Kyokushin Dojo Kun

This is a copy of the page from the Kyokushin Honbu entrance guide from 1990 which contains the Dojo Kun. My Japanese teacher penciled in furigana so I could read the kanji.

If you do not have Asian fonts installed on your computer, the Japanese below might look like gibberish on your screen!









We will train our hearts and bodies for a firm and unshaking spirit.

We will pursue the true meaning of the martial way so that in time our senses are alert.

With true vigor we will seek to cultivate a spirit of self-denial.

We will observe the rules of courtesy respect our superiors and refrain from violence.

We will follow our religious principles and never forget the true virtue of humility.

We will look up towards wisdom and strength not seeking other desires.

All our lives through the discipline of karate we will seek to fulfill the true meaning of the Kyokushin way.
