UK Shorinji Kempo Wimbledon

Wimbledon Branch of United Kingdom Shorinji Kempo Federation.  Training for mind, body and self defence.

Shorinji Kempo was founded by So Doshin in 1947 in the town of Tadotsu. There are now some 1.5 million registered members of the Shorinji Kempo Federation worldwide, and national chapters have been established in 30 countries.

The biggest difference between Shorinji Kempo and other sports - and in fact other martial arts - is that the focus is not on competing to determine who is better or stronger or who the winners and losers are. It is to be used not to attack someone but to protect yourself and your loved ones. There are no contests, therefore, in which the object is to defeat one's opponent. There are competitions, but their purpose is to demonstrate the techniques one has learned and to have such demonstrations evaluated by others.
