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

The Karate Creed
I come to you with only KARATE,
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,
or right and wrong,
then here are my weapons,
my empty hands.
