The 5 Tenets of Martial Arts Training

Respect is acting in consideration of others, exhibiting good manners, demonstrating politeness and courtesy. When the student and the instructor bow to one another, they are showing mutual respect. Other examples of respect in the Dojang include using proper titles (Mr., Miss., sir, ma’am), remaining silent and attentive while others speak, refraining from “back talking” to instructors, and showing kindness to others. As you learn your rank requirements and test for your next belts, you will be presented with a new set of skills to learn. The process continues, offering a lifetime of learning through colored belts, various degrees of Black Belts, Master Degrees and beyond.

Martial Arts students are expected to be modest about their accomplishments. Braggarts and bullies have no place in the arts. A feeling of pride in achievement is good, but should not be broadcast idly about.

Perseverance is being persistent, steadfast, enduring, to the end. Perseverance is the ability to pursue a goal until it is achieved. It is necessary that each student develop perseverance to achieve difficult, long-term goals such as the attainment of a black belt. Taekwondo students learn perseverance through their slow progress and attainment of rank. Many students falsely believe that a black belt can be easily and quickly achieved, but only dedicated and persistent people ever make it to the black belt.

Learning to manage command or govern oneself. Martial Arts teach self-control in several ways. The difficulty of many techniques requires a student to be acutely aware of himself and his actions. Control of temper and emotion is required during free sparring in order to avoid injurious results. Lastly, the student must have constant control when attempting dangerous techniques.

Indomitable Spirit
To stand up for what he believes in regardless of consequences or number of oppressors. It is to be invincible, unyielding, and unconquerable. An example of the indomitable spirit outside Taekwondo is in defending the weak in the face of superior odds, or in defense of country when severely outnumbered. Inside Taekwondo, a student can develop an indomitable spirit through board breaking as he learns to overcome his fears and continue to practice until he prevails.
