Everyone who trains in Shitoryu karate must know the dojo kun. At the end of each training session—whether it be at the dojo, after class, or after a technical Seminar. The dojo kun is repeated all together by the students. The dojo kun states the basic philosophy of karate, the dojo kun should not only be considered a set of rules of conduct in the dojo, but a guide to everyday life. Everything we learn in the dojo, we should apply to everyday life.
Seek Perfection of Character
Be faithful and sincere
Strive for a vigorous spirit
Live with a positive and healthy attitude
Refrain from violent behavior
