A “Tenet” is a ‘core belief’ or value.

The 5 Tenets of Taekwondo are a guide for a student’s behaviour inside the dojang but are meant to extend outside of it and into real life. It is through the repetition and memorization of these tenets that one’s character is shaped.

It is important for each student of Tae Kwon Do to take some time to think about applying the 5 Tenets to their daily lives in how they act and interact with others in all situations.

Tenets of Tae Kwon Do #1: Courtesy

Courtesy, refers to being respectful and polite to all others in the dojang (training area or school) as well as people you may meet outside of formal Tae Kwon Do training. Included in this tenet is observing correct etiquette and manners at all times. Your behaviour and attitude must be courteous at all times. 

Tenets of Tae Kwon Do #2: Integrity

Integrity, includes not only the general definition of integrity where the student is not only able to determine the difference between right and wrong but also being able to stand up for what is ethically correct. Being honest and having strong moral principles is paramount and working hard to be beyond corruption are important aspects of the Tenet of Integrity

Tenets of Tae Kwon Do #3: Perseverance

Perseverance, refers to the willingness of the Tae Kwon Do student to continue to struggle against all odds to reach their goal. This applies to their Tae Kwon Do training as well as other aspects of their lives

Tenets of Tae Kwon Do #4: Self Control

Self control, means to have control over your thoughts as well as your actions. Keeping your emotions in check, particularly in difficult or trying circumstances.

Tenets of Tae Kwon Do #5: Indomitable Spirit

Indomitable Spirit, refers to:
The part of you that keeps you going when really bad times hit and push you down.
The part of you that bounces back when setbacks occur.
The part of you that won't be crushed no matter how tough things get.
You can develop Indomitable Spirit as you train in Tae Kwon Do.
It comes from consistently persevering and overcoming obstacles.
It comes from facing your fears.
It comes from getting up when you fail and trying again.
It comes from pushing yourself through physical and mental exhaustion.
Indomitable Spirit enables you to go further than you ever thought possible



Keys to Courage

1)  Courage is largely a result of confidence.

2)  Be aggressive and bold.  You’ll never develop your courage if you let failure enter your mind.  

3)  Never look for shortcuts to success..  You won’t find them.  

4)  Accept the pain that come with competition.  It hurts to work hard and extend yourself to the fullest.

5)  Welcome the crucial. Do - or- die situations.  Only under pressure can you really demonstrate courage.  Champions deliver when the pressure is on.

  Remain calm in adverse or hostile circumstances, and your courage will grow.  Desire, encourage, and confidence will spur you to a level of achievement you didn’t think possible.  You gotta have HEART!


Did you know that “Yes Sir” and Yes Ma’am” sounds good at this school and is required.  It even sounds much better at home and at school.  Try it.  That’s respect.

Roots:  A Strong Foundation

A tree is only as strong as its roots.  If the roots are weak, a force of nature will be able to break the tree and the tree will die.” - Korean Proverb

Sparring Gear

Sparring Gear will help you fight up close without fear of being hit.  Two hand pads limits your ability to fight and you end up defending only, not much practice.  Always look into the eyes of another person.  This suggests that you are confident of yourself and your abilities.  It also shows lack of fear

Martial Thoughts

“A person of a right spirit is not a person of narrow and private views, but is greatly interested and concerned for the good of the community to which one belongs, and particularly of the city or village in which one resides, and for the true welfare of the society of which one is a member.”
