Without philosophy, Martial Arts would be little more than street fighting. At Goshin we teach and emphasize a series of basic life skills that challenge our students throughout not only their Martial Arts training but also their everyday lives. Our Tiny Tiger (age 3-5) and Youth Class (age 6-11) students are taught to be respectful and polite towards their parents, siblings, teachers and elders. They are also taught the importance of learning and doing their best in school. Our Teenage and Adult Students are taught to set achievable goals and that hard work does have its rewards. Through the Martial Arts they become more confident and develop an attitude of self-reliance. This increase in confidence enables them to better cope with issues of peer pressure and helps them make correct choices.

Our primary philosophies are embodied in our Student Creed:

I will develop myself in a positive manner,
and avoid anything that could reduce my mental health or physical growth.

I will develop self discipline, in order to bring out the best in myself and others.

I will use common sense before self defense, and never be abusive or offensive.

This is a Black Belt school.
We are dedicated.
We are motivated.
We are on a quest to be our best!

We believe in the above creed, and it embodies the philosophy we stand for. However, this is not a boot camp, the Japanese army, a Zen Buddhist temple, or a Shinto shrine. We strive for discipline without humiliation, character development without oriental religious trappings. Personal growth is the goal to which we all aspire, and continue to pursue.
