Shorinji-Kempo – Karate – 1970 –

November 17, 2019


The art of empty hands, or Karate, was developed in the island of Okinawa. The Shorinji-Kempo school houses Buddhist monks who practise karate as a complement to meditation. Their techniques include not only fists, but jumps and projections too. The Japanese master Funakoshi Gishin who introduced karate in Japan in 1921, said that the essence of karate is to be non-violent.

  1. Nice..Keep submitting vids like these. It would be cool if you check out some of my vids and let me know what you think.

  2. It is sad that Shorinji Kempo is increasing the number of people who forget to be "Buddha rows" rather than "martial arts".
    The late Dosin Sou will also be sorrowful.
