Why train in Shorinji Kempo?

This well rounded, dynamic style is one of the best martial arts for beginners due to the careful structure of the technical syllabus and openness of it’s students (Kenshi) and instructors.

But at the UKSKF we regularly welcome seasoned martial artists to training as well due to the technical nature of the art and the philosophical teachings.

Whatever your goals from martial arts training there will be something here for you.
