|HISTORY OF GATKA|
|Gatka Punjabi meaning: one whose freedom belongs to grace)|
The first information of this ancient art dates back to 1600, in northern india (during the times of the 6th Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Hargobind Sahib). But its origins are certainly much older. The Sikh warriors have used and perfected in many battles the gatka, making their martial art.

|TECHNIQUE OF GATKA|
|Gatka is a martial art imprinted on the use of weapons. The sword, long and short. The long stick. Flexible arms. Knives, axes, and much more (see picture). Shields are many, of different sizes. Usually you use 2 arms, one for each hand, in all possible combinations. Typical are the sticks with small shields hand guards, that are used in training.|
Physical strength, technical preparation, are as important as the spiritual preparation (and are related to the vast Indian tradition of the guru). Rhythm, grace, fluidity, are the goals to be reached.
The gatka must offer an easy way to learn. Effective with all weapons. Useful against multiple opponents.
