Remain disciplined – Conduct yourself ethically as a martial artist.

Practice courtesy and righteousness – Serve the society and respect your elders.

Love your fellow students – Be united and avoid conflicts.

Limit your desires and pursuit of bodily pleasures – Preserve the proper spirit.

Train diligently – Maintain your skills. 

Learn to develop spiritual tranquility – Abstain from arguments and fights.

Participate in society – Be moderate and gentle in your manners.

Help the weak and the very young – Use martial skills for the good of humanity.

Pass on the tradition – Preserve this Chinese art and rules of conduct.
