Ryu Ju Jutsu places great emphasis on the development of the character of its students. A code of behaviour is used and combined with the physical training, so that technical skill, physical fitness and good behaviour become synonymous with Ryu Ju Jutsu.
The code is based on mutual respect of Teacher and Student for Ju Jutsu and acknowledges that respect must be shown for seniority.
Practitioners of Ryu Ju Jutsu are expected to show the same respect within society, not only for those who live in but also those that administer society.
It is a source of great satisfaction that English Ju Jutsu has a reputation for world-class teachers and competitors.
All Ryu Ju Jutsu students have a duty to behave in a way that will maintain and enhance this reputation on behalf of their club and their Association.
We hold, as an ideal, one of Gichin Funakoshi’s (the founder of modern-day karate) quotes:
‘The ultimate aim of the art of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the characters of its participants.’
