    Default Kosho Ryu vs.Kosho Shorei Kempo

    OK, so there was a question as to the difference between Kosho Ryu and Kosho Shorei Kempo. If there is a difference could someone please explain the differences? I thought that Kosho Shorei had 8 different arts and Kosho did not have as many arts involved in the training... Any information would be appreciated.

    OK. I thought that the Shorei had to do with the religious aspect.

    The way Hanshi Juchnik explained it to me is like this.....Kosho Ryu Kempo is the war time martial art, Kosho Shorei is the entire system,energy collection, healing arts, yoga, escaping, philosophy, folding arts, meditation, war arts.

    So Kosho Ryu could be considered the 8th art.

    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    I thought this might be joint manipulations... Good question...
