A poster in this regard was unveiled by ASMAA founder and Grand Master G Prakash Rao, along with association members at a programme held here on Sunday. Addressing mediapersons, Prakash Rao said the association was founded on August 18, 2019, with 38 members. Several people have attended the self-defence training sessions conducted by ASMAA in various parts of the State. Currently, the association has over 100 active members, he added.
