Our Student Creed
I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth or my 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 others, and never be abusive or offensive.
What our student creed means.
I promise myself that as I get older, I will do my best and do everything that is asked of me cheerfully.... That is developing positively. I will also stay away from things that are bad for my mind and my body... That is avoiding anything that reduces my mental growth or health.
I promise myself that everything that I have to do, I will do cheerfully, even if I do not want to do it... That is practicing self discipline. Doing things that I have to do, cheerfully, will make me a better person and will help those around me be better people too... That is bringing out the best in myself and my friends.
I promise that I will only use the martial arts that I learn from my Sensei's if someone is physically attacking me but I will first use my words and skills to avoid fighting... That is using my skills defensively. I also promise to help myself and others in any way I can... That is using my skills constructively. I will never be mean or rude to anyone or hurt anyone on purpose... That is not being abusive or offensive.
