An introduction to Shorinji Kempo

Join Us!

Shorinji Kempo is a very eclectic martial art.  It has many elements which work together to build a whole which is better than the sum of its parts.

The first video shows one of our senseis (teachers) describing what we do at the start of a demonstration in 2013.

It’s all very well hearing about it, but what does it look like in practice?  Check out the second video to see a compilation of the demonstrations from the same event.

Like what you see?  Check out some more BSKF videos, browse this site, or simply come along to one of our classes and try us out!

  1. Hi there,
    Is this karate class suitable for my 13-year-old son?
    He would like to try karate.



    1. Hi there Sakura,
      Shorinji Kempo, as a martial art, would be suitable for your son. Unfortunately at the moment we do not have a children’s class in Bristol. I hope you find a suitable class for him.
      Kind regards,
