Mumbai’s Pro Kabaddi League franchise U Mumba spent a day at the reputed Indian Military Academy in Dehradun, where they are undergoing pre-season training. The team toured the 206 acre campus, including the IMA Museum, which displays artefacts of historic importance as well the War Memorial, that pays homage to the fallen heroes of the academy.

The academy, known for a training regime that is both physically and mentally gruelling, grooms all trainees to be future military leaders for the country, and was the ideal location for the team visit.

 

“I spent 32 years in the army, which made this visit even more special for me. It is always humbling to be at a place that respects our fallen heroes and reminds us that each and every one of us, needs to give our everything in whatever we do. We always need to give it our all,” coach E. Bhaskaran, a retired Army officer himself, said.

The team began their training camp in Dehradun on June 10, with the key focus being on fitness as the team faces its longest and possibly most competitive Pro Kabaddi season yet. After narrowly missing out on a place in the knock-out stage last season, three-time finalists U Mumba, and Champions of Season 2 are training to give it their all.
