Camden Shorinji Kempo are a LGBTQI+ led Martial arts group focusing on practical self-defence, fitness and mindfulness. We practice a modern Japanese martial art called Shorinji Kempo. Our martial art uses both ‘hard’ strikes (punches or kicks) and ‘soft’ grappling techniques. As part of training, we also practice shouting (ki’ ai) at an attacker to teach you how to find your voice in any situation. Shorinji Kempo also incorporates restorative massage (seiho) and seated meditation (zazen), to help with mindfulness.
All Shorinji Kempo classes centre on respect and cooperation – it’s never a competition! At Camden Shorinji Kempo we always aim to create a safe and encouraging environment even as we learn how to shout, punch and kick.
