Expectations | Training and Behavior

Central Kyokushin Karate members are part of a distinct martial arts family that works to improve their mind, body, and spirit through persistent effort, self-discipline, and dedication to learning and growth


With a strong focus on character development and service to others, student behavior – both in and out of the dojo – is governed by shared values and expectations specified in the 11 Mottos of Mas Oyama and the Central Kyokushin Karate Code of Conduct and Code of Life


All students are expected to behave in ways that promote effective, safe training, build respect for self and others, and encourage a healthy mindset and lifestyle. Successful growth of martial skill and ethical character is achieved by adherence to the 11 Mottos and the Central Kyokushin Karate Codes.
