Empowering the Self with Self-Defense

RDF has a core vision of educating and empowering the girl child. Over the years, many social and educational programs have been conducted for students and parents on the importance of girl child education and encouraging girls to study, work and become financially able. It is a matter of great pride for the RDF family that many girls have topped not just in academics but in the sports field too. Many students from the 5 RDF institutions have taken up martial arts, with the encouragement of their teachers and parents too!

Therefore, it was gratifying to learn that the Commissioner of Police of Warangal Rural District, Mr. G. Sudhir Babu, initiated the largest self defense lesson at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Warangal. The aim was to make women and college girls more self reliant by imparting key self defense techniques to them.

The RDF VAPV Junior College sent 50 girl students for the program. The students were trained in pairs by martial art experts, getting the individual attention that was required to master these techniques. The session was very well planned and executed. After the day long session, the girls came back to the campus and trained the students who could not attend, on the techniques learnt. The session has given them more confidence and they stated that such sessions should be conducted frequently.
