I do solemnly swear, that as a White Dragons of Bushido Black
Belt, I will always strive to live a life that symbolizes the
Ethics. I will work diligently to continue to edify my life
in a manner that will sustain the irrepressible spirit of White
Dragons of Bushido. With great pride and a humble heart, I will
share my knowledge and skills with those seeking to empower
their lives through martial arts. I will gladly give back what
has been shared with me.
I will be loyal to the White Dragons of Bushido system and
to its founder, my instructor, Shihan
Ron Bennett. No matter where I go, or what I do, my heart
will be filled with a spirit of love, unity and brotherhood.
I will fill my life with courage, both morally and physically,
understanding courage is a virtue that enables me to uphold
of Ethics in times of doubt, in times of peace, in times
I will emulate the lives of the Gishi, ancestral men of great
rectitude. My encounters with others will reflect my desire
for justice in all things.
I will walk with a benevolent, noble heart. I will offer sympathy
to those in mourning, compassion to those in crisis, and love
to those that deserve it the least.
I will never deface my name, or that of White Dragons of Bushido,
by being untruthful. For I know lying is not only cowardice,
but also a sign of weakness, and is highly dishonorable.
Those I meet will describe me as a polite and gentle person.
Politeness is the tradition and symbolism of the history of
martial arts, and the future of martial arts, which I now hold
in my hands. I will live a conscious life in order to uphold
personal dignity and worth.
I reverently accept the title of White Dragons of Bushido Black
Belt. It is with great humility, remember always, loyalty, justice,
courage, benevolence, truthfulness, politeness and honor, that
I will wear this belt.
I accept this creed to be a part of my every day life and I
do this willingly.
