Beginning of class: I will develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that could reduce my mental growth or physical health. I will develop self-discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others. I will use common-sense before self-defense and never be abusive or offensive. This is a blackbelt school. I’m motivated, I’m dedicated, I’m on a quest to be my best. Winners never quit, quitters never win, I choose to be a winner.
End of class: I am a dedicated student of the martial arts and live by the principles of blackbelt: Modesty, Courtesy, Integrity, Self-Control, And Perseverance.
