Kyokushin Dojo Oath (English and Japanese)

The Kyokushin dojo kun was written by Mas Oyama with the help of Eiji Yoshikawa, the author of Musashi, a book about the life and times of Japan's greatest warrior, Miyamoto Musashi. The book provided much of Mas Oyama's inspiration during his mountain training days.
