"It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result." Mahatma Gandhi

Master Lal Daswani

Chief Instructor / 6th Degree Black Belt

Before training in Mano-Mano Sikaran, Master Lal was exposed to various other arts.  As a child, he soon found that these arts did not offer the excitement that he was looking for.  It was at this time that he met a master in Mano-Mano Sikaran.  Master Lal formally began his training in Mano‑Mano Sikaran in 1986 under the tutelage of Senior Master Vicente Ferrer.  In Mano-Mano Sikaran, he found a system that integrated all aspects of martial arts!

Caroline Proulx

Instructor / 2nd Degree Black Belt

Caroline started training in Mano-Mano Sikaran with Master Lal in 2003.  Having never practiced martial arts before, she enjoyed the diversity of training that was taught to her.

As a mother of 4 children, Caroline is always busy and on her feet.  The practice not only provides good physical activity and increases her stamina, but also allows her to spend quality time with her husband and 4 children!

Sarah Muirhead

Instructor /  2nd Degree Black Belt

Sarah has been training with Master Lal since 2004. Through Mano-Mano Sikaran, she was introduced to a newer, more fun way of exercising! As a student, she is always sitting in class and not getting much physical activity. Martial arts has allowed her to stretch and become more physically fit.

Leah Muirhead
