    The philosophical side of Shorinjikempo is somthing that I actually like, because it promotes you to take the training outside the dojo into the real life. And it is my opinion that we donītīhave a pacifist focus as you wrote. The philosophy celarly states that we are to use what we learn if needed to in self defence or defending others. What we are not supposed to do is to use fighting for personal gain. The main reason with our philosphy is that strong independent "good" people makes a good world. And it is there Shorinjikempo comes in as an MA.

    I dont feel like its anything like a cult, bacause the focus of our training is on the individual and to make improvments we train with others. So training between two kenshis is not about winning, its to help eachother to improve. And its not easy, especially to take away the "winning" part out of it.

    At last I must say that the philosophical side isnīt such a big part of our training. Most of the theory we have to learn we learn ourself by reading books.

    ps.
    Sorry if my english is bad!

    If it is being translated into Pine tree or old pine tree then it would be Kosho not Shorinji.

    I took shorinji kempo from two teachers in Idaho, one was a student club at a U in Burley from Nidan from Japan, and the other was from a sensei in Pocatello. The Pocatello school was somewhat modernized it seemed more for japanese style points tournaments. His training was awesome, stairs, jumping, medicine ball, etc. He did notteach keep"hands-up" like KK, since they did not allow head kicks, and the mawashi-geri was ball of the foot like wado-ryu. Effective, I would guess so, but somewhat stylized. A lot of the moves are similar/same as aikido, and would take more years to perfect and implement. For effectiveness, I prefer Judo and KB, but I've also used aikido in three "fights"to effectivelly avoid it going to "blood," which is the opposite of my years of KK. I'm currently working to add some aikido to my own style JuShinDo although it's hard to implement it effectively.

    well I hope that you really don't expect me to go to your website...

    I don't think there is any in Utah. Yukio Kono (4thdan s-k) started a dojo in Logan, carried on by his student Gary Conners, who trained in Japan some, then got pissed when they changed techniques as he now calls his dojo Kyrin ryu or something as he split from s-k. Yukio dropped s-k and went to Kyokushinkai after he went back to Japan. The closest is probably http://wado-institute.com/ where Gary brings his students every year for their tourney (called affectionately The Blood Bath - the end of the bb elim gets really bloody sometimes).

    But Gary does carry on with the Buddhist religious trad and meditation and some massage body work and stuff like that, that s-k does. And they and the wado train hard and fight hard - way harder than the usual karate crapola seen on the mainland.

    In 2006 that subforum did not exist. If you guys are too lazy to report a post, I am too lazy to move the thread.
