KEMPO'S BASIC COURSE

Improving your mind and body is the best possible decision you can make in life.

The course aims to point out to each participant the importance of caring for their own body and mind. The course provides an excellent basis for further training of the Kempo martial arts and basic knowledge for independent training at home.

The course is the beginning of the spiritual warrior's Path of peace, harmony and wisdom.​

Each course participant will receive written materials for the course and, with the professional supervision of longtime Kempo teachers, go through all points of the course. The course is specifically designed for beginners and people who are practicing Kempo for the first time. The course is open to people of all ages and held in a small group, exclusively taught by one of the Kempo teachers.

The basic course includes a necessary introduction to Kempo's history and philosophy to various techniques of self-defense, massages and so on. 

The basic course is conducted over two months twice per week, for a total of 16 terms. Each term lasts 90 minutes. After the course and another month of regular training, the student is ready for his first belt test.

ADVANCED

Begin spiritual training

This class is for advanced Kempo practitioners - brown belts and above. The main emphasis on hard physical training is connecting the body exercise with spiritual insights. Special meditation guided by Sensei is in place to help overcome hard training and to connect body movements with inner strength, peace and calmness.
More advanced the group is, more advanced training is in place - where the ultimate goal is "sudden realization". The Kempo training begins to be an integral part of the life and lifestyle of Kempo practitioners. Applying the core principles of Kempo to everyday life is one of the goals in this class.
A big emphasis is on studying Kempo literature in depth filling any gaps in knowledge of Kempo and Kempo Path.
This group prepares to achieve the highest rank in Kempo - rank of Sensei or Kempo teacher.
