Our Core Values
Tae Kwon do Tenets
Courtesy & Respect: 예의 (Ye Ui) Tae Kwon Do is a way of life, building on empathy, compassion, inclusion, and kindness for others inside and outside the dojang.
Integrity: 정직과 청렴 (Jung Jik, Chung Ryum) Tae Kwon Do is an art of truth and is more than doing the right thing. It is revealing your own weaknesses, mistakes, vulnerability, and being honest with yourself. It is defending truth and promoting justice--being the light in darkness.
Perseverance: 인내 (In Nae)Tae Kwon Do is an endless pursuit of continuous improvement for your life--never giving up to reach your goals.
Self-Control: 극기 (Guk Gi) Tae Kwon Do is more than a sport and much more than winning. It is choosing love over hate and humility over arrogance. It is controlling yourself in training and in life to make a more peaceful world.
Indomitable Spirit: 백절불굴 ( Baek Jul Bool Gool) Tae Kwon Do is courage in the face of insurmountable challenges and never giving up.
