Grandmaster Les Kiersnowski started his martial arts adventure in Europe at age 7. He started with fencing and Kyokushin, which he continued to age 14 achieving his black belt in the Kyokushin System. At that time he moved to the United States. Once settled, he extensively trained in the Kyokushin karate system travelling between Philadelphia and New York.
Next, he began his studies in the art of Judo. While training, Grandmaster Les travelled up and down the east coast competing in any invitational open competitions he was able to attend and be a part of. Through travelling and meeting several Masters and Grandmasters he was introduced to Ed Parker’s art of Kenpo. Thus began his training and studies in that system.
While training in Kenpo he continued to travel through the United States attending all the camps and seminars on Ed Parker’s Kenpo that he could find. At this time he was introduced to Professor Remy Presas and his Modern Arnis System in which he fell in love with right away. So he began training in both systems.
During his training in Kenpo and Modern Arnis, Grandmaster Les Kiersnowski was introduced to the great bladed art of Bando. During his travels, for many years teaching and training, he continued in the three arts and began extensive research in human anatomy, physics and kinesiology and the angles of movement. So he began to develop his own system of Sandokan. After spending countless hours and many years the Sandokan System was born.
To this day, Grandmaster Les Kiersnowski travels, teaches and still learns to better himself and his system. Today Sandokan System is a sought after art by many that are training in live blade art as well as law enforcement and military personnel. Sandokan System is taught and propagated in several different countries such as Canada, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, Brazil and in various schools in the United States under SANDOKAN INTERNATIONAL.
