View Full Version : Shorinji Kempo in K-1 Intro

29th October 2003, 06:05
Did any of you watch the K-1 'Enter the beast' on ESPN2? On the brief background of K-1, they showed Shorinji Kempo as the representative of Kempo among all the K-1 martial-arts video clips.

It's interesting...because I'm pretty sure SK has never participated in any K-1 event. Anybody has any comment on this?

Yuki Kondo trained in Shorinji Kempo when he was in high school, earning the rank of ni dan.

Now he is competing in Pancrase and UFC.


Best regards

As Johan said, there is a Shorinji kenshi who is quite well known in K1.

So you post an apology, and still neglect to sign it........

Are you just stupid, or forgetful??

If you post anymore without a signing your name then I will delete/edit the post.

Ummmm, I guess we don't really care... as he isn't doing Shorinji Kempo in the ring (and isn't studying Shorinji Kempo anymore... as I think Johan made clear).

Or I could be wrong :) , I couldn't load the profile that Johan linked to...

Secretly proud that the Art is being given credited for its effective combat cpability I suppose... sad that anyone should feel the need to prove anything.

so, has anyone watched any of the K-1 matches where he was involved?

You can read about Yuki Kondo in several places at internet.

He is very famous and have met all top names in UFC, Pride and Pancrase.
I believe he has not ben training Shorinjikempo for many years so he can not be considerad as a shorinji kenshi.
