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!
