Certified Instructors of the Chinese Kung-Fu Club of DeKalb


Sifu John Rinkenberger 2006

Black Sash, 1st Level Sifu
Certified Instructor's Rank in 2006



Since 2000 I have had the pleasure of being named Doctor John by Sifu Berry. Having grown up a seeker for knowledge, and drawn to the martial arts, I was most fortunate to meet Sifu Arthur Berry. Through his skill, compassion, and patient friendship, and that of my elder brothers and sisters in the art, and in spite of my own weakness and deficiencies, I have attained to a moderate skill level.

With humility, I hope to be able to pass on some of Sifu Berry's knowledge, and to honor his legacy and that of esteemed ancestors such as Grandmaster Yin Chian Ho, to whom my debt is great. My wish is for all students of the art to attain the wisdom and serenity which may come to those on this path, no matter their style, and may peace be upon us all.
