Martial arts are inspired by two principles: the most efficient use of mental and physical energy (seiryoku zenyo), and harmony and cooperation for mutual benefit (jita kyoei).
Practitioners of martial arts improve their speed, agility and mental strength, and develop their decision-making ability and endurance. The moral code comprises courtesy, courage, honesty, self-control, honour, modesty, respect and friendship. Judo, karate and ju-jitsu offer opportunities for ongoing personal development among friends.
