Jammu and Kashmir, a land known for its scenic beauty, rich culture and massive resources, is now also a sports hub. Recently, the Sports Council of Jammu and Kashmir organised the first ever Kashmir division Martial Art Games 2018. The competition held at the magnificent Indoor Stadium in Srinagar. It included a variety of Martial art forms like Judo, Taekwondo, Pencak Silat, Wushu, etc. and was. The competition that began with loud enthusiasm on 13th September 2018, concluded with high spirits on 15th September 2018. This massive competition witnessed participation of more than 5000 children from the valley
“It was a mega event”, said Nuzhat Ara, Divisional Sports Officer, Kashmir.
It was the number of participants that made the event a success and put a smile on the faces of all the sports officers of the state. As the sports council of the state makes sure to keep its youth involved in one or the other competition, the hard work and efforts had been paid off by the spirit and passion of young sportsmen.
This platform has helped the children of the valley to witness a variety of games together and give them a broader perspective of the Martial Art forms, providing them a station to participate and exercise their talents.
Let’s see how our little champions have benefitted from this wonderful initiative of J & K Sports Council:
The video is only a slight reflection of the energy and sports spirit of the young participants and their inspiring coaches. I must admit, the actual ecstasy of the event was of a different level.

At New Age Kashmir we wish all the participants a good luck for their future and wish for their steady growth in their desired game. We hope that the children address the opportunities that are extended to them by the sports council and realise their worth. The state knows and believes that their children have a lot of potentials and are capable to participate at both National and International levels. Thus, they put in all the effort to wing their raw talents and help them take the highest of flights.
