Afghan girls start martial arts group

(People's Daily Online)    17:14, February 03, 2017

The photo shows a group of Afghan girls practicing Wushu, a traditional Chinese martial art. The girls can be seen stretching and bending and slashing through the air with shiny swords on a snowy mountaintop to the west of Kabul, capital of Afghanistan. Women’s sports are severely restricted in the country, which makes this Shaolin Wushu club for girls a rare exception.

Sima Azimi, the 20-year-old leader of the club, says Wushu teaches self-defense, and it's equally effective for body and soul.
