- I must develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that could reduce my mental growth or physical health.
- I must develop self-discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others.
- I must use what I learn in class constructively and defensively to help myself and mankind, and never be abusive or offensive.
The commitment to Black Belt is a choice to join a team. Our team is made up of our neighbors who can fit classes at our dojang into their busy schedules. We support one another as we develop our skill. We make sure each student achieves success. Fred Rogers was right about neighborhood when he said, "When we know care is there, life can seem well worth living, even with the ups and downs of our ever-changing world".
