Tenets of Tae Kwon Do


Students should attempt to be polite to one another and to respect others. Students should address instructors as Sir and bow to the
instructors before and after classes. Turning up early or on time for classes is also an aspect of courtesy


One who has integrity is able to define what is right or wrong and have the conscience, if wrong, to feel guilt. Students should strive to be
honest and to live by moral principles.


Perserverance means having patience. One of the most important secrets of becoming a leader is to overcome every difficulty by
perserverance. Confuscious said, "One who is impatient in trivial matters can seldom achieve success in matters of great importance."

Self Control

Without self-control, a student is just like any other fighter in the street. Loss of self-control is disastrous both in sparring and personal affiars. "The
term of stronger is the person who wins over oneself rather than someone else," Lao Tzu.

Indomitable Spirit

A student will never give up, not even when faced with insurmountable odds. The most difficult goals can be achieved with indomitable spirit.
