Rules of the Dojang

All students must observe the rules of the dojang and do their best to help other students follow the Taekwon-Do path.

To show Respect:

-When entering or leaving the dojang, bow.

-Bow to the instructor and higher belts.

-The instructor should be referred to as sir/ma’am, or by Mr./Ms./Mrs. and their surname; black belts by last name only.

-When the instructor or a senior student assisting the class gives an order, say “Yes sir” or “Yes ma’am” IF you understood them.
