Grand Master R. Shekhar

Of Indian origin, Raja Shekhar (9th dan) is the Grand Master of Manchuria Kung Fu. He passed away in October 2014.
Grand Master Shekhar was born on September 7th, so these two weekends will be an opportunity to commemorate his memory together.
He was a direct student of Grand Master Kalai Achony Lee in Hong Kong. His great mastery, his work and his results led him to become the depositary of the secrets of our martial art. Back in India, he founded the International Association of Manchuria Kung Fu, as well as an international training centre in southeast India (Tamil Nadu, near Madras).
Thanks to him, Manchuria Kung Fu is now number one in India, in all styles, in both fight and technique.
The Grand Master has, among other, trained Master Derosière, as well as Master Sathya.

Master Sathya

Master Sathya (5th Dan) is a direct student of Grand Master R. Shekhar. He actively participates in the development of Manchuria Kung Fu and perpetuates Master R Shekhar’s teaching in India. He is the president of the Indian association « Mansuria Kung Fu International ». In 1991 and 1992, he was India’s national self-defense champion. He has also received numerous awards (e. g., R.G.R. Award, Bodhidharma Award, Eyecon award).
In September 2015, he was present at the inauguration of the Beuvry School. Guest of honour of Master Derosière, he will return this year during these « Grand Master’s Memorial Days ».

He is also an important politician in India. From 1996 to 2001, he was chairman of the city of Mamallapuram.

Master Derosière

Master Derosière (7th Dan) is the representative of Manchuria Kung Fu. He was trained by Grand Master R. Shekhar in India and has become, through hard work, one of his closest disciples.
Since the Grand Master’s death in 2014, he has been committed to passing on his knowledge.
In September 2015 (again on the occasion of the Grand Master’s birthday), he opened his own International School of Manchuria Kung Fu in Beuvry, France (62). This school is the headquarters of Manchuria Kung Fu in France, but also in Europe. Today, it is the only place in Europe where instructors are trained and black belts are evaluated.
This year, the month of September will also be an opportunity to meet together in memory of the Grand Master during various events (internships, belt exam, etc.) that Master Derosière organizes.
