About:

Hear the success story of the Bollywood Action Director, Indian Armed Forces trainer & India’s First Shaolin warrior, Shifu Kanishka Sharma.

He completed his MBA & was working for a big MNC when he realized his true passion lies with Kungfu and martial arts and that’s when he left his job to turn his passion into reality and went to the shaolin temple to start his Kungfu training under the Shaolin monks.
Shifu has trained Bollywood superstars like Farhan Akhtar, Shahrukh Khan & Akshay Kumar. Also, he was the action director of the Bollywood movie Don.

Watching ‘The 36th Chamber of Shaolin’ changed Kanishka Sharma’s life. Introduced to the film by his driver, he was so awestruck by the film that he decided to learn the martial arts himself. Starting at the young age of 6, Kanishka has been practicing martial arts for 31 years now, mastering 7 different forms of combat.

He trains the Indian special forces, Indian Army & the Indian Military. He always believed in the theory “Love What You Do” & his love for martial arts was the only success motivation he needed. Also, he believes “If you follow your passion, money & fame will come along”
Starting with Karate, Kanishka went on to learn Kung Fu and Kerala’s Kalaripayattu, followed by the Northern Pai Shaolin style, and the Southern Shaolin style called the 18 Hands of Lohan. He is the first Indian to ever train at the Shaolin Temple, and is now a certified Master himself. Granted the title of Shifu (Master), he has been blessed with the Buddhist name ‘Shi Yan You’, which means ‘perfect’, in recognition of his skills.
