The GATKA GURU SHABAD SYSTEM method is based on four main points: EFFECTIVENESS, SECURITY, COMMUNICATION, AWARENESS.
- EFFECTIVENESS: The Gatka is a weapon and bare-handed system aimed at the protection of one’s person, the defenseless and the weakest. Everything is aimed at a victorious conflict.
- SAFETY: The practice must not only safeguard the person and put him in a position to operate safely but also take care of the practitioner’s physical well-being.
- COMMUNICATION: The practice must help highlight and understand the relationship between the science of communication and the art of Gatka in the paradox of successful communication / victorious conflict.
- AWARENESS: The practice must contribute to one’s knowledge and to develop empathy with people, the environment and the rhythm of one’s heart.
