Shorinji Kempo. Healthy Mind. Healthy Body. Self Defence.

Kempo is a martial art combining effective self defence techniques with practical Kongo Zen philosophy, which aims to develop the individual both physically and mentally.

The self defence techniques fall into 2 categories, called ‘goho' and ‘juho'. Goho is the hard or active system comprising punches, kicks, dodges and blocks. Juho is the soft or passive system comprising releases, throws and locks. Together they form a unique all round system of self defence based on technique rather than stength, capable of repelling any form of attack.

The teachings also include ‘Seiho' and Zazen meditation. Seiho is a therapeutic accupressure massage system used to relax muscles, relieve tension and regulate circulation. Zazen meditation is practiced during every class to calm the mind and encouraging breathing control.
