ZEN SHO: Concentration of body and mind.
TUMAI-TI: Port of Okinawa.
|"ZEN SHO SHORINJI KENPO
This system or style dates back to the 1400s even
though it did not become known until a century later,
when its teaching became public. The Port of Tumai
was a mandatory stop point for many boats, where
contrabands and fighting abounded. From there,
Kempo was born, and so it follows that this system for
its origin, is clearly a combative martial art.
Our style of karate maintains a balance of techniques
between arms and legs; 50% of punches and 50% of
kicks. It is a very traditional style with low and
accustomed stances, as well as powerful and effective
blows with much use of the waist.
The essence of our style allows us to reach a perfect
balance between a physical, mental and spiritual
development. Discipline, Respect and Education are
the fundamental base of ZEN SHO SHORINJI KENPO
