Kempo FreeStyle

Kempo FreeStyle is a Japanese martial art whose particularity combines strikes, locks and throws. Kempo FreeStyle’s origin is Shorinji Kempo created by Japanese master Doshin So in 1947 – the first ever mixed martial art(MMA). Focused on the most effective self-defense, this martial art compensates its violence by cooperation between members, thorough practise and genuine reflection on the use of those techniques. The principle aim of Kempo FreeStyle is to develop -through the practice of a martial art– individuals, physically and mentally, so they can contribute to the wellness of society. With a story combining World War Two, a Japanses spy in China (Doshin So) and Shaolin Temples, Shorinji Kempo developed in Europe through Master Mizuno 8th Dan teaching in England. That is where Sensei Bazz, 6th Dan, learnt and trained before moving To Neuchâtel - he has been teaching for 27 years. 


The clubs of Neuchâtel and Lausanne are affiliated to the Swiss Kempo Union and IKA (International Kempo Association), which includes several thousand members throughout 10 countries and expanding.


Kempo Freestyle is taught from age 6 without any upper limit (the elder of the club in Neuchâtel is well in his 8th decades!) or gender restriction. Students of Kempo Freestyle (called "kenshis") practice the basic techniques of self-defence regardless of their level. Then, kenshis are separated according to their rank to practice more and more advanced techniques under the supervision of the Sensei or under the tuition of a more experienced student (sempai). You won't be left on your own!
