Lion's share of the credit for such extraordinary performance goes to Lt.Col.Raj Sangram Singh who was the one who identified the hidden potential  in Adityavikram and he in turn had shared the same with his  parents who had ensured that he gets the best possible coaching in the discipline. His pursuit for the perfect ecosystem  made him travel to far off countries including Malaysia  Iran and Germany. His parents Nilanjana and Deb had  ensured that irrespective of the financial implications and geographical distances, Aadityavikram gets the best available teaching that this world has to offer. His attempts were well rewarded when one after the other, Aadityavikram got the chance to develop under the tutelage of some of the best instructors of the world. Starting  from Mr.Nitin Gupta from Bangalore, Ms Petra Schlichte & Mr Joachim Heidenreich from Germany , Mr.Praveen Nair from Malaysia and Mr Masoud Mokarinezhaad from Iran.
