About associating with
Vivek Teja said, “I am excited and look forward to an enriching experience with imd1. I have always wanted to share my knowledge that I have collected over the years with the youth and kids of my country. More than learning, learning right is very important and imd1 exactly works on this model. When imd1 approached me to be their Martial Arts Legend, I grabbed the opportunity with both hands, as it was the best way of spreading my knowledge in the right manner. I loved the way imd1 plans introducing Martial Arts to all age groups and with traditional Guru parampara which is key to any form of Martial Art. I am wholeheartedly looking forward to doing some great work with imd1 for the benefit of the society.”
