“Talent has no boundaries, has been very aptly proved by Abhishek Sharma, the author of “Street fighter” of Bareilly, who otherwise runs an advertising business.

Talking about the book he shares, “In this one-of-its-kind book, a martial arts and street fighting expert divulges the secrets of leading a successful life by using a fighter’s mentality to face obstacles. The best way to know about a Man’s Character is to go with him for a couple of rounds in the ring. You would know more about him than he himself does.” On the question why this sort of topic for his first Dr. Sharma reveals, “ As I started learning martial arts to get better at street fights and found myself indulging in them during my years of growing up and unknowingly became a student of the combat arts until I finally settled down and had a life.”
Speaking further he told that although considered a nuisance in itself and rightly so, the fights that he found himself in and the combat anecdotes of the greats, made contributions of the highest order in his approach and attitude towards life.
“The lessons learned on the streets and in the rings gave a definite direction to my life which otherwise was missing.” He in this book has tried to comprehend these virtues for the readers and hopes to make a small contribution in the enrichment of all those who are willing to take a hit or two with a grin on their faces. The methods have largely worked for everyone that the author has shared it with. He also says, “This does not mean physically fighting, but it means using a fighting spirit to emerge victorious from difficult situations.”
On an ending note he signs off by stating the Motto of Kyokushin Karate ” Keep your Head low, Eyes high and Mouth shut”.
