SQAY MARTIAL ART FEDERATION – INDIA

TRADITIONAL ANCIENT MARTIAL ART

Martial arts have a long and rich history, with many styles and techniques developed over time for combat and self-defense. In ancient times, religious wars were fought using sword and shield techniques, and many cultures developed their own unique styles of martial arts.

 

India has a particularly rich tradition of martial arts, with many famous warriors and leaders using combat techniques to fight against injustice and promote righteousness. Lord Rama to Rani Lakshmibai, many warriors used their martial arts skills to achieve victory and defend their people.

 

However, in modern times, many of these ancient martial arts are in danger of being lost, as people forget their cultural heritage and traditions. This is why the Sqay martial art was created, as a way to revive the ancient combat techniques of sword and shield and preserve Indian culture and heritage.

 

The Sqay martial art is a competitive sport that uses sword and shield techniques, with the aim of promoting Indian culture and preserving the use of Sanskrit in the language of the game. The name “SQAY” stands for “Sword Quest Among Youths,” reflecting the goal of researching the art of sword fighting among young people.

 

Through the Sqay martial art, the SQAY MARTIAL ART FEDERATION – INDIA aims to promote and develop the sport, as well as provide training and competitions at the national level. By preserving these ancient martial arts and promoting Indian culture, the federation hopes to connect people to their shared history and cultural heritage.

 

Overall, the Sqay martial art is an important effort to preserve India’s rich tradition of martial arts and promote its culture and heritage. By reviving these ancient combat techniques and using them in a modern sport, we can ensure that these traditions continue to be passed down to future generations.

 

PRAVEEN SINGH KUSHWAHA

PRESIDENT – SQAY MARTIAL ART FEDERATION – INDIA

In November 2022, the SQAY MARTIAL ART Federation – INDIA (SMFI) was established with the aim to revive the lost glory of Traditional Sqay martial art and take it to new heights. As the leader of this federation, my primary objective was to ensure that this ancient martial art not only thrives domestically but also becomes a global phenomenon. With the tireless efforts of our players and coaches, as well as the coordinated efforts of my colleagues at Sqay Martial Art India, we have successfully created a new chapter for this traditional sport in the past few years.

 

India, with its population of 1.3 billion people, 60% of whom are under the age of 25, has always had the potential to produce multiple international medallists. This encouraged us to set a goal of winning several international medals and promoting our indigenous sport on a global scale.

 

Through strong and visionary leadership, we have achieved great success in revitalizing the traditional martial art of Sqay. Our federation remains committed to promoting this sport both domestically and internationally, and we are confident that Sqay will continue to thrive under our guidance.

 

Mr. Kushwaha has been promoting Sqay martial arts for over a decade now. He has mentored numerous students, both nationally and internationally, and has won several accolades for his efforts. His dedication towards promoting Sqay Martial Art has not only made him a role model for aspiring martial artists but also a source of inspiration for anyone who wishes to stay connected with their traditions and culture.
