage of the freedom to make changes and improvements. The training methods have been greatly improved and the old style basics have been replaced by training methods in consultation with Sports Scientist, which give better results, in a much shorter time.

In a short space of time, DADI BULSARA’S KARATE ASHIHARAKAI KAN FOUNDATION has spread to many other State in India, and more and more people are showing interest in joining the Organization.

  • A person who is practicingDadiBulsara’s karate can be seen being more self-confident and self-respected, as his or her master makes him or her feel confident that you can do it!

Cardiovascular Health:-DadiBulsara’sKarate training require constant movement, which is great for your heart and your cardiovascular system.

Weight Loss: DadiBulsara’sKarate training can help you shed any extra pounds you’re carrying. The best part about it; you’re more likely to stick with a weight loss program if you actually enjoy the workouts.

Increased Strength: DadiBulsara’sKarate classes use calisthenics and other body-weight exercises as part of a warm-up or cool-down, which can increase your strength.

Improved Reflexes: To compete in DadiBulsara’sKarate you will need to perform various movements, defenses and attacks quickly; what is not obvious is that these speedy reflexes can also translate into other parts of your life. Faster reflexes can help with driving, sports, and many other areas where you need to react quickly to your environment.

DadiBulsara’sKarate are not just about getting stronger or losing weight; martial arts training can also help improve your mind. Here are some of the mental benefits associated with training in martial arts:

Focus: DadiBulsara’sKarate teach you to focus on your body and your actions, while tuning out distractions. This can translate directly into the rest of your life and allow you to stay more focused on the things you need to get done.

Discipline:-DadiBulsara’sKarate teach you to control your emotions and impulses, and require great discipline and years of training to become proficient,.

Confidence:Gaining new skills, being part of a team, and improving your focus and self-defense can all lead to increased confidence.

Stress Relief: Letting out your aggression on a punching bag or opponent can help relieve some stress, but that is not the only way that martial arts help keep stress at bay. DadiBulsara’sKarate teach you to slow down and take things one step at a time; they teach you to accomplish one task completely and then move onto the next instead of taking everything on at once.

DadiBulsara’sKarate is the only program that strengthens all aspects of your health and fitness, makes you mentally stronger and teaches you how to protect yourself and your loved ones – and it has been for thousands of years. It is the best-kept secret of total body functional fitness for adults in the world.Self defense training is one of the best total body workouts on the planet. Most people start to feel the difference immediately and see physical changes in their bodies within weeks. What most people don’t realize (and can’t see) are the physiology improvements to their internal systems.

Improve Heart Health: When taught properly, self defense instruction is physically challenging. The way you move when learning or practicing in DadiBulsara’sKarate varies from otherstyle, but generally the type of exercise is almost identical to interval training. These short, intense bursts of movement and exertion, followed by periods of lower intensity performance are medically proven to be one of the fastest and most effective ways to increase your heart health.

Reduce Systemic Inflammation: Systemic inflammation has been linked to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, dementia and other age-related chronic conditions. Regular physical training releases anti-inflammatory substances that are naturally created by the body. Excess insulin and blood glucose is also inflammatory to the system, so the more you exercise and regulate your insulin and blood sugar levels, the lower your overall systemic inflammation.

Lower Cholesterol:DadiBulsara’sKarate classes help lower your cholesterol in a couple ways. First, losing weight helps lower your bad (LDL) cholesterol levels by stimulating enzymes that move the LDL from your blood to your liver, where it is processed and removed from your system. Next, exercise increases the size of the protein particles that carry cholesterol in your blood, referred to as “lipoproteins”. The smaller lipoproteins are the ones that are bad for you as they can get lodged in the nooks and crannies of your cardiovascular system. Strenuous exercise helps increase the size profile of your blood lipids to the larger, healthier size.

Lower your Blood Pressure: Along with lowering your cholesterol, self defense training helps lower your blood pressure, too.Your heart is a muscle and just like every other muscle in your body, the more you exercise it the stronger it becomes. The stronger your heart the more blood it can pump with less effort and less effort equals a lower blood pressure. For people who already have healthy blood pressure levels, karate lessons can help maintain your blood pressure levels as you age by keeping your weight in check and keeping your heart in tip-top shape.

