Introducing Shoshinjyuku Wadokai Dojo Kun
Our club is delighted to share that both Sensei Honami and Sensei Jessie have collaboratively crafted a Dojo Kun. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Sensei Honami's mum for her contribution in writing the calligraphy, which is now proudly displayed on the dojo wall. The Dojo Kun serves as a guiding principle, reflecting the values and spirit of our club. We believe it will inspire and guide our members on their karate journey.
道館訓 - "Dojo Kun"
The term 'Dojo Kun' refers to a set of guiding principles for the karateka (karate practitioners) to follow, both inside and outside the dojo. The Dojo Kun serves as a code of ethics and conduct for karateka, helping instill values such as discipline, respect, and self-improvement. It is often recited at the beginning or end of training, typically before the bowing ceremony, to remind practitioners of the values they should uphold."
The word "Dojo" (道場) itself means "place of the way" or "place of enlightenment" and signifies the training environment where karateka strive to improve their physical, mental, and moral character.
