You are always welcome at Camden Shorinji Kempo!

All you need to bring is a bottle for water, some comfortable gym clothes and an open mind. We always go for a drink or some food after training and would love for you to join us there too.

All our classes balance ‘hard’ strikes (kicks and punches) and ‘soft’ grappling (escapes, locks and throws). We also practice shouting (Ki ai) at an attacker to teach you how to find your voice in any situation. Most classes include some restorative massage (seiho) and seated meditation (zazen), to help with mindfulness. All our classes centre respect and cooperation and we aim to create a safe and encouraging environment even as we learn how to shout, punch, and kick.

It costs £5 (plus booking) to try a in-person class and £3 for an online class. (This covers insurance for a month across all Shorinji Kempo Clubs in the UK).
