TaeKwonDo students should attempt to practice the following elements of etiquette:
1. To promote the spirit of mutual concessions.
2. To be ashamed of one's vice, contempting that of others.
3. To be polite to one another.
4. To encourage the sense of Justice.
5. To distinguish the instructor from student and senior from junior.
This Tenet is extremely important inside and outside the Do-Jang, whether conduction one-self in free sparring or in one's personal affairs. A loss of self-control in free sparring can prove disastrous to both student and opponent. An inability to live and work within one's capability or sphere is also a lack of self-control
There is an old oriental saying, "Perseverance leads to virtue or merit, one can make a peaceful home by being patient for 100 times". Certainly, happiness and prosperity are most likely brougt to the patient person. To achieve something, whether it is a higher degree or the perfection of a technique, one must set their goals, then constantly persevere. One of the most important secrets in becoming a leader of TaeKwonDo is to overcome every difficulty by patience and perseverence.
A serious student of TaeKwonDo will at all times be modest and honest. If confronted with injustice, they will deal with the belligerent without any fear or hesitation at all, with indomitable spirit, regardless whosoever and however many the numbers may be. The spirit must be incapable of being subdued. Unconquerable!
In TaeKwonDo, the word integrity assumes a looser definition than the one usually presented in Webster's Dictionary. One must be able to define right and wrong, and have the conscience, if wrong, to feel guilt.
