  • This efficient method of self defence is not based on strength but on understanding the dynamics of balance, physiology and body movements.
  • It is a training system for creating balance between mind and body. To accomplish this Shorinji kempo uses two training methods: meditation (good posture, calm and relaxed breathing) and martial training (improving self-confidence and determination).
  • It is a versatile and good physical exercise.

Wear en gear


Sports wear meets the requirements for the first (free trail) training. After that, a Shorinji kempo dogi is preferred. These are for sale from the teacher.


Trainings are given by Instructor Jaap Stahlie (3rd Dan), Assistant Instructor Dennis Klonnek (2nd Dan) and the support of other Shorinji kempo dan kenshi.
