Quetta’s residents are skilled more than anyone else in the country. As per local sources, it has been revealed that Bruce Lee is one of the biggest inspirations behind making arts mainstream in their region. He is, in fact, a local hero. Many also wish to represent Pakistan on the global stage.
Martial arts are traditions of combat and codified systems that are practiced for many reasons. These include self-defense, competitions, physical, mental, and spiritual development, military and law enforcement applications, entertainment, and protecting a nation’s cultural heritage.
In the past couple of years, aspiring young girls have come out of the region. Last year, 15-year-old Malaika Zahid from Balochistan pursued her dream of becoming a boxer. She has been training for the past five years now. Malaika initially joined the boy’s training club as there were no facilities available for women in Balochistan. Her aspiration is boxer Amir Khan who greatly motivated her to become one of Pakistan’s top players.
