" He practices what he preaches and teaches his son Aarav martial arts."
Mumbai, June 18 - A six-degree black belt holder in martial arts, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar's dream is to make martial arts a compulsory subject in school for both boys and girls, saying it is as important as physics or maths.

I feel a certificate in martial arts is more important than a certificate in physics or mathematics, Akshay told IANS in an interview.

I am in talks with the government to have martial arts as a compulsory subject for boys and girls. I look forward to the day every student would learn martial arts for at least three years. It is my dream, he added.

I do what I believe in. I believe in martial arts hence I promote it, Akshay, who learned martial arts in Bangkok, said.

I want to put my money in it. For me, martial art is not about earning money. It has taught me a lot. I have my own tournament. I invite students from all over the world. I even send them to Japan. I want kids to be taught martial arts in school, he said.

He practices what he preaches and teaches his son Aarav martial arts.

Yes, my son is a brown belt. He has just won a gold medal in judo at the national championship. I am a proud father. I am happy he is doing this, said the actor.
