THE EIGHT KOANS OF ISSHINRYU
By any name, “The Code,” “The Eight Precepts,” or “The Eight
Koan,” these incredible sayings are the backbone of the martial arts. Taken from
the Eightfold Path of Zen Buddhism, they create questions that stimulate the
mind and prepares a karateka for his journey to black belt. Each koan studied
takes a karateka closer to that goal. These eight koans are part of the 4 part
silk diplomas issued by Shimabukuro Tatsuo Sensei. Upon completion of the eight
koan a student will be presented with silk replicas of his rank as given to
Harry G. Smith. The next koan will not be available until the karateka is tested
and passes the requirements.
