Student oath

Intro

In some martial art schools, an oath is recited at beginning of class. An oath is a solemn appeal, or a formally affirmed statement or promise accepted as an equivalent of an appeal, to a deity or to some revered person or thing, to show sincere support for a cause or endeavor.

Sample oath

As a martial art practitioner, I will:
  • Observe the tenets of my art.
  • Seek to fulfill the true meaning of my art.
  • Never misuse my art's techniques.
  • Be a champion of freedom and justice. Build a more peaceful world.
  • Work toward increasing the science, sport, and way of my art.
  • Increase the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of my life to develop a firm, unshakable spirit.
  • Observe the rules of courtesy, respect my instructors and superiors, and refrain from violence.
  • Follow my God, cultivate a spirit of self-denial, and never forget the true virtue of humility.
  • Help my teammates achieve each of the above.
