Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, Self Defence.

Shorinji Kempo is a martial art which focuses on self-defence and spiritual development. It was founded in Japan shortly after world war two. It take inspiration from the philosophies of Japanese and Chinese martial arts as well as Zen Buddhism.

Classes typically start with a group warm-up and revision of basic techniques, followed by training in pairs.

Shorinji Kempo has three groups of technique:

- Goho (hard technique) involves a wide variety of strikes, blocks, etc.
- Juho (soft technique) involves joint reversals, releases, restraints, takedowns and throws.
- Seiho (correcting technique) uses acupressure manipulation of joints and muscles to relieve tension and reduce injury.

We also practice seated meditation and practical philosophy.

Fees:

Monthly fee is £25.00 (£20.00 for Students), payable on the 1st of each month.

Cost per individual session is £8.00 (£7.00 students), but monthly payment is preferred to encourage regular attendance.

First session is free, so please come along and give us a try!

Aside from this there is yearly BSKF membership (including peer-to-peer insurance) of £55.00.

Everyone is welcome to join us, and no martial arts experience is necessary.
