Code of Ethics

As a martial artist, my fundamental duty is to serve GOD and MANKIND; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception; the weak against oppression or intimidation; the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional Rights of all men to liberty, equality, and justice. I promise, I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn, or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others, honest in thought and deed in my personal life. I will be exemplary in observing the laws of the land and the regulations of Tai Chuan Do Schools, respectful of the other students and instructors.

As a Tai Chuan Do student/instructor, I shall regard the discharge of my training. Recognizing my responsibilities as a trust; I shall study diligently and pay sincere attention to self improvement; shall strive to make the best possible application of science to the art of self-defense; and shall strive for effective leadership and personal happiness
in the field of human relationships. I shall appreciate the importance and responsibility of my rank and training and hold it to the most honorable high standards.
