MISSION & HISTORY
MOTTO & CONSTITUTION
PRACTICE POLICY & RULES
Our club motto reads "Shin Gi Ittai", which translates approximately to "The Spirit and Skill are One Body" or "The Heart and Technique are Together". This motto was one of several proposed by Masaki Hori in the fall of 2004, and was chosen by our club officers and coaches to best represent the ideals we strive for in our club. The motto was brushed by Cheng Xin Liu (b. 1943) for our club and subsequently updated by Wan Li Hsu for screen print use.
This motto is on our club tenugui, which is traditionally given to club members before their first competition as a sign of mutual support and encouragement.
As required by the University of Michigan and the SOAR (Student Organization and Recognition) Initiative, a copy of our club constitution can be found here.
