He came to Finland to study economics at the Jyväskylä University in He started teaching Shorinji Kempo at the Jyväskylä University in year He was nidan at the time (later godan) from Rakuto-doin in Kyoto. Sakata Sensei stayed in Finland about four years and moved then to Sweden and later he founded a Finnish restaurant called Finlandia in Kyoto. Fumiyasu Sakata and Vesa Mäki-Kuutti in Finlandia restaurant, Kyoto 1989 Mr. Bernard Lancin from France started Shorinji Kempo with Mr Sakata in Jyväskylä, he later returned to his home country but was later again back in Finland as nidan, assisting our branch in the late 70 s. One of the first students was Mr Jaakko Katajamäki, later sandan, who founded the second club in Seinäjoki after one year visit to Japan to study Shorinji Kempo. Mr. Katajamäki was also later the Instructor of Jyväskylä Branch at a time when we had no qualified Branch Master. Mr Tarmo Marjanen started 1973 and was the second Branch Master of Jyväskylä Branch. None of the above people practice Shorinji Kempo today.

Second training place was Seinäjoki 1977 founded by Mr Jaakko Katajamäki, it was never registered as an official branch. The activity in Seinäjoki died off after several years when Mr. Katajamäki moved to Tampere because of his work. Some Early Years Activities of Shorinji Kempo in Finland There was a short lived friendship club in Saarijärvi Morikawa Zeoh Sensei from Rakuto Doin visited Jyväskylä in April and a training session was held Mr Sakata Fumyasu (5.dan) gave a training session in Jyväskylä which had over 130 kenshi from Finland.

Teachers were Tarmo Marjanen (3.dan) and Kauko Uusoksa (2.dan) Finland the Second national summer camp was in Saarijärvi. Teachers were Mr Jaakko Katajamäki (3.dan) and Mr Tarmo Marjanen (3.dan).

The Dojo floor was also rough tree and very sticky. Second Shorinji Kempo Branch in Finland was Helsinki In 1982 the Helsinki Branch was founded by Mr Tarmo Marjanen (4.dan). Branch Masters of Helsinki have been: - Tarmo Marjanen (4.dan) , - Tiina Saukkonen (3.dan) , - Ilkka Virtanen (5.dan) , Tiina Saukkonen, second Branch Master of Helsinki

Comment from the watchers: "We thought you are going to kill each other" Nordic Embu Taikai Visby 1984 Change of leaders In October 1984 Mr. Tarmo Marjanen did not follow the Hombu practicing program in Tadotsu and had a lot of personal problems there. He was therefore released from his duties in the Shorinji Kempo Organization. The governance and running of Jyväskylä and Helsinki Shorinji Kempo Branches were reorganized, and a change of generation happened.

8 A Short History of Shorinji Kempo In Finland Page 8 of 12 Aosaka Sensei and new organization in Finland, slow growth After previous years problems we were lucky to meet Aosaka Sensei for the first time at the Swedish summer camp in July There Aosaka Sensei helped us to get our organization and activities working again. To us it was a revelation to see a great Sensei and his Shorinji Kempo in person, giving us courage and inspiration to continue Shorinji Kempo in Finland. After this time Finnish kenshi have participated in European Taikais and Camps almost every time: Paris 1986, England 1986, Paris 1988, Paris 1990 and so on. WSKO International Taikais in Japan were attended regularly starting from 1989 for the first time. Aosaka Sensei (and other WSKO instructors from Europe) visited Finland regularly to teach at Finnish camps. Jyväskylä Branch has started several friendship clubs which have grown into branches: Kajaani, Säynätsalo, Vaajakoski, Laukaa Säynätsalo Branch was started from Jyväskylä in 1985 and became an official branch in Juha Utriainen, 5.dan, Säynätsalo Branch Master.

10 A Short History of Shorinji Kempo In Finland Page 10 of 12 Finnish Shorinji Kempo Federation In 2000 we had enough branches to establish a federation and started the preparations. At the World Taikai in Paris 2001 we were encouraged by Aosaka Sensei to go ahead with this. In September 2001 WSKO arranged a Regional Training Seminar in Jyväskylä, Finland. Instructors were Arai Sensei of Hombu, Aosaka Sensei of the European office and several other teachers from Hombu. At this camp the founding of the Finnish Shorinji Kempo Federation was finalized with the great help of Arai Sensei and Aosaka Sensei.
