FIVE TENETS OF TAEKWONDO
Be polite to one another. Encourage the sense of justice and humanity. Distinguish instructor from student, senior from junior and elder from younger. Behave oneself according to etiquette. Respect others possessions.
Be able to see the difference between right and wrong. Do right and stand up for what is right.
Continue the training or any struggle against all odds in order to reach the goal.
Control you mind (thoughts and emotions) and your body.
Stand up to your principles with courage and without any fear or hesitation at all, with indomitable spirit, regardless of who or what is ahead of you.
Whether you need some exercise or want to feel more confident when alone in a dark street or would like to be an Olympic champion (or anything in between) come to us. We are part of Dublin Taekwondo Academy a Kukkiwon recognised club.
