  3. Should Shorinjikempo (and Budo in general) be advertised as (women's) self-defense?

    Gassho!

    I have dealt with this question for a number of years now, and recently stumbled upon this article.
    While the author's unfortunately anonymous and the article's somewhat repetitive, it's...

    How is the term "dojo" used in Japan?

    Gassho!

    Here in the west we tend to use the Japanese term dojo very broadly for both any place where we train and the groups we train in. When in Japan, I heard that this isn't necessarily the...

    Two questions about nidan hokei that might be typos:
    - Week 19 has "gyaku tembin dori" which seems to mean okuri tembin dori (from the description and also from the overview at the back,...

    Hello Nathaniel!

    Kenshi is the official term, Shorinji-ka isn't a word (that I know of). :)

    They had the kamoku, but not the tokuhon at hand. Which makes sense, then, I suppose.

    This is certainly one of the most original ideas I've heard regarding this topic and because of that alone it's certainly worth a try.

    But that's ude ushiro neji age, so not the same thing. In that case the arm is being driven backwards and upwards, which doesn't make sense for just the wrist (i. e. you can't drive the...

    According to Kaiso, it comes from Chinese martial arts. Are there sources that prove otherwise, since this was stated as fact, rather than opinion?
