Shorinji Kempo is a training system for creating balance between mind and body. To accomplish this Shorinji Kempo uses two training methods:
Meditation (chinkon gyō 鎮魂行, which in principle means zazen 座禅) This practice will give you a good posture, calm and relaxed breathing and also foster a balanced mind.
Martial training (ekkin gyō 易筋行). Through this training your self-confidence and determination improve and give you a firm base for efficiency in a self defence situation as well as in you daily life.
