Sima Azimi, the 20 year old, leading the practice session, is optimistic despite the challenges. Azimi learned the sport while living as a refugee in Iran. She has won a gold and bronze medal in competitions in Iran. She says wushu teaches self-defense and is really effective for body and soul. After returning to Afghanistan, encouraged by her father, she started The Shaolin Wushu club in Kabul. She was criticized for practicing sports as women. She receives threats and warning letters saying sport is a mistake for girls. But Sima is not giving up, despite these obstacles, she continues to teach. Her prime objective is gender equality between men and women in Afghanistan and thats why she is calling all girls to break down the cultural barriers and join her in promoting Wushu. She says women are strong and can bring positive change only if provided with opportunities.
