Guwahati: Thang-Ta, a martial art from Manipur, will be showcased for the first time at the Khelo India Youth Games 2022 at Panchkula in Haryana.

However, the traditional martial art – Thang (sword) Ta (spear) – is not just about fighting. Artists are trained in sword fighting and sharit-sharak (unarmed combat). Their holistic development is ensured by: sajen kanglon (exercise), dangouron (spiritual arts), ningsha kanglon (breathing exercise), layeng kanglon (naturopathic education) and hirikonba (meditation).
