Kei 敬: Means respect
The number one principle taught is respect. Respect your parents, elders, and others around. Respect doesn't mean that you agree with them or even like them; it just means that you treat them like you want to be treated.
Ten 天: Means The Sky / Above & Beyond
This means that you should have a reason higher than yourself to study the Martial Arts. Whether it is sport fighting, self-defense, health, or any other of a million reasons. People without a specific drive to training have a tendency not to continue when it becomes challenging.
Ren 錬: Temper
Through training and discipline, we strive to forge our minds and bodies as a sword is tempered by a Master Armor. Being strong as iron and supple as a willow branch. Grandmaster Pan Qingfu's movie Iron & Silk, is a perfect example!
Bu 武: Budo, Martial Arts or Martial Way
The training you do thought the Martial Arts is a journey and a way of life for the serious practitioner.
