Shooting comes to Kunskapsskolan International and in a big way too. The occasion was the launch of Olympic Medal Winner Gagan Narang’s Gun for Glory Shooting Academy at Kunskapsskolan International, New Gurgaon. The grand opening of the Academy was attended by a host of dignitaries such as Dr. Amit Bhalla, Vice President- Manav Rachna Educational Institutions, Mr. Kunal Bhadoo, CEO of Kunskapsskolan; among others, apart from shooters, both budding and professional, and shooting enthusiasts.
What made the launch a stellar event was the fact that Ace Shooter Padamshree Gagan Narang conducted a free shooting workshop at the launch of Gun for Glory Shooting Academy at Kunskapsskolan International, New Gurgaon, where children from the age group of 6 years - 14 years participated with unflagging enthusiasm. This is Gun for Glory’s first such academy in North India and will have a 10 mtr. Air pistol and Air Rifle range.
“Sports and co-curricular skill development are an intrinsic part of the daily activities of a student’s life at Kunskapsskolan. We are highly passionate about taking the Sport of Shooting to the next level. Such workshops will encourage many young shooters to pursue the sport. Shooting builds physical and mental discipline, arm strength and focus; it helps exercise the eyesight; advances personal responsibility because it is a foundation for both security and liberty in any family or nation; that besides, shooting promotes courage, confidence and physical balance”, said Kunal Bhadoo, CEO, of Kunskapsskolan Eduventures India.
Speaking at the launch, Ace Shooter Gagan Narang said, “Shooting has been India’s most successful Olympic sport after Hockey. With Indian shooters performing spectacularly in the world sports arenas in the years gone by, shooting now occupies pride of place in the Indian sports annals. It gives me immense pleasure to see budding shooters at the launch and their interest in taking to the sport by wanting to imbibe the intricacies of the sport.”
