This is a group for Shorinji Kempo Leeds, a new martial arts club bringing a modern Japanese martial art to Yorkshire!
Shorinji Kempo is a diverse martial art, combining traditional and modern aspects. Our training comprises, among other things: - Goho, or hard techniques (strikes, blocks, evasion); - Juho, or soft techniques (releases, throws, joint locks); - Seiho, or therapeutic massage; - Zazen, or seated meditation; - Tetsugaku, or philosophy study.
Training is fun and cooperative, and is a great way to learn self-defence in a welcoming environment while also getting fitter!
All are welcome, regardless of prior experience or current fitness level. We will always manage the class in order to help introduce any new people!
