The Student Creed

 

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.

 

We are a Black Belt School, we are dedicated, we are motivated and we are on a quest to be our best.

The Karate Creed

 

 

I come to you with only KARATE,

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,

or right and wrong,

then here are my weapons,

my empty hands.
