DAITO-RYU AIKIBUDO SHUGYO-KUN

The training rules at Tokimune Takeda’s Daitokan dojo:
1. The Dojo is a place of the spirit, we begin with courtesy (rei) and end with courtesy;
2. The Way becomes profound, single-mindedly condition and train yourself – never give up;
3. Pride is the beginning of inattention, and the origin of destruction;
4. Always be serious, sincerity is first;
5. The ultimate level of the Way is Harmony, that is the goal of this Ryu.
