I started training with Christopher Fernandes for physical fitness in 2001. When I started, I hadtwo major concerns1. Whether the exercise would benefit my sport whether it would help me to achieve my form in thecompetitive world of target shooting and2. whether my acute cervical spondylitis would be able to take the strain of the activity.

LATEST WORKSHOP & TRAINING
2018 Nitya Gurukul and Sevangee
WHY TO JOIN SEVANGEE
Sevangee is derived from the Sanskrit word ” seva+angee ” which means “body of work” or a regime. In this case a regimen of practice and training for the development of the self. Sevangee also corroborates with the concept of Yin & Yang, where “Seva” is yang and “angee” is yin.
Sevangee draws its ideology from a bamboo plant, though hollow in nature, but having tremendous potential – from being a weapon to a musical instrument, to being the basic foundation for shelter, and so on..!

Christopher started his journey in the year 1975 in the field of internal body training as well as in the field of Chinese martial arts (Wushu, Hua Chuan-Kung Fu) and physical training. He trained under the late Lama Sevang Migyuar Nobu in both hard/external martial art (Hua Chuan Kung Fu) as well as soft/internal martial arts (Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Nei Gong).
He completed his training in China where he became the first Indian to be trained in Wushu at the prestigious Beijing Institute of Physical Education. His list of achievements since then is extensive. Since then he has conducted numerous classes, seminars, and workshops across India. He is an expert in the use of a vast array of traditional weapons. He has authored and co-authored several books including ‘The Art of Kung Fu Wushu’, ‘The Art of Stick Fighting’, ‘Tai Chi Chuan: The Mantra for Health and Fitness’, and ‘The Art of Self Defense’.
From 1991 to 2004 he has researched on the ancient and fast disappearing field of traditional Indian physical training and martial arts, which has culminated in the publishing of his latest book, Vajramushti: Martial Arts of India,by Creative House International Press, Texas, USA. In addition, his study of Indian philosophy and physical training has allowed him to objectively identify the common points of origin of Indian and other traditional systems of thought and training. He is currently studying the parallels in eastern meditative experiences and high energy physics.
