DILI, april 25, 2023 (TATOLI)— Timor-Leste Ambassador to Japan, Ilidio Ximenes da Costa met the new Shorinji KEMPO Instructor, FURUNO Koudai who will participate in developing Kempo martial arts in Timor-Leste.

“I am very happy to receive Mr. FURUNO Koudai, New Instructor for Shorinji KEMPO Timor-Leste at the Timor-Leste embassy in Tokyo who will depart for Dili on April 25, 2023,” explained Ambassador Ilidio in a statement in his website seen by Tatoli, this Tuesday.

Shorinji Kempo is one of the martial arts originating from Japan which is often called Kempo in Timor-Leste. Shorinji Kempo was created by Doshin So in 1947 as a gym or self-discipline training and development system in Japanese.

His training method is based on the philosophy that the mind and body are an inseparable unit (shin shin ichinyo) and trains the body and spirit (kenzen ichinyo).

In this way, Shorinji Kempo has three benefits, namely, “training and self-defense (goshin is vulnerable), mental training (seishin shuyo), and improving health (kenko zoshin).
