SHIHAN DUKE SWAIN
Zenshin Goshin Jiujitsu
Hanshi Duke Swain began his training in Isshin Ryu Karate in the early 1970’s under the direction of Grandmaster Castanza. Several years later, he began the study of Goshin Jitsu & Judo also under the direction of Grandmaster Castanza and Sensei Gabriel. In 1984, Hanshi joined the United States Marines Corps where he served for many years and received an Honorable Discharge. While stationed in Japan Hanshi was introduced to Master Osoto, a great Chi Gung Healer and Martial Artist. A few years later he returned to Japan to train with and study under Master Osoto. Hanshi was quickly taken under the Master’s wing and this eventually became his home. Since then Hanshi has trained with many national and international martial artists and healers in such styles as Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Chin Na, Modern Arnis, Kung Fu, Mixed Martial Arts, Baguazhang, Aikido, Chi Gung, Tai Chi, Massage, Traditional Chinese Medicine, sports nutrition and health. He has received rank or a Black Belt in: Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Arnis, Kung Fu, Mixed Martial Arts, Chin Na, Chi Gung, Massage, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Hanshi is currently researching the restorative healing powers of (Dayan) Wild Goose Breathing Chi Gung, an internal style of Chi Gung. Wild Goose Breathing has been dated back more than a thousand years and has been known to cure such diseases as cancer, HIV and Aids, polio, arthritis, asthma and many more.
Hanshi currently teaches at Zenshin Healing and Martial Arts, where he is not only the owner but also Chief Instructor. Hanshi continues to travel throughout the United States and abroad seeking fellow martial artists and healers with which to train with and learn from.
