Our Christmas social event was a trip to the bowling alley after training, and it was excellent fun. However, there was a down side. It turns out that none of us are particularly good at bowling!


We were all quite soundly beaten by Sensei’s three-year-old son. We’re all claiming it was because he had the barriers up on the gutters and we didn’t…

Cardiff Dojo invited us to join them on a social event recently. We went to Go Ape and swung around in the trees. It was all very safe, with all the harnesses and safety instructions. But still… you’re quite high up. Not one for people who have a fear of heights. For those of us not cursed with that affliction, though, it was fun.


Afterwards we went for a meal at a local pub, and caught up on all the gossip.

The British Shorinji Kempo Federation Summer Camp this year took place in Staffordshire.


The benefits of staying in the middle of nowhere included more time to be sociable in the evenings (and mornings, and lunchtimes), beautiful countryside surroundings, and the ability to go for a run first thing in the morning.


Some people did not consider that last one to be a benefit!


Some excellent training was had by all, including shakujo (staff weapon) training outdoors, open handed technical training with Sensei Mizuno (8th Dan) and the other senior instructors, meditation, and philosophy.

After the success of the 2014 Welsh Experiment, Cardiff dojo repeated the experience this year. In 2014 we took our shakujo (6 foot staff weapons) to the Welsh mountains and used the natural dojo to practice - both shakujo and meditation - in the glorious sunshine.
