Every martial artist has a tale to tell about how they discovered their art, the journey it has taken them on, and how martial arts have changed their course of their life. But the story of Indian martial artist, choreographer, film director, and now martial arts creator, Deepak Das is a particularly special one.
Das was born in north-eastern India and began training in Chinese martial arts as a youth in 1988. It quickly became his passion and he spent the next ten years mastering various disciplines. He claims to specialise in more than 20 different forms of martial art including Wushu, Taiji and Karate. Das is also the only Indian who has trained in internal Martial Arts in China’s Wu Dang Mountains, the spiritual home of Taiji.
