What are the five elements of Kyokushin?

Kyokushin is a style of martial arts that emphasizes a combination of physical fitness, mental discipline, and practical combat techniques. The Five Elements of Kyokushin, also known as the “Five Dojo Kun,” are guiding principles that practitioners are encouraged to follow in their training and daily lives. These elements are:

  1. Character: Strive to cultivate a strong and virtuous character. This involves developing qualities like integrity, humility, and respect for oneself and others.
  2. Sincerity: Be honest and genuine in your actions inside and outside the dojo. Sincerity also relates to a commitment to wholeheartedly pursue your training and personal growth.
  3. Effort: Put maximum effort and determination into your training and endeavors. This element emphasizes the importance of hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
  4. Etiquette: Show proper respect and manners to your instructors, fellow students, and all individuals. Etiquette in Kyokushin extends beyond physical techniques and includes respectful behavior and humility.
  5. Self-Control: Maintain control over your emotions and actions. This involves avoiding unnecessary aggression, anger, and ego during training and in your interactions with others.

These elements are not only relevant to martial arts practice but also to daily life, promoting a holistic approach to personal development and character building.
