Asia’s first Black Belt Lady.

Sangeeta Jadhav from Solapur was the Asia’s first Black Belt achiever in 1988 in ladies when she was 18. From 1988 to 1990 there were no more competitors in ladies, so she had participated in men’s group and got Gold Medals in sequential 3 years. Although she was mother of two children’s, she participated in Germany and defeated 120 competitors in 1999. In 1986 she was elected as Indian Team Coach. Sangeeta & her Husband also wrote a famous book “RANRAG” on Ancient Warrior Art of India.
Now days she is well known in Solapur as social worker. She is the founder member of Sanskruti Pratishthan.
