Kyokushin Spirit

Kyokushin Spirit

"The heart of our karate is real fighting.
There can be no proof without real fighting.
Without proof there is no trust.
Without trust there is no respect.
This is a definition in the world of Martial Arts."

The Kyokushin Philosophy
Keep your head low (modesty), eyes high (ambition), mouth shut
(serenity); base yourself on filial piety and benefit others.

Dojo kun ( Dojo Oath)

We will train our hearts and bodies
for a firm unshaking spirit.

We will pursue the true meaning of the
Martial Way,

So that in time, our senses may be alert.

With true vigor,
we will seek to cultivate a spirit of self denial.

We will observe the rules of courtesy,
respect our superiors, and refrain from violence.

We will follow our god,
and never forget the true virtue of humility

We will look upwards to wisdom and strength,
not seeking other desires.

All our lives, through the discipline of karate,
we will seek to fulfill the true meaning of the Kyokushin way.

The Eleven Mottoes of Mas. Oyama

The Martial Way begins and ends with courtesy.
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.

Martial Way is centered in posture.
Strive to maintain correct posture at all times.

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.
