“ARE YOU MORE INTERESTED IN COACHING, REFEREEING OR MANAGEMENT?”
 
Its pleasure to share that my superior heads and my martial art disciples appealed me to progress in the field of Sports Administration and management, around 35 years ago, they entrusted good faith in me and since then I am always desired to handle technicalities and adequate environment of the game.
My grown up students are now well qualified in coaching and produced many medal winning players for India. I am always introduced as Head COACH for all COACHES and it is true love to me. My personal opinion is that God has equipped me to handle all possible aspects of the game and I can better demonstrate and justify my energy globally with referring and management opportunities.
 
“WHAT IS YOU VISION FOR KURASH IN YOUR COUNTRY?”
 
Kurash is the fastest growing sport in India and International Kurash Association is rapidly gaining popularity amongst sportspersons and teams. As a team leader my priority is to maximize no. of participants ranging from child to adults to secure medals from cluster to International competitions. We are developing many new training centers with better facilities for school and university students, as well as Kurash shall be on top priority for self-defense of common people and armed forces or police.
 
“FINALLY HOW IS CORONA AFFECTING KURASH NOW IN YOUR COUNTRY?”
 
The beginning days of COVID-19 Lockdown in our country supposed us to empower our nationwide clubs and coaches with an approach of player’s monitoring on-line via internet and other medium of communications for core fitness training at home while maintaining physical distance as per health guidelines. Indian scholars of Kurash happily learnt and they are still performing many indigenous, calisthenics and body weight exercises for fitness during close down of sports complex.
 
We were ready to host World League Games and Junior and Cadet World Championships which is withheld due to CORONA.
 
We always realize that “THE SHOW MUST GO ON” in all circumstances and we promise to host all pending training camps, seminars and competitions in future or as directed by International Kurash Association.
  
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR VALUABLE TIME.
“Special thanks to Mr. Reza Nassiri, Technical Director of International Kurash Association.”
