Damian Kierans has been training in the martial arts for twenty years and is the founder of his own organisation called the Universal Combat Arts Academy.
He currently holds the rank of 6th Dan Master Black Belt in Ryukyu Kempo and a 5th Dan Master Black Belt in Kyusho-Jitsu (Dim Mak) from Professor George Dillman 10th Dan.
Damian also has Black Belts in four other martial arts and is a qualified instructor in a number of different combative systems. Damian first started training in Tai Chi (Yang Style) about twelve years ago and trained with that club for about two years until it closed. As there were no other Tai Chi clubs near Monaghan he continued to practice what he learned and combine it with his own training.
It was through Sifu John Collins that Damian got to first meet Master Liming Yue at a seminar in Loughrea. Damian has now completed Master Yue’s instructor training course in Manchester and is currently a level 3 Chen Style Tai Chi Instructor. He has recently being accepted as an Senior Indoor Student of Master Liming Yue
