It is a known fact, before Akshay Kumar started acting, he was a professional martial arts trainer. Now, the 'khiladi' hero has launched an initiative to train women in free of-cost martial arts classes that teach them self-defense. Currently, more than 300 girls are already part of these classes in Maharashtra. He is now planning to extend a helping hand to launch more such self-defense classes.
Akshay is currently busy with the promotions of his upcoming action flick, 'Gabbar Is Back'. It is the story of a common man waging a war against corruption around him. Also, His character in the film sees him create a parallel army to fight against corruption and that has inspired him to teach martial arts to more and more women in the form of free self-defense classes to protect them from crime against them.
The actor has already trained 10 black belt martial artists. He wishes to expand this initiative, considering that the welfare of Indian women has become an important issue.
Akshay says, "I teach Martial Arts to 300 girls every week. From Corporate to media to house maids everyone. But we don't have enough space. I am going to open more classes in next couple of months. And its all free of cost"
We appreciate his efforts for the same!
