  • Honesty – “Being honest not only with your teacher but with others as well.”
  • Humility – Your ability to be humble not just in front of your teacher but to others as well in all aspects of your life. Being humble is not an act that you put on in front of your teacher and then turn it off later in front of others. Being humble is not an act, it is your mindset, it is how you approach life.
  • Respect – You show that you acknowledge the honor of others. Respect is not something you just think about or talk about. Respect is something you show. You not only respect your teacher but you show respect to others as well. For example: You may have problems with your family but you NEVER talk bad about them. You may think your style is the best but you NEVER talk bad about other styles.
  • Loyalty – Your unimpaired faithful devotion – unwavering over many years.
  • and Integrity – Your words are honest and reliable. When you say you are going to do something then you do it without fail. You are a reliable person 100% of the time. Your teacher can rely on you and can trust everything you say.

These are the qualities Master Sun is looking for in a student. This is your Wu De 武德 (your ethics as a martial artist).
