The Founder

Sensei Sahadev Barman was born on 27th June,1972 in Siliguri. In 1980 at the age of only eight he, out of keen interest in karate, began to practice this game of Martial Art. He was awarded Black Belt 1st Dan, from Shotokan Karate style in the year 1990. In the same year he participated in All India Open Karate Championship representing North Bengal as captain.

In 1992 he joined Shito Ryu Style and obtained 2nd Dan Black Belt. He participated in National Selection, Mysore, in 1996 to compete in the World championship but most unfortunately he remained outside the National Selection as the ligament tissue of his right leg was affected badly & consequently it took him 2 years to come back to the main stream. While participating in National Selection held in Mysore, India, Sensei Barman was praised and patronized by Shihan Wong Tuang Seng and Shihan N.S. Anwar world famous in Martial Arts.

For the first time he introduced the Shito Ryu style to the plain area and only after his tireless effort this style is now prevalent almost everywhere in North Bengal. A good number of Karate championships was organized by him at several venues. North Bengal championships had been organized under his supervision since 1995 and it continued upto 7th North Bengal championship 2003. Since then he had been teaching and uplifting himself with the students of martial arts with great zeal and enthusiasm. In 2011 Sensei S.D Barman was introduced to Hanshi Mehul Vora in Mumbai, who is 8th Degree Black Belt from U.S.A & 7th Dan Black Belt from Japan, International Kick Boxer, Karv Maga Coach and 3rd Dan Black Belt AIKI JUJUTSU, also President of Nippon, Budo, Sugo and Kudo of India and Shihan Akshay Kumar (The Bollywood Superstar) is the Chairman of Kudo International Federation of India.
