President – Praveen Singh Kushwaha (Madhya Pradesh)




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.
