The Samurai Code
The seven virtues of the Bushido Code have been handed down from generation to generation since 1516. Sanki is loyal to these values.
GI : Justice and honesty
For a samurai there are no grey areas when it comes to honesty and justice, there is only right and wrong.
YU : Courage
A samurai must have heroic courage. To have courage is to live life fully. But heroic courage is intelligent and replaces fear with respect and caution.
JIN : Benevolence
A samurai develops a power so great that it must be used only for the good of all, with compassion and surrender.
REI : Respect
A samurai should never be cruel, but always courteous and show respect towards his opponent.
MEIYO : Honor
The decisions that a samurai takes are a reflection of who he really is, so he must always act on his honor.
MAKOTO : Honesty and absolute sincerity
For a samurai, “speaking” and “doing” are the same action. Without promising, the act of speaking has set in motion the act of doing.
CHUUGI : Loyalty
A samurai is always loyal to those under his care, and his word remains as a mark in the path of those who protect and guide.
