Shorinji Kenpo

Sports Development

Shōrinji Kenpō is the Japanese martial art of self-defence, improving health, fitness, confidence and concentration.

Shōrinji Kenpō 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..

We train in the Activities Room, first floor of the SUSU building from 9am-12 noon on Sundays and go out to the Crown Inn for lunch afterwards. Come check us out! No experience necessary, All welcome. Wear comfortable clothes and bring your friends. Equally suitable for men and women of all ability standards. If you are interested, there are additional training sessions that run at venues outside the university. Please get in touch if you have any questions about the group!

Costs: FREE taster session / £3 a session, no gym membership necessary! FREE Session for every friend you bring!
