Shastrang means 'a body becomes weapon'. This word is derived from Sanskrit words 'shastra' (weapon) and 'Ang' (body). It states that in case of hostile situation, use your body as a weapon to protect someone. Having the base of Sanskrit, it is clear that it is an Indian martial art.
Grandmaster Bikram Singh said, “As we are aware of present scenario, at one side, COVID-19 has been raised as a major problem worldwide, where fitness is deteriorating day-by-day and on the other side, crime is touching its extreme level. Today, self defense and fitness should be the prime choice to overcome these limitations. Now-a-days, moving out from homes is a great challenge as everyone is scared of the virus. People are still going out, however children remain in the home due to the pandemic. Continuous online assignments and no exposure to any physical activity are making them lethargic and weak. Even people who work from home are also not able to spare out enough time for their health.”
