Earlier we had reported that Bollywood’s leading action star Akshay Kumar had taken it upon himself to educate women in the form of martial arts. With this intention, the actor had set up a martial arts training school for women within the city. Now we hear that Akshay, who was a professional martial arts trainer before he started acting, is now planning to extend a helping hand to launch more such self-defense classes.
The actor is currently busy promoting his upcoming film Gabbar is Back, the story of a common man waging war against corruption around him. His character in the film sees him create a parallel army to fight against corruption and that has inspired him to teach martial arts to more and more women in the form of free self-defense classes to protect them from crime against them.
Akshay Kumar has already trained 10 Black Belt Martial Artists, and wishes to expand his army that teaches women self defense. Well considering the welfare of Indian women has become a contentious issue, we think it’s a great initiative.
Commenting on the same Akshay says, “I teach Martial Arts to 300 girls every week. From Corporate to media to house maids everyone. But we don’t have enough space. I am going to open more classes in next couple of months. And its all free of cost”.
