Taekwondo training in Cooper City, FL | Five Tenets.

Taekwondo training in Cooper City, FL starts with following a strict code of five tenets.

As students, our taekwondo training follows the tenets of the strict code. We say “Student Creed” before every class, but what does it actually mean? To truly understand how to follow “the strict code”, we need to understand the knowledge and wisdom behind the tenets of taekwondo. These tenets are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit, and by understanding what they mean, we can understand what “the strict code” is, and why they are important.

Tenet of taekwondo #1: Courtesy

  • Courtesy refers to showing courtesy to all others in the dojang (training area or school) as well as people you may meet outside of formal taekwondo training. Included in this tenet is observing correct etiquette and manners at all times. Your behavior and attitude must include proper courtesy at all times.

Tenet of taekwondo #2: Integrity

  • Integrity includes not only the general definition of integrity is to be able to understand the difference between right and wrong. Being honest and having strong moral principles is paramount and working hard to be beyond corruption are important aspects of the tenet of integrity.

Tenet of taekwondo #3: Perseverance

  • Perseverance simply refers to the willingness of the taekwondo student to continue to struggle against all odds to reach their goal. This applies to their taekwondo training as well as other aspects of their lives.

Tenet of taekwondo #4: Self Control

  • Self control means to have control over your thoughts, your desires and your actions. Maintaining a pure mind as well as a pure body by keeping your emotions in check, particularly in difficult or trying circumstances.

Tenet of taekwondo #5: Indomitable Spirit

  • Indomitable spirit is difficult to define but generally refers to having the courage to stand up for your beliefs and to stay strong in those beliefs and convictions no matter what the odds against you may be. It also refers to consistently exhibiting a full 100% effort in all that you do inside the dojang (training area) and in life.

The Five Tenets of Taekwondo are a guide for a student’s behavior inside the dojang but are meant to extend outside the gym and into real life. It is a through these tenets that one’s character is built up with the practice of taekwondo and the repetition and memorization is important for young students as they begin their training. It is important for each student of taekwondo to take some time to think about applying the 5 tenets to their daily lives in how they act and interact with others in all situations.
