STUDENT CREED

 

To build ourselves physically and mentally.

To build friendship with one another and to be a strong group.

Never fight to achieve selfish ends, but to develop might for right.

 

TENETS OF TAEKWONDO

 

  • COURTESY-to promote the spirit of mutual concessions, to be polite to one another, to encourage the sense of justice, to distinguish Instructor from student.

  • INTEGRITY-ability to define right from wrong, and have the conscience, if wrong, to feel guilt.

  • PERSEVERANCE-a serious student must learn not to be impatient: to continue steadfastly, to persevere.

  • SELF-CONTROL-this tenet is extremely important inside and outside of the Do Jang whether conducting ones’ self in free-sparring or in ones personal affairs. A loss of ones’ self control can prove disastrous to both student and opponent.

  • INDOMITABLE SPIRIT-a serious student will at all times be modest and honest. If confronted with injustice, he will deal with the belligerence without any fear or hesitation at all, with indomitable spirit, regardless of whosoever and however many the number may be.

 

TAEKWONDO OATH

 

I shall observe the tenets of Taekwondo.

I shall respect the instructors and all seniors.

I shall never misuse Taekwondo.

I shall be a champion of freedom and justice.

I shall build a more peaceful world.
