Tenets and Principles

In Taekwondo, there are several tenets that all students should follow, not only in the dojang, but also in everyday life.

  • Etiquette
  • Modesty
  • Perseverance
  • Self-Discipline
  • Indomitable Spirit

Whilst listed separately, none of them are any more or less important than another, in fact they co-exist with one another.  They help to create a framework which leads to a healthier mind, body and spirit when used in conjunction with the principles of Taekwondo;

  • Speed
  • Accuracy
  • Concentration of Power
  • Reaction Force
  • Equilibrium of Breath Control

Using these tenets and principles, students learn the Taekwondo philosophy and how to apply them all to all aspects of school, work, and home life through dedicated practice and hard work.
