Hello to everyone who is enjoying practicing Shorinji Kempo in the world.

The World Taikai we have all been waiting for is just around the corner. It will be in July, here in San Mateo, California, USA.

We, the United States Shorinji Kempo Federation, are working hard, preparing for the event to ensure that you will be satisfied with your visit, and hope that many of you will come to attend.

As we gather and practice under California’s blue sky, let’s commemorate the 70th anniversary and celebrate the success of The World Taikai.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you in July.


Katsuya Hirayama

Executive Chairman of 2017 World Taikai
