Women’s Day Celebration @ IGBS

Workshop Name: Self Defence- “Goshin Jutsu”

Celebrated on 8th March, every year, the significance of International Women’s Day is increasing year after year and has become a custom today. It appears as a celebration of respect, appreciation, love and care towards women.

We at Indira Global Business School believe that today’s woman is no longer a dependent soul; she is Independent and self-reliant in every respect and is capable of doing everything. On the same lines, IGBS arranged a Self-Defence Workshop-“Goshin Jutsu” for all female students and staff members. Goshin Jutsu is a special training program especially tailored for women/children for self-defence. This workshop was conducted by JKNSKAI [KARATE DO INDIA]. They have successfully conducted Self Defence Workshops for many organizations of India and to name a few viz. Symbiosis College Students, eClerx Company, Whirpool Company, Axa Business Ltd, Mindtree Company and many more…

Self-defence is not just a set of techniques, it’s a state of mind and it begins with the belief that you are worth defending. The trainer, Sensei, Ashok Vetal has been teaching this skill to women, as a part of his Right to Safety Programme. Sensei Ashok Vetal and his team motivated the girl students to speak up about such crimes and gave those tips about what to do if they are trapped in an undesirable situation. They also gave the students a demonstration of street fight techniques in real life scenarios. Orientation and discussion were held on safety precautions at road, home, school, public places and also while using internet.

“It was a wonderful initiative on the occasion of International Women’s Day and thus emphasized that the knowledge of self-defence techniques and strategies is an invaluable resource, no matter where you are.” Quoted Ms. Amrita Patkar, First year MBA student of IGBS. All in all, it was an inspiring workshop which extended the confidence about their mental and physical ability to fight back.
