This simple and useful app helps you learn how to recite the Dojo Kun at your own pace, wherever you are.

The Dojo Kun is a set of 5 training hall rules, here read in Japanese, as practiced by by the Japan Karate Association (JKA) for Shotokan style karate.

A quote from the JKA web site:

"Senior instructors at the JKA developed the Five Dojo Kun, which everyone studying at the JKA commits to memory. With each practice session at the dojo, students kneel in the seiza position and repeat these five precepts out loud. This process reminds students of the right attitude, frame of mind and virtues to strive for both within the dojo, and outside."
