Tolworth dojo (WSKO number 6961009-5)-Surrey- United Kingdom
Here is the official home
page of the British branch of World Shorinji Kempo
The Tolworth dojo is fortunate to have Sensei
Masaki Maehara as our chief technical instructor.
A native japanese, he trained at world Shorinji Headquarters (Hombu) for
many years and attained the elevated grade of 7th Dan (making him the second
highest graded Shorinji Kempo instructor in the UK and third in Europe).
Most sessions are now taught by Sensei Blaise Howard, 4th Dan.
Tuesdays 8.30 PM to 10.30 PM
At Tolworth Recreation Centre, Tolworth, Surrey, U.K. (off Fuller's way north, just off the A3 near Chessington)
Fees: £5 per session waged (£3 or negotiable
for students or unwaged). You will also need to join the British
Shorinji Kempo federation (£25 p.a. + £7 for first joining).
Strength and brute force are irrelevant in applying Shorinji Kempo techniques. All techniques rely on knowledge of specific pressure points of the human body. By delivering a counter attack to any of these, no matter what size or sex, an opponent can be immobilised without causing permanent damage.

week to week, but many of these faces are still training regularly.
