Techniques

Shorinji Kempo teaches effective self-defence utilising both hard and soft techniques – Goho 剛法 and Juho 柔法.  This creates a system of self-defence built on technique rather than physical strength, meaning a smaller and/or weaker defender can overcome a larger and/or stronger attacker.  Seiho 整法 (a therapeutic massage system to relax the muscles and relieve tension) and meditation are also taught in the class.
