the concept of kendo

To mold the mind and body,
To cultivate a vigorous spirit,

And through correct and rigid training:
To strive for improvement in the art of Kendo,
To hold in esteem human courtesy and honour,
To associate with others with sincerity,
And to forever pursue the cultivation of oneself.

This will make one be able:
