Code of Conduct at Dujon Taekwondo
While our classes are fun, fast and exciting we do like to stick to the basic code of conduct and take pride in ourselves.
Show respect to your instructor and fellow students at all times. Always bow when entering and leaving the Dojang (training hall). It is a sign of good manners to bow and shake hands at the start and end of each class with your instructor and fellow students. Always aim to attend the class on time. Arriving late is also seen as a sign of disrespect.
Keep talking to a minimum during rest periods and do not talk at all while the class is in session. Any fooling around is regarded as bad manners and highly disrespectful to your instructor.
Dujon Taekwondo is a serious club for those with a serious attitude to martial arts. We would like you to have fun, and you will, but you need to work hard when training. We welcome anyone to our club; whether your desire is to get fit or to enter competition we will do our best to help. Nothing however will be achieved without your hard work and determination.
It is advisable to wear comfortable loose fitting clothing which will not restrict movement. Sportswear is acceptable if you do not have a TaekwonDo uniform. All uniforms must be kept clean and ironed. Jewellery must always be removed. Your appearance is a reflection of the pride you have in yourself and in your School.
Strive to improve yourself and always aim the best that you can be. Question anything you do not understand. Your instructor is there to help. TaekwonDo at the highest level is an artistic form of self-defence. This level can only be attained by sheer hard work.
Good sporting behaviour is important. Treat your training partner with courtesy. Be aware that this person is your friend. Aim to strike with control and accuracy at all times.
Never leave litter in the Dojang. For this reason we do not allow any food in. Take all empty bottles with you and do not leave anything behind at the end of the class.
Conduct outside of class
Using your skills for any purpose other than for self-defence will be deemed grounds for your dismissal.
