The Story

Tenzin Pema at 22 is the first Tibetan female Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter and a Wushu player. It is Pema’s dream to be the first Tibetan representing India at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games in Wushu sports. In June 2015, Wushu was shortlisted as part of eight sports proposed for inclusion in the 2020 Olympic games.

She has been representing India in national and international matches. Yet she proudly protects her Tibetan identity and nationality by holding on to her Identify Certificate (IC) issued by the government of India.

Pema won the bronze in Muay Thai in the World Asian Championship held in Thailand earlier this year. Muay Thai is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. The Tibetan National Sports Association (TNSA) and other donors helped cover her costs for the Bangkok tournament.

TNSA is once again seeking generous contributions so Pema can get the requisite training and enter the championships, which will take her closer to her Olympic dreams.

Pema is a unique sports personality and is breaking new grounds for women in sports, especially for Tibetan women. She is currently undergoing rigorous training for Wushu in New Delhi. Pema’s participation will bring glories to Tibet and India and inspire other youth.

The TNSA was formed in 2002 and is registered under the Indian Societies Act XXI, 1860 and aims to empower Tibetan youth in the tough world of sports and encourage individual sport talents. TNSA makes official representation of Tibet in various tournaments within India and abroad.
