about Shorinji Kempo
to Home

I am sorry to say that there are few books about Shorinji Kempo written in English. However, recently there came several good books about Shorinji Kempo with a lot of photos on them. Although they are written in Japanese, so many photos will let you understand the contents.

Because these books are published in Japan, it is difficult to get them from outside Japan. Amazon.co.jp has some service on the internet, but again the service is given in Japanese, therefore a person who does not understand Japanese will experience a difficulty to order them.

Here is a list of books and videos, and a company which can take care of the order from overseas.
