Caning of Sri Lankan female army recruits

This two-and-a-half-minute video clip consists of discontinuous extracts from a longer film, showing what are claimed to be female army recruits undergoing what appears to be combat training in 2013 or earlier. They are being supervised by male instructors wielding sticks.

    Arguably this is not really "corporal punishment"; rather, it is being used to "encourage" the recruits to make better progress. Occasional random strokes of the cane (in fact just a switch from a tree, not a proper rattan) are seen to be applied to the soldiers' clothed buttocks.

     The film is a bit jerky, and partially silent.
