Shorinji Kempo: Introduction

Shorinji Kempo is “moving zen.” We seek to achieve zen (meditative awareness) in motion because awareness under stress helps make people confident in themselves and helpful to others. We use self-defense and conflict to practice how we can relax and move into cooperation when we focus on what we mean to do, rather than be swept away by situations. Thus, we train to de-stress and enjoy a discipline that mobilizes paired hard and soft techniques, choreographed confrontations, sparring, philosophical principles, basic healing techniques, pressure points, and seated meditation.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
