Mr. Tushar Pawar, the sports teacher and coach, is happy with the way his champs have performed. “They have been practicing really hard for the past 7-8 months,” he says. “The regular practice of focused pad workout, body bending, kick balancing, running, meditation and fighting practice has helped to improve their game a lot.”
