    I have seen shorinji kempo training and have talked to a guy who did it in Japan for a short while. So far, what I have gathered is that their techniques are generic in approach and not flowery with wide circle actions, in fact it look rather bland from an observer's point. However, we all know that is a big plus to realistic fighting. The only thing is that I didn't get to see enough of it to say if it is comprehensive as MMA, but then again which TMA is.

    Uh, wrong i think for the shorinji kempo part~~~ :read2:
    Shorinji kempo is said to be derived from Shaolin boxing,then added elements of karate and judo.Shaolin temple recognizes it as the Japanese version of its boxing.

    Hence "Shorin" aka Shaolin or Pine forest. I studied with a friend for a bit in it, but in the actual original techniques that resemble the shaolin ones, its kind of missing alot, but in the throws and karate elements, its definitely superior (because it takes Shaolin techniques, of which there are too many) and condences it into one particularly effective "style"

    But on second note, FORGET about kempo. Its all about the almighty supreme BBJ, NOTHING will EVER beat it. EVER.

    I believe that is its translation, Shaolin is actually a description of the area in which the kung fu was founded. Almost every name In Chinese means something, so when you translate, NOT romanize alot of the names it sometimes comes out sounding like "Little bear." Or Da Louhuan Chuan meaning Greater/big Monk/arhat Fist/Fist method.

    But some do. I could be wrong. It could be what it translates into in japanese..the characters can have alot of similarities. But I believe that the characters, when written, are very similar if not the same (for shaolin and Shorin, if you think about it, the sound is almost the same with a different accent).

    Yes,according to Chinese belief Japanese pronounciation is derived from Fujian dialect~~~
    The kanji is the same for Shaolin and shorin,but "shao" as in "youth"/"little"~~~

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it means something beyond the Henan province. I believe in cantonese it was Siu Lum.

    Shaolin gets its name in two parts. 'Shao' comes from Shaoshan, one of the several mountain peaks of the Songshan mountains. On a clear day you can see the western parts of Songshan from Dengfeng. 'Lin' comes from the fact that there is a forest near the temple.

    My opinion of Shorinjikenpo: Great if you want to study a TMA. Most of the practitioners that I've seen or met are in incredible shape. As to the origins, supposedly the founder studied various styles of CMA when he lived in China. As to how much ended up in the style nowadays I'd have new clue...stick a kung fu man in a karate dogi and it's gonna look a lot like karate.
