Before every class at SKS, we say the student oath.
In order to earn your American Flag Patch, you must recite the oath during class by memory and in a loud, clear, confident voice.
SKS Student Oath
I will develop focus, intensity and discipline through my study Samurai Karate Studio.
I will be an example of leadership, courtesy and respect for everyone I meet, and invite them to join me in my quest for black belt excellence.
I will be honorable and loyal to my God, my family, my country and my instructors.
I will remain goal oriented, motivated and dedicated; and always choose to do my best in all that I strive to achieve.
This is just one of our curriculum requirements, but it is a very powerful one.
The translation is fundamental to being a martial artist.
You will behave like a Black belt where ever you go, whom ever you meet.
That is Black belt excellence!
Over the years, I have had students, both children and adults, struggle with their confidence and reciting the oath from memory was a major stepping stone in their way to Black belt!
Building character & creating leaders the Samurai Karate Studio way!
SKS students, please note you may find a copy of the SKS student oath in document form under the files section of our SKS Family Group on Facebook.
