Dojokun

Kyokushin Spirit in

Dojo Oath
Written by the founder of Kyokushin Karate
Mas Oyama (1923-1994)

  • Kyokushin Karate är en kampsportstil som kallas BUDO. Om utövaren inte förstår filosofin, kan han inte heller nå fulländning. Dojo Kun är grunden för fulländning till sann Kyokushin Spirit. Dojo Kun är skriven av Kyokushin’s grundare Sosai Mas Oyama, med assistans av Eiji Yoshikawa, författaren till ‘Musashi’, vilken handlar om livet och bedrifterna av Japan’s största krigare, Musashi Miyamoto.

Dojo Oath 1

  • Vi skall träna vår kropp och själ för en fast och orubblig vilja.
  • Our goal is to train both our physical body, as well as our spiritual being. Our primary goal is to improve our spirit with daily practice and discipline. When acquiring a new technique, it is to be done with grace and integrity.

Dojo Oath 2

  • Vi ska noga studera kampkonstens innersta väsen för att påpassligt och rådsnabbt reagera när så behövs.
  • The essence of the Martial Way lies within the Art of Combat. Through training, we learn to anticipate our opponents move-ments and control the outcome of a fight. Over time, our senses sharpen, making us aware of our surroundings.

Dojo Oath 3

  • Vi ska med en sann och okuvlig karaktär fostra självbehärskningens sinnelag.
  • We all know that we are prone to bad habits. We often give into these desires, even though we instinctively know that the long term outcome will be negative. Through training, we nurture our spirit to control our weaknesses and develop a spirit of self denial.

Dojo Oath 4

  • Vi ska vinnlägga oss om höviskhet, respektera våra seniorer och avhålla oss från ett våldsamt beteende.
  • The techniques we learn in class must be mastered with courtesy. That is we are to be courteous inside and outside the Dojo. Treat people the way you expect to be treated, respect your elders, and use violence only as a last resort.

Dojo Oath 5

  • Vi ska vörda vår personliga övertygelse och inte glömma ödmjukhetens dygd.
  • Through training, we learn to be humble and we never forget the challenges we faced as beginners. We must always remember that our dedication to training, could not have been possible without the support of our family, friends, team mates, instructors, and society.

Dojo Oath 6

  • Vi ska förhöja vår visdom och styrka för att inte fela i händelse av en konfrontation.
  • The authority granted to higher belts, does not come from their physical strength but from the wisdom that they have gained through their training. They understand their strength and do not abuse this power. Sosai’s quote: “Power without Justice is Violence. Justice without Power is Meaningless.” is one way to sum up this principle. We must acquire both wisdom and strength.

Dojo Oath 7

  • Vi ska hela vårt liv fortsätta att öva karaten’s principer och därigenom fullborda den Yttersta Sanningens väg.
  • Kyokushin Way is directly connected to “OSU”. The word consists of two Japanese characters: “O” and “SU”. The first word means “To push oneself”. The second one means “Perseverance”. OSU is the essence of Kyokushin Karate. A lifetime commitment is required to fulfill the true meaning of Kyokushin Way. Osu!
