SELF-DEFENSE IS THE KEY KBS International organised a self-defense programme on the occasion of International Women's Day

 With the rise in crime against women, learning self-defense techniques has become a need of the hour. To spread this message among the women of today, Kohinoor Business School (KBS) 

organised a self-defence programme "The Art of Survival" for its female students/faculty and staff members on the occasion of women's Day recently at the KBS campus. 
    Around 20 faculty members and 100 students participated in this workshop. From young girls to middle-age women, everyone learned various techniques of self-defense under the guidance of a martial art and selfdefense expert Dr Sudhakar Upadhyay. 

    Apart from giving the practical training, he also presented few skills to handle stress management, common medical emergencies as well as highlighted the legal aspects and implications in crimes against women, and the related psychology and 

management of emotions. "At KBS we have taken this initiative as we believe that intelligence, good communication skill, smartness is important, but our students should also learn self-defense as it will help to protect themselves and establish their identity," says Dr Bharati Deshpande, Associate Professor & HOD at KBS. 
    In today's era of modernization and globalization as the percentage of working 
women is increasing so is the need and concern for their safety, security and health. "A woman is dynamic in the many roles she plays. Even though women have achieved success in all walks of life; we have simultaneously witnessed a substantial rise in the atrocities 
against women in our society. In Kohinoor Group, the respect and security of women employees are strongly promoted, and therefore we conducted a selfdefense programme that would empower women to face the present challenges," says Monica Eyles, HR manager, Kohinoor Education Trust. 
    The event received a good response. Many students were elated to learn some defense 
techniques for it built self-confidence in them. "This programme was a wonderful gift that one could give to the budding female managers and entrepreneurs. I had a terrific experience as this session groomed us physically, mentally and emotionally, and has made us stronger. Now, I can protect myself, without calling out to people for help," said Pavitra Shetty, KBS management student.
