THE KUNG FU NUNS OF THE HIMALAYAS. Fighting to empower young Indian females In July 2019, the Kung Fu Nuns of the Buddhist Drukpa lineage held their third annual 7-day self-defense workshop for local females in Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, India. Each morning at 5am, 38 females aged between 6-27 years got up at the Naropa Photang nunnery to follow a strict routine, beginning with the first of three daily 2-hour Kung Fu trainings at 5:30am. Aimed at helping young girls build confidence and physical strength, the workshop entails intensive martial arts and self-defense exercise.
