Martial Arts

Gatka

Gatka is a traditional martial art that originates from the Sikh community in India. It is a unique blend of combat techniques, swordplay, and spiritual principles. Gatka has its roots in the rich Sikh heritage and is practiced as both a means of self-defense and a path to spiritual growth. In Gatka, practitioners, known as “Gatkabaaz,” learn to wield traditional weapons like the wooden stick (lathi), sword (khanda), and shield (farri). The art places a strong emphasis on agility, precision, and fluidity in combat, making it an effective martial system.
