Tae Kwon Do Basics

The Five Tenets

All good Martial Artists and Taekwondo practitioners live by the code of ethics and are expected at all times to maintain the five tenets of Taekwondo.

These are:
  • Etiquette – Know how to behave.
  • Modesty – Never show-off.
  • Perseverance – Keep on trying.
  • Self-control – Ability to control your behaviour and actions
  • Indomitable spirit – Never give up.
The five tenets are a guide for a student’s behaviour – inside and outside the dojang. One’s character is built on these values, so the students need to take some time thinking about applying these to their daily lives – everything they do, how they interact with other people.
Always be honest, respectful, polite, and kind to others. Think positively, motivate and respect yourself and others. Be forgiving and understanding. Stand up for what is right. Keep it going and be patient even in the face of difficulty.
