Todays T-Shirt choice reminded me of the Six Characteristics of Shorinji Kempo.
- Ken Zen Ichinyo – Body and the mind are one.
- Riki Ai Funi – Strength and power should never be separated from compassion.
- Shushu Koju – Defence comes before attack.
- Fusastu Katsujin – Defend and protect without killing.
- Goju Ittai – Use hard and soft techniques together, in balance.
- Kumite Shutai – Pair work is fundamental.
Live Half for yourself, Half for Others.
That is all.
