Dojo Kun

A code to live by

Dojo Kun is the Karate warrior code. It is the very ideals for which we try to live our day to day lives. This is recited in AOGKF Dojo’s all across the country as part of our end of class meditation. Before each rule we say ‘Hitotsu’ (pronouced as ‘Shi-tots’) meaning rule number one. Therefore each rule is as important as all the others… 

Created by Master Higaonna

The IOGKF Dojo Kun was created by Master Morio Higaonna (IOGKF founder) during his time living in America. Although there are both Japanese & English versions, they are the same.
