KyuShinDo is the understanding through knowledge and experience of the principles of the Universe, and the understanding of the true way of life through Japanese Budo. All things in existence are governed by the Universe and shall be a rhythmical cycle of birth, existence and death. We can enjoy the highest form of life by mutual understanding between oneself and the Universe and by harmonising with all things in general.
The Universe revolves and therefore, always keeps perfect balance and must have a centre and radius governed by geometrical motion. We must therefore, bear in mind that every movement on the earth has been controlled by Universal evolution. Therefore, every student of Budo shall strive to perfect and harmonise with everything by opening his mind and body, by relaxing first his mind and then his body. This Idea conforms to nature.
The fundamental principle of the spiritual side of the human being is, and must be, gratitude to the principle of the Universe. This gratitude is first and foremost love and the first step, to communication with all people. This leads too, love towards parents, friends and all things in the Universe.
The first step of KyuShinDo is to have a clear understanding of each other through co-operation and affection towards one and other. In the spirit of this most needed principle, we can live in healthy and perfect harmony in this world of to-day.
The ultimate aim of KyuShinDo is the achievement of permanent peace and happiness for the human race, which is the understanding towards your neighbour, the understanding of the highest ideals and gratitude for all things. The person, who has not an understanding mind and does not make any effort to understand his neighbour, does not receive any respect or rewards.
To learn and perform good techniques is not the only aim or object of Budo, it is a way towards universal understanding and is just one of the many roads which could lead to world peace and Universal happiness. The way of Budo is not only the realisation of one's aim in life, but also gives the training and discipline necessary to strive to make an effort for life in peace and unity.
