13 TRAINING RULES

TRAIN WITH A JOYOUS HEART AND A QUIET MIND AS IF IT WOULD BE THE LAST LESSON YOU WILL RECEIVE

To continue the handed-down traditions of our martial art ways, developing them further and actively propagating for the next generation.

  1. Proper courtesy must be practiced at all times, as taught through the martial traditions – do not allow your foe to see you in anger or he will know the ways into your mind.
  2. You must maintain an exemplary character in accordance with the martial arts code of conduct – your legacy will long be remembered if it is the product of good deeds.
  3. You must notify your sensei in case of tardiness or absence – people make plans based on your habits; do not let your foe see your plans for him.
  4. You must train to be prepared for everything and live in peace with nothing – complete training gear including dojo t-shirt is necessary.
  5. You must exhibit proper hygene including clean and pressed gear and odorless body – the wind carries your scent; do not knock on the door of he who brings you harm.
  6. You must remove all jewelry before entering the training area – carry not your tools of destruction at your foe’s sight.
  7. You must have permission from the highest rank present before entering or exiting the training floor or office – work within the confines of authorities, your intentions must not be made apparent to the common eyes.
  8. Though we encourage other activities, you must inform the Sensei when attending other martial arts functions – give loyalty and loyalty shall be reciprocated.
  9. You must refrain from excessive speaking while in training – go before your foe with a quiet mind, a pleasant smile and a plan for his demise.
  10. Spectators are discouraged to stay in the training area; this is a source of distraction; and influences the practitioner’s concentration.
  11. Under-aged members must bring their school report card to the dojo after being signed by parents so that sensei may keep records of their academic progress.
