Shorinji Kempo Staff.

July 10, 2009

Aha, something that I’ve only heard about, seen some pictures in old Japanese magazine and books – Shorinji Kempo’s stick fighting.

Look at the end of the stick with the metal plate and rings; this looks more like a “FangZhan Ban” or “Abbot’s Stick” that you find the late Ven Sek posing with in some pictures in full regalia.

You know, with a name like Shorinji Kempo or Shaolin Temple Boxing Method, I would expect to see more stick works …… fashioned after the Shaolin monks of China……

Anyway, just in case you don’t see this, one of the performers is missing an arm.
