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.
