Baramulla (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], August 11 (ANI): With an aim to make the martial arts popular, Jabeena Akhtar, a Wushu champion and the first Kashmiri woman to have mastered the sport, is nurturing the young talent in the Kashmir Valley.
Based in the Baramulla district's Tangmarg area, Jabeena won a bronze medal in the International Wushu Championship held in Eravan, Armenia in 2017.
Wushu is a combat sport and is known as the mother of all martial arts. It is quite popular in India, in all the five zones, especially Jammu and Kashmir.
Setting another benchmark, she is bringing laurels for India in Wushu martial art by running her own academy.
Her motive is to empower Kashmiri youth, especially girls and bring up the hidden sportsmanship in them. She has already trained around 600 girls in her academy.
Besides being the general secretary of Wushu Association in Baramulla, Jabeena is also the brand ambassador of "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao" scheme.
She hopes to inspire Kashmiri girls, through her endeavours, to chase their dreams.
Kashmir Valley is home to some of the best sportspersons and athletes that the country has ever produced. (ANI)
