At the age of six, Kanishka Sharma happened to watch the movie, The 36th Chamber of Shaolin. He did not know then that this would be the first source of inspiration for what is today, his life's passion. Shifu Kanishka, as he is known today, is the first Indian to have trained at the famed Shaolin Temple Secular Discipline Union in China. He is the first Indian to have brought the deadly combat system of Pekiti Tirsia Kali to India and also the first Indian to introduce Kali Tactical Combat System to the Law Enforcement, Military and Special Forces. Having a background in Martial Arts for more than 25 yrs, in combat systems like Shaolin Wu gong, Kungfu Toa, Muay Chaiya, Muay Thai , Sanshou and Jeet Kune Do-Inosanto Kali, Shifu Kanishka Sharma is highly specialized in Commando Close Quarter Combat which teaches a practitioner to knock out opponent in 3 seconds. He is specialized in Extreme Close-Quarter knife tactics, Weapon Retention and Disengagement tactics, Bayonet tactics and Safety Baton Tactics and Strategy for Law Enforcement Units. Shifu Kanishka Sharma's remarkable journey began when he decided to give up his corporate job in favour of martial arts which was his passion and what his heart yearned for. Since his training at the Shaolin Temple that began in 2001, he has travelled across the world promoting the cause of the Shaolin Culture of Chan, Wu and Yi (Chan Buddhism, Martial Arts and Shaolin medicine).
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
