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.
“Honest Living, Remember God, Charity, Sharing, Sacrifice, Humility, Devotion, Equality, Respect, Forgiveness, Compassion, Self-Help, Integrity, and Service. The way of a Warrior : Is Forever Always has been, is now and always will be. “  Baba Fateh Singh Gatka Akhara

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.
