A Karate Student Should Not...

A Karate student should not...

try harder in the dojo than he does at work or school.

show more respect to his Sensei than he does to his parents.

clean the dojo but neglect his own home.

travel the world for training but not take his wife anywhere.

forget all the people who helped him to attain skill in Karate.

forget that Karate is practiced in daily life.

forget that what he does reflects on his Sensei, his dojo, and the art.

speak unkindly of other martial arts or martial artists.

forget that there is always more to learn.
If Karate training makes a student better at self defense only, it has value, but that value is limited. If Karate training makes him better at life, it has unlimited value.

Respectfully,

Charles C. Goodin
