The session was inaugurated on Saturday on the campus of Trio World Academy, Sahakarnagar and will continue onto Sunday. Grandmaster Shifuji demonstrated unarmed combat to the gathering of women present and also educated them on the need and the manner one can be alert about their surroundings and respond to any attack promptly.
Grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bhardwaj’s Mission Prahar initiative is a self-defense training program for women which aims to empower one crore women across the country. The mission has already reached out to around 30 lakh women and has been constantly on the move to reach out to more.
“Safety needs to be self driven. It is important for all women to understand that they should be adequately equipped to protect themselves from attacks and not wait for help. Mission Prahar aims to introduce women to the right way to fend off their attackers and stay alert about their surroundings. One woman can pass on the knowledge to many more until it reaches the entire country. I am happy to see the turn out in Bengaluru and hope that what was taught will reach everyone in need” said Grandmaster Shifuji.
Naveen K M, Managing Director, Trio World Academy stated, “We are proud to be associated with Mission Prahar and Grandmaster Shifuji for an event of such importance. We are also glad to see that many women are taking self defense seriously and are willing to put in effort to equip themselves to ward off attacks. I hope that many more women will be able to benefit from this event in the future.”
