Could we have a discussion forum specifically for Shorinji Kempo, to go with all the other dedicated forums, please?

We will consider your request. Currently all the SRK posts are going to the Karate or Martial Arts Talk forums.

Which is about as sensible as discussing swimming, skiing, or curling there. Hence my request.
Cheers.

Shorinji Kempo is not Martial Arts?

Well then I guess you should go to a swimming forum.

So why then delineate between karate (which is a generic term anyway) and aikido for example? Or do you somehow regard these arts as more worthy of their own forum?

The normal criteria for forming a new forum for a specific art/topic is a large amount of interest and members that will use that forum. If there are enough people that want a Shorinji Kempo Forum, then I'm sure the Administrator will take that into consideration. As said before, until that happens, please use the most appropriate forum to hold your discussions (Martial Arts Talk Forum is nice and generic).

Understood, but I think you've created a Catch 22 situation; unless there is a specific Shorinji Kempo forum, Shorinji Kenshi will stay away, but unless they post in great numbers, there won't be a specific Shorinji Kempo forum...
For now, however, I'll stick to the general forum.

It is a bit of a catch 22, but if we create a new forum for every little style that wants one, There will be 100 forums with 5 posts each in them.
Just doesn't seem productive to me. Hopefully the quality of general and specific posts on here will lure people here and keep them.

I do look forward to learning about your art and your views on MA in general.

I wouldn't exactly call Shorinji Kempo little, with 1.5 million members in 34 countries (at last count).
I'd be very happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the art, although the Wikipedia entry is pretty good.

Sorry, I meant little as in a style that has little(smaller) representation of members on this site, hence a lesser need for a specific forum for said style.
