Universal Kempo Karate Schools Association is planning on opening many more
martial arts training centers throughout the world. We live in a modern industrial
civilization in which scientific and technological advances have given man a
greater awareness of himself and the world.
The basic needs for food, shelter, and clothing become more difficult to fill
because of continually increasing population and scarcity of natural resources.
The gap between rich and poor nations continues to widen and this poses great
threats to world stability and harmony; a solution must be found for the alternative
is political and social unrest, human misery, and possible catastrophe.
The values that a man possesses to direct his way of life are based on the belief
that they will bring him happiness and fulfillment. But as is readily apparent
those values, which have hitherto guided men's lives, have only engendered grave
threats to humanity and even to existence itself.
Universal Kempo teaches that fulfillment and happiness lie in the realization
and expression of true nature, humanity, and the unique potentialities and capacities,
which characterize individuality.
Values must also be readapted toward the realization of this goal. Universal
Kempo teaches that moral criteria and values must be grounded in the nature
Man is endowed with life and great potential, and as a participant in reality,
he is at once the cause and effect of everything that he encounters since all
things are interrelated and interacting. Man can create a better world, a better
life for himself, and establish the middle way of heaven on earth. It is in
his power to do so, and it is his responsibility. Every individual has a responsibility
first to himself, to the society of which he is a part, and through society
of mankind. The degree of responsibility depends on the extent to which the
individual possesses special capacities, special knowledge, and special power
that is his because of membership in a special group.
Universal Kempo envisions a future in which individuals can truly be themselves

and leisure. Meaningful leisure must be creative living requiring great discipline
and initiative. Universal Kempo also envisions a future in which men bound by
good human relations and cooperative effort, work for the glory of mankind an
not its destruction, in which the basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing
are accessible to all, and in which man's natural and social environment are
conducive to the fulfillment of his nature and the expression of his potentialities.
Man's tomorrow depends on what he does today. There are shadows of impending
doom and the growing complexity of the world increases the burden of shouldering
one's individuality and responsibility to an almost impossible degree. But this
is man's challenge; accepting its call is the only way to alleviate the suffering
facing us today and of securing happiness and fulfillment. It's also the way
to contribute to the process of evolution and ultimately to give meaning to
