Self Defense Program
Life of every individual is precious but unpredictable. Self-defense helps you to be prepared for unexpected situations and aids us to develop mental and physical health. Be protective, and try to protect others in adverse situations. In metro cities, like Mumbai and Delhi attacks on women are more common but it doesn’t mean that girls of small cities and village are safe.
