Five Tenets of Taekwondo

 

Courtesy

Is giving a bow, to Black Belts and instructors who show you how, it's doing your chores before being asked and being helpful in every class.  It's a simple word like "thank-you" and "please", and never-no-never to hurt or to tease.

 

Integrity

It the simple rule of being honest at home and in school.  It's never cheating when taking a test or thinking you're better then all of the rest.  To lie or to steal just wouldn't be right, so try to be honest with all of your might.

 

Perseverance

It telling heart you're going to finish the things that you start.  It's refusing to quit when the going gets tough or starting to cry when sparring gets rough.  it's not giving up on the board you must break, no matter how many tries it may take.

 

Self-Control

State a simple fact, you should always think before you act.  It's standing in class not a muscle you twitch, even if only to scratch an itch.  It's counting to ten when things make you mad - then walking away because fighting is bad.

 

Indomitable Spirit

It not showing fear or running away when trouble is near.  It's knowing in life there's some risks you must take, an along the way some mistakes you may make.  It's standing up proudly and thinking with glee - I'm OK!  I can do it!  I believe in me!
