[gplayer href=”http://kenshinkan.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Spirit-of-Ken-Shin-Kan.mp3″ ] [/gplayer]

We come from all around,

All over this great land,

From North, South, East and West.

It’s clear that we have found,

The way of empty hand,

Will put your spirit to the test.

CHORUS:

So, join together and sing,

All together as one,

Strength is our key,

Our spirit strong and free,

Oh, Brothers of Ken-Shin-Kan.

You can feel the energy,

As we move in unity,

From Sensei, we learn the way as one.

It’s clear for us to see,

That in life there is a key,

The spirit of the warrior has begun.

CHORUS:

So, join together and sing,

All together as one,

Strength is our key,

Our spirit strong and free,

Oh, Brothers of Ken-Shin-Kan.

BRIDGE:

In all of us lies a warrior,

Waiting to be free,

Let the spirit of Sensei guide you,

Like an eagle rides the breeze,

Awaken the warrior,

Together as one,

With the spirit of Ken-Shin-Kan.

CHORUS:

So, join together and sing,

All together as one,

Strength is our key,

Our spirit strong and free,

Oh, Brothers of Ken-Shin-Kan.

Strength is our key,

Our spirit strong and free,

We’re the warriors of Ken-Shin-Kan.
