Rules of the
Self-discipline is a pearl that grows slowly. It gives us
the ability to do the correct many things in life. To develop
self-discipline, we must first learn to accept someone else’s discipline.
This is the most important reason for the “Rules of the Dojang” so
that we may get maximum benefits.
Bow politely and announce loudly the “Word of the Month” when
entering and leaving the dojang. This is to demonstrate respect.
When speaking to instructors, advanced belts or adults,
always address them as “Sir” or “Ma’am”. Always say: “Yes, Ma’am” or “No,
Sir” when answering.
Bow politely to your instructors at the first meeting of each
day and before asking a question. This is to show respect and to help
develop a very special trait “humility”.
Leadership students are expected to be considerate and well
behaved, to help newer students and to set a good example to others.
Students are not to talk during class instruction. If you
wish to ask a question, you must raise your hand and wait for the instructor
to acknowledge you.
Only school approved uniforms and
are allowed on the workout floor.
Do not chew gum, drink, eat or wear shoes in the workout
All students are expected to assist in keeping the
Sparring without school approved safety equipment or
instructor supervision is not allowed. It is disrespectful to ask a person
of higher rank to spar.
Be on time for class. If you are more than 5 minutes
late, you must wait for the next class. Upon late arrival, you are required
to perform “KYL YOOL”, a Discipline Form (Kata), three times before
If you arrive early, get your card, sit down and stretch
quietly in the back room. Remember, no loud talking, playing or rowdy
Words of consideration will be used at all times. Cursing
WILL NOT be tolerated.
