John Duncan 6th Dan Shihan
Shihan Tim Reilly would like to remind all students of the time and effort that John Duncan (Shukan-Shaigan-Meijin) has put into writing and compiling the Kids Way Manual for Zen Chi Ryu. It look many years of teaching, and learning the ways of children and then many long hours of writing to produce this manual.
John started back in the early eighties, placing line by line and picture by picture. Even to this day, John is still modifying the manual for the children. This manual is one of a kind in Martial Arts – there is no other. Teaching from the Zen Chi Ryu Kids Way Manual throughout the years, has seen many and varied achievements from the children – this is a credit to John.
If you are an instructor and have not read (or trained with) this manual – you are missing out on the back bone of teaching – not just with children, but with adults as well.
Over the years, John has earned World Record Fighting Titles, but of all of his achievements, nothing can be considered greater than his creation of the Zen Chi Ryu Kids Way Manual.
