What's Shorinji Kempo?
Shorinji Kempo, now more than ever, is a martial art to represent Japan.

However, among Japan's many martial arts, the history of Shorinji Kempo is very young - only 60 years have passed since its creation.

In this time, over 1,500,000 people have joined. The number of branches within Japan is about 2,950, and it has also spread to 33 countries worldwide.

On this page, we offer for a general readership a simple, clear explanation of Shorinji Kempo.
