What is Shorinji Kempo?
Shorinji Kempo is an authentic modern Japanese martial art (gendai Budo). Renowned as a highly practical system of self defence. Shorinji Kempo was founded in 1947 by a Zen buddhist monk and introduced to the UK in 1974 by Sensei Mizuno, chief instructor and founder of the British Shorinji Kempo Federation.
Based on the use of physical principles and weak points (kyusho) rather than brute strength. Shorinji Kempo is an ideal form of practical self defence, particularly against larger or stronger opponents. Making it suitable for both men and women of all fitness levels.
Our techniques focus on the balance between 'hard' strikes (kicks, punches and blocks) and 'soft' grappling (eludes, locks, throws and pins). This combination of 'hard' and 'soft' makes Shorinji Kempo highly effective. Equating to a potent mix of boxing, Shaolin boxing and Japanese Ju-Jitsu. Teachings also include a therapeutic acupressure massage system (seiho), and seated meditation (zazen) is practiced during every class.
The teachings of Shorinji Kempo are underpinned by a practical philosophy called Kongo Zen that aims to improve individuals through developing leadership skills, mutual cooperation and confidence
