The UK Sangha practices as an Indo-Tibetan Kinetic-Tantra Martial-Yana in acknowledgement and respect to both Hindu & Buddhist traditions. It also acknowledges that the Lion's Roar! Art has always adapted and changed according to local cultural  conditions, and that these changes continue in the contemporary western world.  Accordingly, the UK Sangha continues to evolve its martial practices through the pressure testing paradigms of street-reality and sport mixed-martial-arts whilst maintaining its core Indo-Tibetan martial and cultural roots.
