Our student creed defines our role in our community and how everything is organised here at TMA. Its our ethos and what we stand for, I’d like to take a moment to explain it. 1. I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that would reduce my physical health or mental growth. I promise myself that as I get older I will try my best and do everything asked of me in a cheerful manner. I will also stay away from things that are bad for my mind and body such as drugs, smoking or avoiding anything that could seriously hurt me. 2. I intend to use what I learn in class constructively and defensively and never to be abusive or offensive. I promise myself that I will only ever use Martial Arts is someone is physically attacking me and that I will always try to use my words first. I will always be polite, respectful and strive to live my life with honour, humility and in peace. 3. I will be the best that I can be! I promise myself to stay true to myself, to work to 100% of my ability both in the dojo and outside. I will never compare myself with others and will always look for the best in what I do.
