Concepts in the Martial Arts

Instructors of poor character place the emphasis of training on the technique rather than on the internal aspects of DO.

***

Budo strives to develop the whole person. It strives to train the mind to develop a clear conscience enabling a person to face the world truthfully, while developing external strength. Mind and technique are to become one in true Budo.

***

Courtesy must be practiced. The student must humble himself to receive training. The student must always be receptive to criticism from others and be introspective. He must readily admit any lack of knowledge.

***

Martial arts students must have a humble and gentle manner.
Children brag or try to act like experts.

***

The value of art depends on the one applying it. If its application is for a good purpose, then the art is of great value; but if it is misused, then there is no more evil or harmful art than the martial arts.

***

Powerful drugs are dangerous. But there is no one in our medical world today that advocates shunning drugs. Yet the misuse of drugs in today's society is a tragedy. The danger then, depends on its usage. Those who would learn the martial arts must be made to understand its nature at the outset and be instructed in its proper use.

***

As students of Budo advance, they are judged more and more on attitude and intent as well as physical ability.
