A while back I posted a question about finding a good self defense martial art in another forum. Well I recently decided to enroll in a Shorinji Kempo class and I find it very enlightening. This is my first foree into the martial arts and to be perfectly honest, Im out of shape. Well this class has taught me just how out of shape I am! The instructor is a very well educated and encouraging young man and I think I will be able to learn alot from him. My only problem lies in being 35 years old and being a white belt in a class of people half my age. Oh well there is no mercy for the old fat man in there let me tell you. I hope to be able to post in here more often to share my experiences and learn from those of you who are more expereinced in the arts. anyone in here ever studied Kempo before? Jim Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
