Hello and welcome, we are Durham University Shorinji Kempo Society (DUSKS) and we practise the Japanese martial art, Shorinji Kempo. This is a dynamic martial art that focuses on punches, kicks, throws and pins, and is all about a healthy body, a healthy mind, and self-defence.
We are open to any Durham student, so whether you’ve practised Shorinji Kempo before, have an interest in martial arts, or are just looking to try something new, our doors are always open! We train three times a week in the DSU, and if you want to get involved or have any questions, send us an email, or just come along to a session.
Feeling curious? Have a browse of the site to see what Shorinji Kempo is all about!
