Shin Gi Tai Kempo means the combination of three elements:

  • Shin: Sky/Air or Mental.
  • Gi: Ground/Earth or Technical Knowledge.
  • Tai: Human body.

Thus, a Shin Gi Tai Kempo student must learn to combine these three elements because one doesn’t work without the others. For example, you can be mentally strong without reaching perfection because it would also require a good technique and healthy body.

Shin Gi Tai Kempo is the union of Gohon, feet and fists techniques with Judo, locks, throws, sweeps, immobilization, and pressure points.
