TRICHY: Shedding light on women empowerment, the Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) in association with the Students’ Council of NIT-Trichy organised a two-day workshop at National Institute of Technology (NIT) Trichy was on Wednesday.
The two-day event, which saw over 500 take part, served as an eye-opener for many who thought self-defence is all about physical strength. Sponsored by the institute’s technical education quality improvement Programme (TEQIP), the workshop focused on empowering women mentally and physically through its carefully crafted training sessions.
The programme was titled ‘Workshop on self-defence, safety awareness and psychological empowerment for women against crime’. There is a need for women to have a strong mind and a sound personality to be able to handle challenging situations, said Franklin Joseph, CEO of the Indian Institute of Special Tactics and Combat Sciences (Bengaluru).
“Self-defence is not a measure of physical fitness, rather it is about a strong mind and a sound personality,” he said. Speaking at the valedictory session, Trichy Range DIG V Balakrishnan said that women need to be mentally tough and should practice self-defence tactics daily.
NIT Trichy director Mini Shaji Thomas urged students to learn self-defence tactics through practice and advised the students to learn something useful for tackling real-time situations.
