Jubiliant with the victory, Sampanna Khedlekar, Karate coach, Indus International said, “The students had to train for two hours daily, after attending a rigorous school schedule for almost seven hours. As a part of the training strategy, it was important to provide participating students with the mental tools so that they can learn to manage their own performance and create their optimal level of mental readiness. Strategies such as goal setting, imagery, thought management, and emotional control were scientifically taught through practical exercises during the daily practice sessions. Based on the practice outcomes, the routines were refined during the pre-competition phase prior to the “big event”. Their diets were carefully designed and monitored. All the long hours of training have paid off!”
