Dojo Kun

Karate is not a religion. It does not condemn nor promote any religion, however, it does have a belief system of its own. This belief system is summed up in the Dojo Kun. The Oath should always be chanted with strength, never mumbled in insincerity. Just as Karate movements should become automatic and reflex, the simple truths of the Oath should also become part of the belief system of the Karate practitioner. The word Hitotsu means “one” or “first” and is prepended to each rule to place it at the same level of importance as the others. The word Koto which ends each rule means “thing” and is used as a conjunction between rules.
