Shorinjiryu Kenkokan Karatedo includes punching, kicking and striking techniques, as well as throwing and painful hold/lock techniques to respond to attacks by an opponent.Shorinjiryu Kenkokan Karatedo also includes the Bo (six foot staff) and Jo (four foot stick) stick-fighting martial arts, and the use of the Sai (short trident), as developed by the founder.
¡ Shorinjiryu Kenkokan Karatedo has two major methods: the Karate (empty hand) method and the Buki-ho (armed) method.The Karate method does not use any weapons, relying on the optimal utilization of mind and body, kicking, punching and striking with the Ken (fist) and Tegatana (sword hand), protecting the body with onefs bare hands and preventing the enemy from attacking. The Buki-ho method utilizes various kinds of weapons such as Bo, Jo and Sai, which adds more length to the body and requires additional consideration by the mind.Both Karate and Buki-ho methods include strikes and throws designed to train and protect the mind and body.
¡ Our training methods focus on unifying mind, technique and body through a scientific and dynamic approach to using empty hands and bare feet in combat.The goal of our training is to gain self understanding by tasting the true meaning of combat, aiming at harmony of the mind, spirit and body, working for the pursuit of truth, goodness, health and beauty.
¡ All people regardless of age and gender can practice Karate safely and experience our dynamic training without injury through the use of gSuper Safeh equipment, which is used in all Shorinjiryu Kenkokan Karatedo schools around the world.
