III. UFAF CREED
To establish a “Creed” which gives us a philosophy of life.
- Discipline – the key ingredient for success in life is the discipline of mind and body. Setting goals and making sure they are accomplished builds discipline. Whatever goal I set for myself, I will first get a mental image in my mind of exactly what it is I want to achieve, then I will be determined and persistent enough to overcome all obstacles that get in my way towards that goal. Finally, I will train or study accordingly until that goal is accomplished.
- Integrity – I will be sincere and honest in my relationships with others and maintain high moral principles in my daily living.
- Loyalty – I will be faithful, support, defend, maintain allegiance, and be true to my family, my country, my friends, the United Fighting Arts Federation, and myself.
- Respect – I will show my respect for others by following the 12 principles of the Code of Ethics, for respect must be given in order to be received.
