Philosophy of the Goju-ryu Bujutsukan
The fundamental philosophy of the Goju-ryu Bujutsukan is embodied in the saying of Goju-ryu Founder Chojun Miyagi Sensei: “Do not strike others, and do not allow others to strike you. The goal is peace without incident.” The path of Goju-ryu is not just winning in conflicts but instead achieving one’s goals without conflict. Students of bujutsu must always interact with others with humility, avoid confrontation, and work toward achieving one’s goals. The aim is to develop individuals of true sincerity through bujutsu training.
