Welcome to Baba Fateh Singh Gataka Akhara

Baba Fateh Singh Gatka Akhara was founded some 20 years ago by Jathe dar Uptej Singh. Uptej returned from India and set out on both a physical and spiritual journey which has born the 5 Gatka training centres that enrich our local communities with the practice of Gatka today. 

After learning the teachings and skill of Gatka in India, Uptej trained the now senior Gatka instructors Amerjit Singh Walia, Baljit Singh Walia, Gurudave Singh and Herman Singh forming the first BFS Gatka Akhara.  

 Today each centre has around 10 - 20 students growing the once BFS Gatka Akhara consisting only of 6 to now a family of some 80 BFS warriors. To contact our BFS Gatka Akhhara's click here.
