The 5 Tenets of Taekwondo
People need a strong moral base to manage their minds and hearts along with their bodies. If you teach them to kick and punch with no guidelines, you’ll end up with a bunch of bullies. On the other hand, if you teach them correct principles and how to control their minds, bodies, and spirits, you will have well-rounded leaders whom others will want to emulate. Following are the traditional tenets of Taekwondo that we believe are the foundation of a well-rounded individual: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, & Indomitable Spirit. We have incorporated these into our Student Creed, which is recited at the beginning of each class. After each tenet the students state the definition and then the powerful “I” statements that show how that tenet is to be be applied in their lives.
