Nidar Singh shastar vidya

Nidar Singh is the last known living master of the Sikh martial art shastar vidya, the “science of weapons”:

“I’ve travelled all over India and I have spoken to many elders, this is basically a last-ditch attempt to flush someone out because if I die with it, it is all gone.”

He would be overjoyed to discover an existing master somewhere in India, or to find a talented young student determined to dedicate his life to the art.
