HONESTY AND JUSTICE

"Gi"
HONESTY AND JUSTICE

 

BE HONEST THROUGHOUT YOUR DEALINGS WITH OTHER PEOPLE. BELIEVE IN YOUR JUSTICE, NOT FROM OTHER PEOPLE, BUT FROM YOURSELF. TO THE TRUE TOMOE WARRIOR, THERE ARE NO SHADES OF GRAY IN THE QUESTION OF HONESTY AND JUSTICE. THERE IS ONLY RIGHT AND WRONG.

 

HEROIC COURAGE

"Yu"
HEROIC COURAGE

 

RISE UP ABOVE THE MASSES OF PEOPLE WHO ARE AFRAID TO ACT. HIDING LIKE A TURTLE IN A SHELL IS NOT LIVING AT ALL. A TOMOE WARRIOR MUST HAVE HEROIC COURAGE. IT IS ABSOLUTELY RISKY. IT IS DANGEROUS. IT IS LIVING LIFE COMPLETELY FULLY AND FREE, WONDERFULLY. HEROIC COURAGE IS NOT BLIND. IT IS INTELLIGENT AND STRONG.

 

COMPASSION

"Jin"
COMPASSION

 

THROUGH INTENSE TRAINING THE TOMOE WARRIOR BECOMES QUICK AND STRONG. THE WARRIORS ARE NOT AS OTHER PEOPLE. THEY DEVELOP A POWER THAT MUST BE USED FOR THE GOOD OF ALL. THE WARRIOR HAS COMPASSION. THE WARRIOR HELPS THERE FELLOW PERSON AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY. IF AN OPPORTUNITY DOES NOT ARISE, THE WARRIOR GOES OUT OF THERE WAY TO FIND ONE.

 

POLITE COURTESY

"Rei"
POLITE COURTESY

 

TOMOE WARRIOR HAVE NO REASON TO BE CRUEL. THEY DO NOT NEED TO PROVE THEIR STRENGTH. A TOMOE WARRIOR  IS COURTEOUS EVEN TO HIS ENEMIES. WITHOUT THIS OUTWARD SHOW OF RESPECT, WE ARE NOTHING MORE THAN ANIMALS. A TOMOE WARRIOR IS NOT ONLY RESPECTED FOR HIS STRENGTH IN BATTLE, BUT ALSO BY THERE DEALINGS WITH OTHER PEOPLE. THE TRUE STRENGTH OF A TOMOE WARRIOR BECOMES APPARENT DURING DIFFICULT TIMES.

 

COMPLETE SINCERITY

"Makoto"
COMPLETE SINCERITY

 

WHEN A TOMOE WARRIOR HAS SAID THEY WILL PERFORM AN ACTION, IT IS GOOD AS DONE. NOTHING WILL STOP THEM FROM COMPLETING WHAT THEY  HAVE SAID HE WILL DO. THE TOMOE WARRIOR DOES NOT HAVE TO “GIVE HIS WORD”. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO “PROMISE”.   SPEAKING AND DOING ARE THE SAME ACTION.

 

HONOR

"Meiyo"
HONOR

 

A TRUE TOMOE WARRIOR HAS ONLY ONE JUDGE OF HONOR, AND THIS IS HIMSELF. DECISIONS YOU MAKE AND HOW THESE DECISIONS ARE CARRIED OUT ARE A REFLECTION OF WHOM YOU TRULY ARE. YOU CANNOT HIDE FROM YOURSELF.

 

DUTY AND LOYALTY

"Chu"
DUTY AND LOYALTY

 

FOR THE TOMOE WARRIOR, HAVING DONE SOME “THING” OR SAID SOME THING”, HE KNOWS HE OWNS THAT “THING”. HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR IT, AND ALL THE CONSEQUENCES THAT FOLLOW. A TOMOE WARRIOR  IS IMMENSELY LOYAL TO THOSE IN HIS CARE. TO THOSE HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR. HE REMAINS FIERCELY TRUE.
