With increased stress at work place and sedentary lifestyle taking a toll on their health, more and more young IT professionals are taking to martial arts to keep them fit both physically as well as mentally.
Gyms help train an individual to keep the body fit, but for those working in IT industry, there has to be proper training as per their work culture and the martial arts meets their requirements and boosts their self-confidence, says an expert in MuayThai, a martial art form of Thailand.
"Practicising regular exercises would not help the body to stay fit, there has to be training as per their body and most importantly their work culture", All India Pro-Muaythai and Mixed Martial Art Association Founder-President J Keshav said.
Normally techies work more than 12 hours a day in one place and hence require more than exercises to overcome the stress, he told PTI.
Keshav, who has been teaching Muaythai and other forms of martial arts for the last 25 years here, said increasing number of IT professionals were attending his courses.
The objective of the programmes offered by his association is to equip the participants in practical self-defence techniques and fighting skills and develop mental strength that can be readily utilised when there was a need, Keshav, who has also trained some film artistes, said.
