Kicking it Mumbai: Alternative martial arts scene
Martial arts such as Karate and Judo have been in Mumbai for years, but post-liberalized India has opened doors to newer ways to get a kick from a workout. Along with these martial arts from various corners of the world including Korea, Brazil and Europe comes a culture, not necessarily of strict discipline but that of camaraderie, sportsmanship and teamwork.
