His son Aarav too is following his father’s footsteps.
As per sources, Akshay said,“It`s a conscious decision to keep my son away from limelight. I think it is better to keep them (children) away from all this that is seen everywhere in newspapers and all. I want to give them a normal childhood. My son is a brown belt. He has just won gold medal in judo in national championship. I am a proud father. I am happy he is doing this. I want kids should be taught martial arts from school. I do tournaments (of martial arts) where we invite children from all over the world and then even send them to Japan.”
Akshay further added that ,”I am in talks with government to have martial arts as a compulsory subject for boys and girls. I look forward to that day where every student would be learning martial arts in schools for at least three years. It is my dream. I feel this is important than physics, Maths etc. What I understand from martial arts is self discipline, self defence and taking care of your health.”
Well at a time when most of Bollywood actors are investing in cricket and football , Akshay’s initiative towards self defense come as breath of fresh air.
