Values taught in our school:

The “Do” (pronounced dough) refers to “the way” or the way we choose to live our lives. Martial arts training is an excellent way to instill positive, life-long values and attitudes that promote peace, understanding and respect for all people. At Yu Martial Arts, all students, young and old, learn the 5 values. We refer to them as MPPTR. This stands for:

  • Modest
  • Patient
  • Polite

This is an excellent opportunity for children to learn the fundamentals of good behavior and for adults to stay on the right course. Children are also taught the three rules of concentration: focus your eyes, focus your mind, focus your body.
