About Camden Shorinji Kempo - Martial Arts

This modern Japanese martial art, will get you fit, help with mindfulness and give you a brilliant new community of incredible people across London, in the UK and the world. 

Based on weak points rather than brute strength this is an ideal form of practical self-defence, particularly against larger opponents. The system focuses on the balance between ‘hard’ strikes (kicks and punches) and ‘soft’ grappling (escapes, locks and throws). We also incorporate restorative massage (seiho) and seated meditation (zazen). We focus on respect and cooperation rather than competition.

This LGBTQ+ class in Camden is led by Kavita (3rd Dan) and Ofelia (1st Dan). They focus on practical self-defence techniques to keep you safe on a night out. As well as looking awesome in any situation with Buffy-esq tv inspired moves.  

Beginners are always welcome. You just need a bottle of water, some comfortable gym clothes, and an open mind. We also head to the pub afterwards for refreshment.

We train Thursday evenings 7pm-8:30pm upstairs in the Oxford Tavern Pub a short walk from Kentish Town Tube Station.
