Presentation

 

Created in June 2006, the association aims at sharing the teaching of the Aosaka Sensei, who brought Shôrinji Kenpô in France and spread it all over Europe.

Like any martial art finding its essence in the Budô, the techniques of Shôrinji Kenpô aim at stopping any form of violence.

The Kenshi members of the association receive a physical and philosophical teaching following Kongo Zen.

The techniques

 

The techniques are classified in 3 categories:

  • Goho: attack and counter-attack techniques based on combinations of parrying, punching and kicking
  • Juho: soft techniques, based on clearance, staying still or projection from a seizing parts of the body or clothes
  • Seiho: massage techniques using vital points of the body to regulate the nerves and blood circulation. These techniques favor muscle relaxation.
