TRADITIONAL KARATE ASSOCIATION

THE PROMISE

Hanshi Adams created the promise to promote student behavior accountablility! It is the moral code we use to maintain discipline in our class, at home, and at school! When a student can recite the promise without moving,they receive their patch! As a result of this reward system, students begin to modify their behavior to achieve their patch. For the sensei, not having earned a patch shows a  new student. Those with a patch are held to a higher standard. All children recite the promise at the begining and end of every class with Sensei  or a student picked by Sensei leading.
