Pledge:

I shall never let pride rule my passions and I will defend, with all the skill I possess, the weak, the helpless, and the oppressed. I pledge an unswerving loyalty to the Association and my instructor. In addition, I pledge an unending effort to earn the self-same loyalty from those who look to me for training.
