Manhattan Shorinji Kempotm


"Manhattan Shorinji Kempo" is Japanese martial arts school located in midtown Manhattan. Our training is derived from several martial arts including Karate, Kung Fu and Shorinji Kempo. Our practice emphasizes neither the "martial" nor the "art" but a balance of both. Our goal is to teach a practical defensive martial art. After just a few classes you will be able to use these techniques immediately.

No one in our dojo profits from teaching our techniqes and so our tuition is only used to pay our rent & to purchase martial arts equipment. As we are not commercially motivated, our martial art school tends to be small and emphasize individual development. We are a registered 501(c)3 not for profit corporation, so all of your tuition is fully tax deductible.

If you would like to join us please feel free to stop in at anytime and join us for a class. Just bring a bottle of water and something to work out in. Our dues are month to month and there is no contract. Our dues are $80/month . We meet twice a week.
