Integrity Arts is a teaching school. What specifically does that mean? It means that every single person in our community of student is accountable to the knowledge, wisdom, and the value of our practice. And this accountability is demonstrated in the stewardship that we each embrace as we share this wisdom with our fellow students.

When Sensei is asked the question, ‘Sensei, when will I know that I am ready to test for my next level’? Sensei’s answer is always includes one critical criteria, ‘when you can teach your technique, at a proficiency for you level’.

We honour and respect all those who have journeyed before us and have taken the time and gifted us with knowledge, wisdom, and the learning that affords us the ability to share with others.
