The Dojo Kun (Ki Yo U Kunn)
The dojo kun (five principles of the dojo) is one of the most important elements of Seibukan training.  We do not believe it is sufficient only to train the body; one must also train the mind and develop character.  Seibukan's most important aspect is to add quality to life through improvement of one's health and character.  The dojo kun is the foundation for molding the Seibukan student into a valuable contributor to our society.

These are the "rules" or moral values to strive for in everyday life.  Karate has no meaning without the underlying values of these dojo precepts.  Strive everyday to incorporate the dojo kun into every aspect of your life.  Let it be your guide down the path of the martial arts.
