Gatka , Sanatan Sikh Shastar Vidiya, Shastar Vidiya, Shaster Vidya
Gatka Punjabi: ਗਤਕਾ, gatkā , is a defensive and offensive Sikh martial art associated with the Sikhs (but open to anyone) that focuses on infusing the physical martial art with both the spiritual and mental. Gatka is also the name of a stick used for practicing sword fighting. Gatka originated in the Punjab region and was used by Sikh armies & forces against the Mughals, primarily in reaction to oppressive or aggressive policies. Gatka is rarely used in combat today, and has evolved into a sport and exhibition form shown at Sikh festivals. Gat: means grace, liberation, and respect in one's own power. Ka: means one who belongs or one who is part of a group.
