Moorabbin Kyokushin Karate, Dojo Oath. (Dojo Kun)
When you read and understand it you will see that it was written to show respect for kyokushin, it’s teachings as an art and importantly respect for others within and outside the dojo.
Here are the words of the Dojo Kun.
We will train our hearts and bodies for a firm unshaken 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 or 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 true meaning of the kyokushin way.
