The Shorinji Kempo branches of Canada have collaborated closely to advance the teachings and techniques of the art as specified by the World Shorinji Kempo Organization (WSKO) Headquarters in Japan.
Canadian Shorinji Kempo branches have held numerous official WSKO training events in Canada (see ACTIVITIES) in addition to regional events and fundraisers for charity.
In 2013, we formed the Canadian Shorinji Kempo Federation (CSKF) to serve as the official vehicle for our activities. The CSKF was incorporated as a federal non-profit organization (9066497 Canada Foundation) the following year.
