The Salutation is executed three times in each class workout. The first one is for the Heaven. The second one is for the Earth. The third one is for humanity. It is the show of respect for the martial arts and for the Scholastic arts. The creed of the salutation is, I come to you with my hand open and in back of my body. I lift my arms to show that there is nothing hidden in me. But if I have to, I will move and press down any action of force coming at me. I want to pay my respects to all of the pass and present martial artists and scholastic artists of this world.
