We will pursue the true meaning of the Martial way, so that in time our senses may be alert.
With true vigour, we will seek to cultivate a spirit of self denial.
We will observe the rules of courtesy, respect our superiors and refrain from violence.
We will follow our gods and Buddha and never forget the true virtue of humility.
We will look upwards to wisdom and strength, not seeking other desires.
All our lives, through the discipline of karate, we will seek to fulfil the the true meaning of the way.
