Complement your training to achieve more in less time

No practice on Thursday October 1st

Unfortunately, we have to cancel practice on Thursday October 1st since Anders-sensei, Perra-sensei and Richard-sensei will be on their way to Portugal then, and Christer will be in Umeå. We wish Perra-sensei and Richard-sensei good luck at the European Championship, and also Perra-sensei with his grading.

On Saturday, there will be adults’ practice as usual, and next Tuesday there will be both children’s and adults’ practice again.

“… he has become a living legend in Shorinji Kempo. Such finesse, such authority and focus. A true dignitary within his martial art.”

We were happy to see so many visitors, and among them were journalists from two local newspapers – Nya Wermlandstidningen and Värmlands Folkblad.
