Shinkyokushinkai Dojo Oath
We will train our hearts and bodies for a firm unshaking spirit.
To train and polish the mind and body, and to acquire a strong will and technique through the serious training of Karate.
We will pursue the true meaning of the Martial Way, so that in time our senses may be alert.
To deeply pursue the way of Karate as a Budo. To develop strength, where one would be able to respond to any situation, without wasting any opportunities. Also, to acquire a wealthy heart, where one would be able to understand and feel the generosity and pain of other people.
With true vigour, we will seek to cultivate a spirit of self denial.
To develop a strong mind, which would be able to defeat one’s inner weakness, by seriously taking part in Karate training, without overly displaying one’s own abilities.
We will observe the rules of courtesy, respect our superiors and refrain from violence.
To respect one’s superiors, to be well mannered, to refrain from acts of violence, and to refrain from showing off the power of Karate in front of others.
We will follow our religious principles, and never forget the true virtue of humility.
We need to respect the laws of nature and the universe, where humanity has no control of. At the same time, we shall always remember to respect the divine. By keeping this in mind, one would acquire a modest and humble attitude, which would never change in any situation.
We will look upwards to wisdom and strength, not seeking other desires.
To be both a good warrior and a good scholar, by acquiring knowledge, wisdom, and strength at the same time. This will enable one to make a precise judgement at an important timing.
All our lives, through the discipline of Karate, we will seek to fulfill the true meaning of the Kyokushin Way.
The way of Karate, as a Budo, is a lifetime pursuit, and the essence of Karate must be acquired through lifetime training. Do not fear experience, for the essence of Karate is in this experience.
