I didn't see any thread on this subject, and I'm not sure if this is really the right area for it (so feel free to move, admin...). Anyhow I wanted to say I've never known much about or followed martial arts much, but I was thinking how my youngest is very small for his age and could be bullied, and since I live in Chota India, I thought gatka might be a wise option. It's increasing our visits to the gurdwara, and our understanding and knowledge of Sikhi. My child loves going to the gurdwara (never have to ask twice!) and it gives me an extra excuse to go. Plus I've made some cool friends there.
