Student Creed

We all need a code to follow whether it is religious in nature, a set of guidelines for behavior such as the military code of conduct or rules in school a code is the glue which binds members of society into tribes. 

I use a simple student creed to remind students of their primary objectives in class. Here it is...

Student Creed 

I will study

I will practice

I will use

I will improve  ossh!

The intent is makes oneself better. My instructors have their students recite the creed at the end of every matt chat where we explain lessons of life and how they blend our martial skill with every day behavior.
