The scholar leads the warrior forward into battle.
I show I come prepared and ready to fight with all that I have.
The scholar and the warrior – side by side, back to back.
I show I have no weapons.
I pull away from the fight, for it is not my purpose to fight.
I clear the air of all negative thoughts, hoping to divert the fight.
I use my universal strength: the body, mind and spirit united.
I keep my sacred Art of Kenpo to myself.
I pray I’ll never have to use it.
Embrace the world with brotherly love.
Respectful to all.
