Never neglect courtesy and etiquette (moral virtue)
3. Doryuku oko tarunakare (Haten)

4. Joshi kakeru nakare (Joshiki)

5. Wa midasu nakare (Heiwa)

'the most important thing in any game is not to win but to take part. Similarly, the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.•
