Budo Creed


At the Southwest Academy of Kyokushinkai Karate, at the beginning of every lesson, the Sempai leads in reciting the "Budo Creed".


"We will train our hearts and 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 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 God and never forget the true virtue of humility. We will look upwards to wisdom and strength, not seeking other desires. All our lives, though the discipline of karate, we will seek to fulfill the true meaning of the way."
