The Three Benefits

Learn With Us

Shorinji Kempo was created as a discipline (gyo 行) to cultivate a person to "gain confidence, courage, and vigor, and to nurture a spirit of compassion and a sense of justice" through the education of its technical practice; and when grouped together, we consider these qualities true strength (WSKO 8). Through the gyo of Shorinji Kempo, a student can be educated to gain these three benefits:

Self-Defense

Protect Yourself

Improved Health

Health is Number One

Mental Cultivation

Educate Your Mind
