Welcome to the official website for Zen Chi Ryu Martial Arts.

Zen Chi Ryu involves focusing the power and force of the mind by controlling the body for maximum skill, speed, timing, and accuracy. By developing the mind and body together Zen Chi Ryu develops the individual as a whole.

Zen Chi Ryu has three distinct branches – one for men, the second for women and the third for children. Each has been developed to suit the particular needs of men, women and children. All three have a common emphasis on developing the mind of the student through the use of Zen and modern psychology.


What a big year we have had in Zen Chi Ryu – tournaments, gradings, community fundraisers and a like. Its been an action packed year and 2016 looks like it is going to be even better, with the growth of Zen Chi Ryu getting stronger and stronger across Australia. This was seen last weekend at the Coloured Belt and the Black Belt Gradings which were held across NSW, under the guidance of Shihan John Duncan.
