duncan airlie jAMES

duncan airlie jameKatana Fighting was founded in 2010, by Duncan Airlie James - Scotland's most well known and successful competitive prizefighter!


Duncan retired from competitive sport fighting at the end of 2006, as the most well known, and arguably most successful ever Scottish ring fighter ! He won SIX versions of World Thai and Kickboxing WORLD titles, and he is still the only Scotsman ever to have competed in the K-1 in Japan.


Duncan fought on many events all over the World - USA (5 times), Japan (3 times), Europe (5 times), New Zealand, Canada, and elsewhere, and he will always be fondly remembered as the tough, hardcore, honourable "Lion Rampant" in the tartan shorts, that he was.


After retiring from fighting competition, Duncan has gone on to become a professional actor, both for stage and screen, as well as strongly continuing his martial arts life. Please visit his website - www.duncanairliejames.co.uk
