We will train hearts & bodies for a firm,unshaking spirit,We will pursue the true meaning of the martial way so that in time our senses may be alert.With true vigor,We will seek to cultivate a spirit of self denial.We will observe the rules of courtesy, & Respect our superiors,& Refrain from violence.We will pay homage to our creator & never forget the true virtue of humility We will look upwards to wisdom & strength.Not seeing other desires. All our lives,Through the discilplines of karate we will seek to fulfill the true meaning of the way.
