Our School Creeds

Opening creed

I come to you with only karate, empty hands.  I have no weapons.  But should I be forced to defend myself, my principles or my honor…  Should it be a matter of life or death, right or wrong…  Then here are my weapons, karate.  Empty hands.

“Ni sante nashi”

Closing creed

I will develop myself in a positive manner.  I will avoid anything that will reduce my mental growth or physical health.  I will develop self-discipline, in order to bring out the best in myself and others.  I will use common sense before self-defense and never be abusive or offensive.

We are a black belt school!  We are dedicated!  We are motivated!  We are on a quest to be our best!

Test creed

I stand here today, ready to test my skills, my endurance, my perseverance, and my knowledge of what I, to this day, have learned.  I am here to prove to my instructors, my peers and foremost to myself, that I am indeed ready to embrace more knowledge and enhance what I so humbly have already absorbed.  I confidently accept and will overcome this challenge with determination, vigilance and an open mind.

“Tamesu kokoro karada”

Test my mind, spirit and body
