Award winning Kempo Club based in the heart of London

Camden Shorinji Kempo was founded in January 2019 by Kavita Kapoor (4th Dan) and Ofelia Khan (2nd Dan).

At Camden Shorinji Kempo we used to pride ourselves on being the only completely female-founded, BAME-led, and openly LGBTQIA+ Shorinji Kempo Club. Now 5 years on we are impatient to see other clubs follow our lead.

Like all UK Shorinji Kempo clubs we are not-for-profit; all our instructors and committee members volunteer their time. Our club leads the way on professionalism in our sport as we do employ an administrator.

Camden Shorinji Kempo is part of the British Shorinji Kempo Federation (BSKF) and we ourselves are a Constituted Community Sports Club (CCSC).
