Vedic Martial Arts Workshop

When we speak of martial arts, common images which come to mind are high-flying kicks, breaking bricks with bare hands, beating up several people within seconds, killing someone with one knock. Thoughts of aggression often accompany while one thinks or speaks of martial arts. But this is all that one sees in movies often made in the West. Martial Arts originated in the East, itís the movies which originated in the West.

What makes Vedic Martial Arts different?
Building muscles is no extraordinary task and can easily be achieved in the gym. Building character along with muscles, developing the mind along with learning self-defense techniques, being aware of your surroundings at all times, being able to handle an intimidating situation while being calm, having aggression which is controlled and most importantly being humble and having humility towards all aspects of creation...that is martial arts in its intended form.

Dhyan Foundation, under the guiding light of Yogi Ashwini propagates martial arts in its truest form, just the way it was taught in the gurukuls of ancient India where it originated.

At over 50 years of age, Yogiji exudes the strength and force He speaks about. The techniques of self-defense and practices taught by Yogiji are in their purest form and under His guidance, the force which the practitioner develops is phenomenal.

Workshop Structure

The workshop is divided into two parts, first involves basic techniques that aim at strengthening & toning the body along with awareness building while the latter then takes the participants through the more advanced stages of vedic martial arts.

Stage I - Basic Training

  • Spine strengthening, as a strong and supple spine is a prerequisite for any martial arts training
  • Rendering flexibility and fluidity in the body through specialised stretches, to build the base for kicks and blocks
  • Muscle building and toning of body through yogic techniques and asans
  • Self-defense basics, which would include coordinated movements of mind and body
  • Awareness building, as martial arts requires alertness of mind and quickness of response. Practitioners will be taken through the time-tested techniques of vedic masters to heighten awareness of immediate surroundings such that one is sensitive to all that is happening within a radius of 10 meters
  • Developing internal force to overcome fear

Stage II - Advanced Stages (after basics have been perfected)

  • Ancient vedic techniques to develop higher senses - increase awareness such that you are aware not just of the immediate surroundings but also of the thoughts of people around
  • Core strength building
  • Kicks
  • Street fighting techniques
  • Fighting with sticks (lathis)
  • Handling knives and blocking techniques
  • The ancient art of mace movement
  • Vedic techniques to harness internal strength to develop force in the practitioner

Requirements
In order to learn the secrets of combat passed down from generations and hold such immense force the practitioner is required to first achieve balance and stability in the body, for which the basic practice of Sanatan Kriya is advised.
