Daimon-Ryu Budokai Martial Arts Association- Ukinjukai Dojo

Daimon-Ryu Budokai Martials Arts Association

Teaching and spirituality resource division

In the ancient past, the art of karate was often intertwined with the Chinese Classics of Confucius, Mencius and the I-Ch’ing espousing family values, social consciousness, responsibility, and the uplifting of society in general. In recent time’s luminaries such as Joseph Campbell’s writings on the Hero character actualizing himself by sharing the spoils of his trials with his society rather than hording them for him alone echoes the importance of ‘paying it forward’ and community. The exhilaration of sinew and bone on the dojo floor, forging a strong physical vehicle for the will to pilot might turn to vanity but for these important considerations. Consequently, the Daimon-Ryu Budokai Martial Arts Association will strive to suggest and supply resources to assist the seeker in his or her quest towards self-awareness and mastery. This approach of spiritual, social, moral and ethical study coupled with committed, sincere training and the tempering of one’s personal discipline will strive to produce a balanced, actualized human being of high character and values for the 21st century.
