One who practices martial arts is known as a martial artist. Just to put away a misconception at this time, the martial art which goes by the ‘kung fu’ being practiced in China is actually the creation of the great Indian ‘Bodhidharman’.

He always used his knowledge to contribute to the welfare and progress of people. To carry on the legacy of this very Bodhidharman, a man with full of talent Indian grandmaster ‘Jasbir Singh’ was born. Today Dr.Jasbir Singh does not required an introduction.