Regulate Glucose And Insulin Levels:Diabetes and other diseases are linked to levels of glucose, insulin and systemic inflammation.Insulin is a hormone that acts like a “key” that unlocks your cells and allows glucose (blood sugar) into your cells to be used for energy. Your body breaks down everything you eat and drink into glucose, then releases it into your system where it floats around, looking for cells that need energy. Insulin is created in your pancreas; when glucose is created by your system, your body tells your pancreas to secrete the correct amount of insulin to go with the glucose created.Problems start when your body either makes too much or not enough insulin to process your blood glucose. If left untreated, this can lead to type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Strenuous physical exercise helps insulin transport the blood glucose into your cells, regulating your insulin and blood sugar levels.

Boost Endurance: We mentioned earlier that self defense training is intense, very similar to interval training. One of the things that is unique to martial arts is that you get this sort of intense, interval-like training – for thirty to sixty minutes per session. This supercharges your fitness levels as not only to do you condition your short-term performance levels, but you greatly increase your endurance, too. Your body has to adapt to short, intense periods of exercise with brief periods of lower intensity, but done over a long period of time. With your increased endurance comes the ability to stay focused longer, have steady energy throughout your day and no more of those afternoon energy crashes or feelings of exhaustion at the end of a busy day.

Develop Rock-Hard Muscle Tone: When training, everything you do revolves around you using every ounce of your body weight to move and perform your techniques. This type of total body training is very similar to bodyweight calisthenics, which have been used for centuries by the military and athletes to get in supreme condition. Physical training that builds giant muscles that cramp up when you attempt to run across the parking lot doesn’t do you much good – although you may look great. Karate training builds lean, functional muscle that is the perfect combination of strength, speed, size and endurance.

Develop Animal-Like Flexibility: There is a saying in the martial arts about flexibility; “A tree that is unbending is easily broken.”As adults get older, we begin to naturally lose flexibility. If we exercise over the years without working on flexibility our muscles, tendons and ligaments shorten, causing tightness throughout the body. This can lead to problems with balance, range of motion in our joints, pain, lack of mobility and injuries.Unlike other fitness programs, martial arts develop your flexibility as you are training, instead of having separate movements specifically designed to increase your range of motion. Because self defense training teaches you how to protect yourself in various situations using your entire body, your body learns to perform in all directions, on all planes of movement and through full ranges of motion. The more your train, the more fluid and smooth your movements become, like an animal in the wild. Strong, but relaxed and explosive.

Improve Balance: Improving your balance happens when you practice going through the full planes of movement – forward, back, side-to-side and rotational. If you don’t practice working on your balance, it will deteriorate. As we age, becoming unsteady on our feet can lead to falls and serious injury – even death. Like we mentioned earlier in the section on flexibility, martial arts training constantly takes you through these planes as a byproduct of performing the techniques. More than one martial artist can tell you how training helped them prevent getting injured when they tripped or stumbled over something and was able to regain balance quickly before falling.Another skill you learn is how to fall properly in the event you trip, are thrown or tackled. Learning how to fall correctly can be a life-saver and be the difference between simply getting up off the ground or suffering a serious injury.

Melt Away Stubborn Body Fat: Getting rid of stubborn body fat is one of the biggest surprises people get when studying the martial arts. While the focus of training is NOT looking good in your skinny jeans or getting into those clothes that you used to wear when you were twenty pounds lighter, students discover that after a month or two of training, their bodies are changing.According to medical studies published in the journal of obesity, the type of exercise done while training in the martial arts burns 36% more body fat then regular aerobic exercise. This training is the most effective method of burning subcutaneous fat (the cottage-cheese fat directly under your skin, like on your love handles, thigh or buttocks). It also stimulates the release of growth hormone, which helps to continue fat burning even after your training session.

Skyrocket Your Metabolism: Another hidden benefit of martial arts training is the increase in your metabolism. When you are increasing your lean muscle mass, burning fat and building your endurance, you naturally rev up your metabolism. Students often report that they can eat as much or more than they used to eat in the past and still lose fat because their metabolisms are burning calories as fast as they consume them.

