"The Way of Virtue"

Respect, Loyalty, Cooperation, Discipline, and Hard Work
..
The central guiding principle of traditional Okinawan Meibukan Goju-ryu Karate-do is to
..
"Seek The Way of Virtue"
.
"Meibukan" means "pure martial association"
"Goju-ryu" means "hard and soft - style".
"Karate-do"  means "empty hand - way of life"
..
True Karate-do is not simply a physical art or sport concerned with fighting. At its highest level, the purpose of authentic, traditional Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate-do practice is the full development and unification of the body, mind, and spirit.  This is not a goal that can be lightly pursued or easily achieved.  It requires a commitment to excellence, the highest standards of ethical and moral behavior, and a lifetime of humility, self-discipline, and hard work.
..
There is an important saying in Okinawa, 
."If the heart is right, the hand will be right.".
..
The greatest form of self-defense is to avoid situations where self-defense is necessary.
Grandmaster Meitoku Yagi taught that
."one should use Karate only when one's life is in danger".
..
The supreme result and ultimate manifestation of Karate-do is to
.overcome any situation with a superior mental attitude..
This is the essence and nature of the true "Way of Virtue".
