Shorinji Kempo is a not-for-profit organization affiliated with the World Shorinji Kempo Organization (WSKO) in Japan and the United States Shorinji Kempo Federation (USSKF). Shorinji Kempo (少林寺拳法) is a distinctive technical method founded in Japan in 1947. Defense is primary and can be acquired regardless of physical stature or muscular strength. Shorinji Kempo makes use of one's strength effectively, taking advantage of or limiting the strength of one's opponent, and controlling the opponent. 

There are four training methods which foster a balanced mind as you improve upon your technical skills. The skills are based on basic principles of physics and natural body movements. Through a disciplined practice, one acquires three benefits: effective self defense, improved health, and spiritual cultivation.

Because Shorinji Kempo is a non-commercial and non-profit organization, Shorinji Kempo tends be lesser known especially in the U.S., although it is widespread in Europe and Asia. Monthly tuition goes toward the renting of space, supplies, and the running and maintenance of the class. Shorinji Kempo instructors teach strictly on a volunteer basis and do not get paid. Despite the lack of commercialism, it is very impressive to consider that there are currently over a million Shorinji Kempo students and it is practiced in 33 countries worldwide.
