Sri Venkateswara University authorities have decided to provide self-defence training to all women stakeholders, including students, research scholars, teaching and non-teaching staff at its Centre for Martial Arts. Vice-Chancellor W. Rajendra on Monday said that the centre would stand as an exemplar to other varsities.

For men too

“Men will also be provided training, as they have a vital role to play as a spouse or brother in rescuing women in critical situations,” G. Sudarsanam, botany professor and the centre’s director told The Hindu . The centre will also train interested women and shape them as instructors to be deputed to other colleges and universities. Interested persons can contact 99890 53632 to get enrolled. — Staff Reporter
