I shall...
  • show respect
  • reject passivity
  • accept responsibility
  • lead courageously
  • have integrity

The student's oath (recited at every class) is a reminder of an agreement:

- a personal agreement of the student within themselves: to set a constant

   personal challenge to do their best each and every time;

- between the students and the TMA Masters:  to open their hearts and minds  

  to the Masters' teachings of the art and abide by the code of behaviour;

- between the students and their fellow students:  to train in a way that helps

  each other develop together and that fosters camaraderie; and

- between the students and the community:  to live by the virtues learned and

  be a good example for others.
