Welcome to the United Kingdom Shorinji Kempo Federation (UKSKF) website! Shorinji Kempo is a dynamic Japanese martial art founded in 1947 by Doshin So. Combining hard (go) and soft (ju) principles, Shorinji Kempo is aimed at self-defence and the cultivation of the individual. Feel free to browse our site, where you can find out about the history and characteristics of Shorinji Kempo, as well as Shorinji Kempo in the UK.
