i read about a school dedicated to shorinji kenpo in japan
called zenrin gakuen.
i wonder where is situated this school and what is the curiculum there
dedicated school means full time study, so i guess they must study zen
anyone have been there?

Maybe our Moderator can upload some information about Busen from e-budo threads before the crash. I believe it is saved on his hard driveÖ

Or that anyone more knowledgeable than me can explain about busen, busen becka, yoka, honka, kohtoka and kenkyuka.

There was a High School in Kyoto that specialised in Shorinji Kempo I visited it in 1989. They had a reputation for taking in kids that where not achieving at normal schools and getting good results. I have their Manji and a book they brought out on physical education somewhere but canít find them at the moment. Iíll look and post their name if I find it.

There are actually two such "Shorinji" high schools in Kyoto. One is Shoei High School in Uji Town, and the other I think is called is Minami Kyoto High School in Seika Town. In both schools all students train in Shorinji Kempo as a mandatory school subject.
