Student Creed

I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that will reduce my mental growth or physical health.  I intend to develop self-discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others.  I intend to use what I learn in class constructively and defensively to help myself and my fellow man and never to be abusive or offensive.


The Karate Creed

I come to you with only karate, my empty hands, I have no weapons.  but should I be forced to defend myself, my honor, or my principals, should it be a matter of life or death, of right or wrong, then here are my weapons, karate, my empty hands.
