Shorinji Kempo is a Japanese martial art practiced around the world, and designed to help practitioners realize their potential through the study of effective self-defense techniques. Regular practice involves cooperatively training with others and incorporates both hard (punches, kicks, blocks) and soft techniques(escapes, locks, throws). To complement this are seated meditation and explorations of the underpinning philosophy. Practitioners work together to become confident, well-intentioned individuals who can lead and inspire others.

The Boston Branch is affiliated with the US Shorinji Kempo Federation and the World Shorinji Kempo Organization (WSKO) in Tadotsu, Japan.
