WARRIOR'S CODE

BUSHIDO - THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR
7 CODES OF CONDUCT FOR EVERY MARTIAL ARTIST

BY JEFFREY MOORE
___________________________________________________________________________

1 HONESTY AND JUSTICE
GI

Be acutely honest throughout your dealings with all people. Believe in justice, not from other people, but from yourself. To the true Martial Artist, there are no shades of gray in the question of honesty and justice. There is only right and wrong.

2 POLITE COURTESY
REI
A Martial Artist has no reason to be cruel. They do not need to prove their strength. A Martial Artist is courteous even to his enemies. Without this outward show of respect, we are nothing more than animals.

3 HEROIC COURAGE
YU

Rise up above the masses of people who are afraid to act. Hiding like a turtle in a shell is not living at all. A Martial Artist must have heroic courage. It is absolutely risky, It is dangerous. It is living life completely, fully, wonderfully. Heroic courage is not blind, it is intelligent and strong.

4 HONOR
MEIYO

A true Martial Artist has only one judge of honor, and this is himself. Decisions you make and how these decisions are carried out are a refection of whom you truly are. You cannot hide from yourself.

5 COMPASSION
JIN

Through intense training the Martial Artist becomes quick and strong. He is not as other men. He develops a power that must be used for the good of all. He has compassion. He helps his fellow man at every opportunity. If an opportunity does not arise, he goes out of his way to find one.

6 COMPLETE SINCERITY
MAKOTO

When a Martial Artist has said he will perform an action, it is as good as done. Nothing will stop him from completing what he has said he will do. He does not have to "give his word." He does not have to "promise."

7 DUTY AND LOYALTY
CHU

For the Martial Artist, having done some "thing" or said some "thing," he knows he owns that "thing." He is responsible for it, and all the consequences that follow. A Martial Artist is immensely loyal to those in his care, to those he is responsible for, he remains fiercely true.

Bushido Codes were followed by the Samurai Class for over a 1,000 years.  Regardless of  any style or art, the principles still apply today to every Martial Artist, whether you are an Instructor or a Student.

Because of  the Bushido Codes, the Samurai is often depicted on the many art's patches and logos. Below is an example  found on the Yoshin Ryu Jujitsu Patch.
