world sansei MISSION

"A tree reaches past your embrace grows from one small seed.
A structure over nine stories high begins with a handful of earth.
A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step."
TAO 64

This passage from a manuscript written centuries ago holds true today. World Sansei has grown geometrically since its inception in 1979. It has grown from a small group of students to its current existence as a world re-known organization.

The mission of the World Sansei is to promote excellence in its members. Students becoming members in the organization will grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Karate provides knowledge that will last the lifetime of the student. Discipline and preparedness learned in the Dojo will allow the students to perform at higher levels, giving them a competitive edge, both in school and in the workplace. The student that accepts the Karate way sets himself or herself forever on the path of excellence.

World Sansei, as formulated by its founder, is an organizational approach to Goju-Ryu Karate which seeks to attract people who are willing, through their training, to become role models to humanity by exemplifying loyalty, honesty, good work ethic, strong family ties, and community service.

World Sansei is about ideals, principles, and ethics; these qualities have an essential function in the life of every human being.  We are entrusted by our predecessors to maintain and propagate the art we have learned and love. We take this task very seriously and accept it with an open heart and a clear mind.
