These times are challenging!
We still feel the impact of the pandemic and one way to overcome it is to keep in good physical shape and build mental strength .
Training Shorinji Kempo gets you there!
It combines cardio training and workout with efficient self-defense techniques and spiritual development, based on the Zen philosophy.
Shorinji Kempo aims at nurturing individuals by finding the harmony of the body and the mind within oneself, in order to build a peaceful world.
Light sport clothes are enough to start!
