"The heart of our karate is real fighting.
The Kyokushin Philosophy
We will train our hearts and bodies
Therefore, be properly and genuinely courteous at all times.
Following the Martial Way is like scaling a cliff - continue upwards without rest.
It demands absolute and unfaltering devotion to the task at hand.
Strive to seize the initiative in all things, all the time guarding against actions
stemming from selfish animosity or thoughtlessness.
Even for the Martial Artist, the place of money cannot be ignored.
Yet one should be careful never to become attached to it.
The Martial Way is centered in posture.
Strive to maintain correct posture at all times.
The Martial Way begins with one thousand days and is mastered after ten thousand days of training.
In the Martial Arts, introspection begets wisdom.
Always see contemplation on your action as an opportunity to improve.
The nature and purpose of the Martial Way is universal.
All selfish desires should be roasted in the tempering fires of hard training.
The Martial Arts begins with a point and end in a circle.
Straight lines stem from this principle.
The true essence of the Martial Way can only be realized through experience.
Knowing this, learn never to fear its demands.
Always remember: In the Martial Arts the rewards of a confident and
Grateful heart are truly abundant.
