In non-pandemic times we have a range of amazing international seminars and events for everyone to attend. These include those events hosted by the International Kempo Association and the BSKF.
We are also planning to attend the Gay Games where any adult athlete is welcome – all genders, gay or straight, novice or elite. Participants range from beginners to Olympic medallists.
Tai Kai – 29th October 2022
This year Camden Kempo was the host for our National Tai Kai (tournament) that took place in Chiswick with Shorinji students from several different clubs. As hosts, we delivered on all the behind-the-scenes tasks, managed the running order of the day, and ensured a successful day was had by all. This was also carried out under the watchful eye of our head judge – Sensei Mizuno.
Berlin May 2022
A small group of our London community traveled to Berlin to teach some practical self-defense. Over 2 days we taught 4 sessions, this was an amazing experience to interact with an LGBTQIA+ and mainly female audience.
Training outdoors was a nice change of pace and huge thanks go to CODE University of Applied Sciences and all the students who took part to make this happen.
