Make martial arts compulsory in schools
Actor Rani Mukerji is in favour of making martial arts and other self-defence methods compulsory for school children to help them fight for themselves and also stay fit, Zee News reported.
“Like we learn Hindi, chemistry and other subjects, I think we should get karate, taekwondo or any other kind of martial arts and make it compulsory for school children right at the age of three or four,” the 34-year-old star said on Tuesday at the Mumbai Police – Women Interface, a programme organised to increase self-awareness about safety among women. Rani further spoke about the importance of fighting back a criminal.“The self-defence that we learn from childhood will help us be fit and it would also impart a self-defence skill in times of crisis.
