Leh (Jammu & Kashmir), Aug 01 (ANI): A six day self defence Kung Fu workshop was organised by Live to Love as part of their summer youth programme which concluded at Naro Photang Hemis on Wednesday. As many as 40 young girls in the age group of 12 to 20 years participated in the workshop. 14 Buddhist nuns specialised in Kung Fu also known as Kung Fu nuns from Druk Amitabha Mountain Nepal were called to impart training to these girls. One of the Kung Fu nun said, “With our Kung Fu training the girls are improving in their self confidence and self defense. Girls are not given so many chances due to which they lack confidence. Kung Fu gives them that confidence.” Rigzin, Programme Executive, Live to Love said, “In such situations where crimes against women are increasing if women are empowered and have self defence they can do much better.”
