Dojo Kun is a Japanese term, that literally translates into “Taining Hall Rules”. At Villieria Tigers Shorin-Ryu Shorinkan Karate Dojo, we follow the Dojo Kun, or principles, of Shorinkan Karate. These are:
Each person must strive for the completion and perfection of one’s character.
Each person must be faithful and protect the way of truth and sincerity.
Each person must endeavor (fostering the spirit of effort).
Each person must respect others and the rules of etiquette.
Each person must refrain from hot blooded behavior and apply self-control (guard against impetuous courage).
