Shorinji Kenpo

Sh?rinji Kenp? is the Japanese martial art of self-defence, improving health, fitness, confidence and concentration. Sh?rinji Kenp? incorporates punching, kicking, blocking, grappling and throwing. It relies less on strength than it does on speed, technique and accuracy, utilising knowledge of 'nerve points', and an understanding of how the body can be manipulated to achieve maximum effect with minimal effort..
