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!
