Tenets of Tae Kwon Do

Tenets of Tae Kwon DoWhite Tiger Tae Kwon Do artists live their lives according to the following 7 tenets; 

  1. Honor is nobility of mind and maintenance of one’s personal dignity in the face of adversity.
    Honor is the gift for yourself. 

  2. Courtesy is thoughtfulness and consideration of other, humility, civility, and politeness. 
  3. Integrity is the uncompromising adherence to a code of moral values and principles. It requires soundness of ethical strength. 
  4. Perseverance is the steadfast pursuit of one’s goals. It is the quality of never giving up in the face of challenge.
  5. Self-Control is the restraint of one’s emotions and reactions. Control comes from within rather than from outside forces. 6.
  6. Courage is the spirit which enables one to face danger with self-possession, confidence, and resolution. Courage consists of a reserve of moral strength on which one may draw in time of emergency. A courageous person will not tolerate injustice. 
  7. Community is the responsibility to contribute to society regardless of one’s position in life. Civil accountability requires us to do our share and to be part of the solution of society’s problems. Remember: Every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity an obligation; every possession a duty.

White Tiger mental education

Everyone wants to have a happy and ideal life, many try to achieve their ideal life through material civilization. As a result, they destroy their helath, moral order,  and life. Moreover, they live in loneliness and agony. We can only achieve truth and happiness when we take care of ourselves and use the wisdom and power which nature gave us, instead of depending on material things.Our Tae Kwon Do is based on strict moral codes. The mind and body are considered more important than material possessions.  

  1. Be loyal to your country.
    Our country is our very soul and we must always strive to be loyal. 
  2. Be obedient to your parent.
    We must honor our parents in order for our children to honor us. 
  3. Be lovable / loving with your husband or wife.
    Husband and wife should be considered one, life without love has no dignity.  
  4. Be cooperative with your brother and / or sisters.
    A person who is considered your brother deserves to be helped, encouraged, and treated with kindness by you and others. 
  5. Be respectful of your elders.
    There is no substitute for the experience of the old. The y should be cared for and honored.

    Not every battle we face is actual physical combat. In fact, we face our own internal battles everyday. Thoughts including anxiety, uncertainty, being overloaded with work, being scared about the future and even taking exams are all battles that we face. In another words, never run away from your problems and responsibilities.
