The Six Characteristics of Shorinji Kempo

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.
