Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our training has changed. We encourage all our students to get the vaccine, and wearing masks is mandatory during close-proximity training. FFP3 facemasks are available for sale at all sessions. Shōrinji Kenpō is a formidable Japanese martial art. It was founded in Japan in 1948 by Doshin So, and is an efficient and effective form of self-defence. This group is headed by Adrian Starr-Sensei, who has been training in this style since 1981. The organisation is designed to be open and accessible to all, regardless of age, race, gender, beliefs, sexual orientation or ability. We attend weekend martial arts seminars, organise a variety of social events and run a Summer camp at the end of August. There will even be opportunities to travel abroad and experience training with different martial arts styles! Costs: The first session is always FREE. Training costs £50 per term (terms are: September - December, January - March, April - July). A one-time payment of £30 covers insurance costs, as well as WAMA membership, which gives access to international seminars and world-class teaching.
