Shri. Balakrishna Potdar came to Hyderabad at the age of 20 and got a job at Karorgir. He started the Youth Training Institution by setting an Akhada at Vivek Vardhani School complex. At the later day, the Akhada was to be shifted due to cancellation of permission by Vivek Vardhani Society. Shri.

Balakrishna Potdar was accompanied by Youth namely Satholekar , Jamadagni, Raghunath Gadgil etc., He was parting Training to Youth such as Lathi, Talwar, Kusti etc.,.

After his passing away, the entire responsibility was borne by Sri. Poojya Noble being Late. Sri.Vishwanath master who indefatiguably did valuable service for almost six decades.
Consequent to death of Sri.Ramanand Tirth, President of HVS, the responsibility of presidentship was held by Late. Sri.L.N.Gupta, the then Principal Secretary, Education Department, Government of Andhra Pradesh.
On acquiring place at Sultan Bazar the society constructed a building and the same was inaugurated by the First Prime Minister of India Sri. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in the year 1953. During the inaugural address, the Prime Minister of India, while eulogising the freedom fighting movement by the institution and National service through Indian Physical Culture activities for the wellbeing of youth, in particular and society of secular character, as a whole, for communal harmony, universal brotherhood, irrespective of region and religion, he ventilated his mind to develop General Education in situation, as an integrated programme with physical Education for the total development of personality of the youth.
