The Legacy of Jan de Jong

I have been informed by the editor of the national martial arts magazine, Blitz, that my article on the legacy of Shihan Jan de Jong OAM 9th Dan will be published. Can you conceive what I consider De Jong's legacy to be? It won't be what you imagine but it will be far more influential than simple martial arts. It may even challenge 'professional's' understanding of a philosophy that they hold dear to themselves.

Blitz Article on the Legacy of Jan de Jong

I have been informed by the editor of Blitz that my article on the legacy of Shihan Jan de Jong OAM 9th Dan will be published in the March (2016) edition of Blitz. The legacy is something you might not necessarily attribute to De Jong at first glance. It only comes through a deep understanding of his work and the man himself. Either buy the magazine in your local newsagent or purchase it on-line with Blitz.
