The Essence of SHORINJI KEMPO
The purpose of learning SHORINI KEMPO is not winning a match or beating others. It is not just a martial sport, but a training method to become self-reliant.
SHORINJI KEMPO is a martial art developed in conjunction with Zen meditation and the study of philosophy to cultivate the mind and body together.
"SHORINJI KEMPO is a way of life based on the realization of the interrelation and interaction of all things and knowledge and Man's potentialities as the only tools with which he can successfully traverse life. Its ultimate objective is to alleviate suffering and secure happiness on earth, not the cultivation of strength and power to be exhibited in competitions or to be used to initiate violence of any sort." Doshin So - Founder
SHORINJI KEMPO is a non-profit organization.
