Shorinji Kempo

Category: Martial Arts

Shorinji Kempo is a Japanese martial art that combines physical, spiritual and philosophical teachings
Shorinji Kempo is a modern Japanese martial art, where striking and throwing techniques are blended together seamlessly with meaningful and practical philosophy. Shorinji Kempo teaches self-confidence, cooperation and mutual respect. Every week you will learn hard methods (punches, strikes and kicks) and soft methods (releases and throws), eventually combining the two into a beautiful and dynamic system of martial practice. Zen philosophy underpins the training and is essential for both mental and physical growth. Shorinji Kempo is designed to effectively subdue any attacker with minimal damage by using the attacker's momentum and acupressure points on the body. As Shorinji Kempo is non-competitive and holistic, the aim of practice is for everyone to benefit, grow stronger and learn the art of self-defence.
