Mishima Kempo

One Root

A rounded fighter needs to be able to do everything: stand up, grappling, ground, weapons, long range, close range. Mishima Kempo is an integrated, principles-first way to do this, without having to figure out how to fit different martial arts together yourself. It’s an open framework based on eight principles that work together in pairs - an approach we call Futatsu-Hitotsu. Combining different martial arts together has always been central to the history of Kempo, and Futatsu-Hitotsu allows you to easily incorporate things from other martial arts into Mishima Kempo.
