About KKKKI:

The KKKKI provides its members with the highest level of instruction in traditional Okinawan lineage Karate-Do as taught by Great Great Grand Master Shyamal Paul, in a friendly democratic association. KKKKI is taught and preached in almost all Indian States and students residing in other continents. KKKKI is all about Discipline, discipline, discipline and practice, practice and practice, nothing else. Great Great Grandmaster has always been a great advocate of taking KKKKI to every corner of the country by opening school in rural locations in India so that KKKKI encourages the economically weaker section has an affordable option to learn Karate. Today, there are various schools / clubs of KKKKI which are located in the villages and remote locations of State. Great Great Grandmaster is a strong believer of identifying a budding talent early and giving him / her the right opportunities in life to progress personally and professionally. Besides this KKKKI always keeps the social impacting objectives above all such as the younger generation are healthier, they remain disease free, and teaching a girl child self – defense techniques, or for that matter adopting Karate masters and practitioners (including other styles) during Pandamic / COVID-19 crisis.  

Our organization aims to achieve excellence in its instructors through its own program of training, coaching and refereeing courses. We focus on traditional karate with its self-defense benefits but also encourage successful competition karate for those who desire it. Our principles include respect for the individual, recognition of effort and attainment, participation in the decision making process and high moral and ethical standards. For the benefit of all full contact Karate instructors, practitioners and Karatekas, KKKKI has initiated the creation of “Board of Control for Karate in India (BCKI)”, which is first of its kind to control and regulate the full contact karate championships (both Kata and Kumite) and events. Till date full contact Karate practitioners have always compromised and adjusted to semi contact competitions rules and regulations. 

Kasumi Ki Kan Karate International has three distinct stages of exercises i.e., “Preparatory Exercises”, “Complementary Exercises” and “Supplementary Exercises”. Therefore the training is aligned and also divided into three distinct categories mixing it scientifically to above philosophy of training:

Kihon – basic blocks, punches, kicks and stances

Kata – prearranged forms simulating combat situations                                                                                         

Kumite – sparring

In each category the individual is given instruction at the most basic level until the techniques become spontaneous.

As the student advances technically, they progress physically and develop greater stamina. At the same time they learn more intricate KKKKI Katas along with International level katas and more dynamic forms of kumite.

As the student reaches black belt level, technique, stamina, speed and coordination become natural as a result of intensive practice.
