The Dojo Rules & Ryushinkun
Karate practice always begins and ends with a bow. Traditionally Karate Dojo's and styles will have a Dojo Kun (a set of values and ethics) for its members to aspire to. Our Dojo Kun (Ryushin-kun) very much reflects the personal nature of Karate practice. Students are encouraged to develop respect and humility, and become example students.
