The Five Tenets
of Dojos of the Risen Son
I will treat others as I would have them treat me.
I will humble myself before others and the Lord.
I will no longer say “I can’t”, for all things are possible through Christ, our Lord.
I will discipline my body through hard work, and my mind and soul through study of the Word.
I will conduct myself with truth and integrity in all that I say and do.
Philippians 2:3 (KJV) Let nothing be done through strife of vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves.
1 Peter 3: 15-16 But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who ask you for the reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.
1 Peter 5:5 Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but give grace to the humble.”

Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

James 1:19-20 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
Eighth Commandment: thou shall not bear false witness

John 8:31-32 … So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
While not one of our tenets, it is one of the greatest by-products gained by our
students, through this program. The confidence our students gain, in themselves,
helps with all aspects of their lives. Students learn to face challenges confidently,
knowing that "through Jesus, all things are possible" because they've spent time
learning how to do things they never thought they would be able to do.
