|Zhangyu Kong - 孔張喩|
|D.O.B.||8th November 1936|
|Appears in||Shenmue II|
Zhangyu Kong (孔張喩) is the owner of Zhangyu Barber's Shop on Three Blades Street in the Lucky Charm Quarter, Wan Chai and a known Martial Arts expert in the area. He appears a serious man but is willing to help Ryo who encounters him when he is trying to find out about the Wude.
He offers to explain it whilst giving Ryo's hair a trim, explaining that Wude is necessary for martial artists and those that don't hold the principles of Wude often stray from the path. Continuing, as he sharpens his blade in a threatening manner, he says how those who stray are often hated by other martial artists, even killed. He then threatens Ryo with the blade to his throat but tells him not to move, as Ryo remains calm Zhangyu is impressed with his guts and explains his actions less ambiguously. What he had been building up to was the Wude principle "Dan", to stay calm and do the right thing.
After this their paths don't really cross again, but he will help Ryo where he can with his questions. He also seems to know Xiuying but that could possibly be just due to her role in the community as the master of Man Mo Temple.
