What is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation, and stands among the official games in the Olympics.

Respect & Courtesy
In the Dojang Respect and Courtesy can be expressed simply being polite. You can show courtesy by, bowing as you enter the Dojang, greeting your instructors and fellow students with a handshake and bow, listening quietly when your instructors talk, and thanking your instructors at the end of class.
The easiest way to describe integrity is doing the right thing, and doing what you say you are going to do. So in the taekwondo Dojang. Try not to cheat. If your instructor asks everyone to do 20 push ups, don't do 15 so you can finish first. Without pushing yourself you won't see any improvement.
Perseverance means to sticking with something, or to keeping on going even if things get tough. When training, sometimes it can be difficult to learn a new technique, you might fall down a few times or feel silly, but if you pick yourself up and keep trying you can eventually master any technique.
When you train in taekwondo, you learn many incredibly powerful techniques, some of which could potentially cause great harm. Along with these fighting skills we must also learn to develop our self-control, so that we do not put ourselves or others in danger. You must always keep calm and focused.
Indomitable Fighting Spirit
When we train in the martial arts we develope what some would call a 'fighting spirit'. It comes from persevering, from getting up and trying again when you fail, from pushing yourself through physical and mental exhaustion, and from facing your fears. This spirit is what allows us to do more than we ever imagined possible.
