U Mumba visited the Academy during their Pre-Season Training Camp in Dehradun

Dehradun,June, 2017: While in Dehradun for their pre-season training,  Mumbai’s Pro Kabaddi League franchise U Mumba spent a day at the reputed Indian Military Academy touring 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.

Coach E. Bhaskaran, a retired Army officer himself, shared “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 falllen 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.”

The team began their training camp in Dehradun on 10th June, 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.
