Mark your calendars, folks in the UK – Shifu Kanishka Sharma is coming to Leicester in 2015 for the Shaolin Kung Fu Summer Camp! Shifu Sharma holds the distinction of being the first Indian to study at China’s legendary Shaolin Temple, bringing his knowledge back to his homeland to establish the Shaolin Temple of India, as well as being called on for fight choreographer duties in high profile, Bollywood action movies!
Over the course of his visit, Shifu Sharma will pass on his knowledge of all things Shaolin, from meditation and combat skills to how both can be utilized to strengthen oneself in all areas of life. He will also take students through his own combat art, which he’s dubbed the SHIELD Combat system, merging the power of Shaolin martial arts, Pekiti tirsia Kali, Muay Thai, and Jeet Kune Do. If you live in the UK or plan on stopping by in the New Year, it’s an opportunity you can’t afford to miss! For a quick peek at what the training will be like, check out Shifu Sharma’s display of Shaolin Duanda (his wardrobe in that video may look slightly familiar, as well!)
