Morita sensei asked all of the participants of the seminar to repeat the motto of the school after him at the end of the seminar on Sunday June 1st in Chiny.
Takami san promised then to translate the motto (verse) into English  to write in alphabets.
The motto was created and written by Soke Nakamura in the past
It is an idea to remember the motto in Japanese and for all the students to repeat after sensei at the end of every Keiko.
The motto “Shuren no Jo” appears in every volume of SOBU in the bottom part of the reverse side of the front cover. And the 12 important words are picked up and printed in the calendar of NSR in each month.
