PHILOS-DukVirtues are the good qualities that build up our human society. We must possess virtue, cultivate virtue, and practice virtue in our daily lives. Know what it means to have grace, be charitable, be caring, and also understand moral teaching, moral character, and moral nature. Then you will have the good traits that provide the cornerstone for honor and well-being.

Martial art leaders must possess virtue, because their students will learn the virtues of their teacher. That is why it is so important that martial art instructors are properly qualified. If an instructor cannot teach virtue, they are not teaching a true martial art. Without virtue all a student will learn is how to become a troublemaker or to fight like gangsters. If a martial art wishes to maintain any kind of an honorable identity, they must make sure their instructors are virtuous people.