Mental Toughness & Focus:When you challenge yourself to do something you have never done before – and you do it – not only do you feel better about yourself but you develop mental toughness and focus.This mental toughness is a form of courage; it is the ability to recognize and acknowledge the butterflies in your stomach when you are afraid of something, facing a challenge or doubting yourself – but getting yourself to take action anyway. It is knowing you can handle anything that comes your way, no matter what.When you are taking your martial arts class, your mind has to be one hundred percent focused on the task at hand. Because of the physical and mental demands of this kind of training it is almost impossible to think about work, family or anything else. The more you train the stronger your mental focus becomes, making it easier for you to get things done at work and at home.

Unshakeable Self Confidence: The most powerful and life-changing benefit of the martial arts comes as a byproduct of the demanding physical training and learning to protect yourself – confidence.As you see and feel your body change, you feel better about yourself and how you look. Knowing that you have the ability to protect yourself and your loved ones gives you a sense of calm and power. When you feel better about yourself, you stand up a little straighter, smile a little more and are more relaxed. You handle the pressures of family and work better, have more energy to tackle daily challenges and have the feeling that no matter what happens, you can handle it.

The Ultimate Self Development Program: When you look at all the benefits of martial arts training, it is hard to find another activity that even comes close. While there are other fitness routines or hobbies that deliver some of the benefits, there isn’t one that delivers what the martial arts does – on top of providing skills that can save your life or the lives of your loved ones.

BELT SYSTEM

The belts are symbols of what to expect from our Training as much as rewards for your efforts. That should act as inspiration and guidance, with progression, one should become aware of the significance of each level, and strive to manifest its nature in both your karate technique and your attitude in daily life.

As a way of further understanding the sense in which the belt color are meant to reflect growth in character as much as growth is technique, a possible interpretation of the symbolism of belt colors are included. THE WHITE BELT:-White belt is the symbol of purity. The new student at white belt level is said to be pure, heart is full of hope, with dedication hole life can be changed, because he/she is completely ignorant of the requirements of the art and utterly lacking in experience of it. The white belt symbolizes the potential of the new student to achieve the other grades.

THE BLUE BELT:- Water adapts and reacts fluidly. Blue belt is the color of the sky and of the ocean. The blue belt shows one whose aspirations have begun to expand to the horizon, improved strength, train with energetic vigor, one whose spirit is beginning to have the depth of the sea but one yet resists his resolve to explore that depth. Stability and control of the body, correct posture, power and progress are built on a solid foundation.

THE YELLOW BELT:-Yellow or gold color of the sun, the color of light, the color of new found riches. Yellow belts fire the power generated from a centered body, now awareness, perception and assertion begin. The yellow belt indicate one for whom the light of the new day has begun to shine. It is the color for one whose spirit, understanding and skill are dawning.

THE GREEN BELT:- Green is the color of growth, the color of the grass and of the forests. The green belt in patience and humility will the balance be found, a new strength and the way forward. The green belt reflects one who has begun to absorb the light, one whose skill and spirit has started to blossom and the bear fruit.

THE BROWN BELT:- Brown is the color of the earth, the color of solidity. The brown belt creativity and sensitivity and reflect the training and self realization. The brown belt expresses one whose technique has become competent, whose mind is fertile and whose spirit is firm. To many, the black belt is a sign that one has mastered the art of karate. However, holding a black belt, while a very impressive accomplishment, does not mean that one has reached the upper echelons of karate skills. Once a person tests into the black belt rank, there are still 10 levels that must be accomplished before he will get his final belt.

DAN BELTS Prior to getting your black belt, you must climb the ranks through the 10 "kyu" levels. The first five levels, or ranks, are signified with colored belts: white, orange, red, yellow, and green. The sixth and seventh levels are signified with a purple belt, and the eighth through tenth levels are represented with a brown belt. After your last brown belt, you'll achieve your first black belt, or dan belt. Your first degree black belt earns you the title of "sempai" or assistant teacher. While this may seem like the end of the journey, it's the beginning of a new one. There 10 dan levels or black belt degrees to achieve. All 10 dan levels require continuous training.

Each level of dan, along with the numerical designation, has a name. The first through fifth levels of dan are designated, respectively, Shodan, Nidan, Sandan, Yodan and Godan. Each of these levels is achieved through continual training; it can take upwards of many years of study and practice to reach the fifth level of dan.

LEVELS SIX THROUGH NINE

Black belt dan levels six through nine are named, in order, Rokudan, Shichidan, Hachidan and Kyuudan.
