The Noble Discipline


Master Mabuni’s motto “Kunshi no Ken” which means to concentrate on cultivating oneself to become a well-rounded, respectful individual. The person who is able to accomplish this as well as to exercise good manners in all situations with self-discipline and respect, who is able to assume accountability for one’s actions, and to keep one’s integrity as to set an example for others, is considered a Shito-ryu practitioner. This motto can be followed by all Karate Practitioners.

    I agree that this is a great motto all martial arts students to follow. Every individual should be well rounded and respectful. Those that are a part of the martial arts world are expected to be well rounded and respectful; it is a part of the martial arts lifestyle. Great post!
