There are four American Kenpo Karate creeds, as taught at PowerKenpo:
"I will develop self discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others."
"I will develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that will reduce my mental growth or my physical health."
"I will use what I learn in class constructively and defensively to help myself and my fellow man and never to be abusive or offensive!"
"I will develop Black Belt Excellence by achieving modesty, courtesy, integrity, self control, perseverence, and indominable spirit!"
