Shorinjiryu Kenryukan Karate Oath
|Yakusoku suru shimasu||I pledge myself to|
Martial Arts Creed
I come to you with empty hands.
I have no weapons,
but shall I be forced to defend myself,
my honor, or my principles;
should it be a matter of life or death,
or right or wrong,
then here are my weapons,
my empty hands.
