Martial Art Wushoo, an asset for every eve

In todays world when unpleasant incidents like abduction, rape, chain snatching and teasing are on the rise, a martial art named Wushoo is popular among girls in Jharkhands Dhanbad District.

Dhanbad (Jharkhand), May 20 : In today's world when unpleasant incidents like abduction, rape, chain snatching and teasing are on the rise, a martial art named 'Wushoo' is popular among girls in Jharkhand's Dhanbad District.

Girls are being taught new self-defence tricks. The girls are enthusiastic about acquiring self-defence skills.

"Wushoo is an art of self- defence which increases our self-confidence. I want all girls from Jharkhand to take part in it and achieve excellence so that they can protect themselves and others also," said Reema Dutta, one of the students.

Since anti-eve incidents have also become a regular feature in smaller towns and are not confined to cities alone, girls and women Wushoo stand to gain in the long run.

"Now crimes are increasing in small cities like Dhanbad also. I want that not only Dhanbad but every girl of Jharkhand should learn this art so that they can protect themselves and do not remain dependent on others. They can face this situation anywhere, at home or outside, sometimes with known persons also. So it is very important for them to learn this art," said D A Chettal, the principal of the school.

According to Coach Pinki Singh, whoever is trained in Wushoo, can defend oneself effectively.

"Wushoo is a Chinese martial art. Karate, Judo and Taekwando are incorporated in it. Kicks, punch and throwing are all the works in it. So, it is a complete martial art," said Singh.

Wushoo is national martial art of Chinese origin and can be learnt and practiced as a recreational sport, similar to Judo and Karate.

Interestingly, Wushoo is one of the events at the next Olympiad being hosted in Beijing.
