Dojo Kun

Words to Live By

The Dojo Kun is a set of guideline statements repeated at the end of each training session. These statements are intended to guide both our training and our everyday lives. Each statement is preceded by the Japanese number one. This is to remind us that each statement is of equal importance. The Dojo Kun is always recited, with meaning, respect and thoughtful reflection.
