Prof. Eugene de Silva M.Sc., Ph.D, C. Sci. , M.I.Phy., C.Chem. M.I.Chem.C., F.Prof. B.T.M., F.I.Manf., F.I.M.S., FSMA,  FRSA

Prof. Eugene de Silva pioneered the first ever structured educational system in martial arts in 1994. He established the Society of Martial Arts (www.societyofmartialarts.org ) which is now a registered charity and the only authoritative educational regulatory body in martial arts with branches all over the world. He established the IISER in 2000 to bring about a change in the traditional educational system. He was inducted to Hall of Fame in year 2001 in Florida. He is a biographee in Who's Who in the World since 1998. He secured an International Patent for Graphite Lead Manufacturing in 1988. He is a regular invited speaker, panellist and an examiner in martial arts, sports science, intelligence and science discussions at conferences and public discussions. He was a Professor/Affiliated Faculty Member at Montana State University, USA,  Honorary Research Fellow at Centre for Defence and International Security Studies at University of Lancaster, UK. He is the Director - International Relations at Institute for Democracy and Leadership, Director - Virginia Research Institute, and C.E.O. of National Accrediting Commission for Martial Arts, U.S.A. His current interests are race relations in education, intelligence and international security studies and plasma coatings methods. He has students all over the world conducting research in a range of fields. His former students are now acknowledged authorities in their respective fields. He is the Chairman of the Editorial Board of International Journal of Martial Arts Research, and International Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies and the Editor of the Journal of Intelligence, Security and Terrorism Studies.
