What Is Etiquette In Taekwondo?
There are some guidelines on how a Taekwondo practitioner can act in the dojang. These laws, which include statements of politeness and humility, apply to actions in the training hall and behavior while visiting other dojangs and, more frequently than not, beyond the Dojang. When you reach the dojang, you stop, put your feet together, and incline your body forward in a bow with your arms held down beside your body. Bowing shows love for all Taekwondo practitioners present in the training hall; on the other hand, it shows that you can practice seriously and with your full attention on the other.
At the start of the training session, everyone formed a line in front of the instructor based on the color of their belt. Then, on order, “Pay attention, Greetings!” (charyot kyongne), everybody bows again, just as they did before you reached the training hall. This second bow expresses your admiration for your teacher and all the other students in the hall. When you’ve reached the training room, you can stop speaking so that you can focus without disturbing the others. When doing activities with a partner, you can do it quietly, with dignity, and always equally. You often bow to your companion before and after the exercise to reinforce this action.
Self-defense is a part of the law of nature; nor can it be denied the community, even against the king himself.
The white training dress should still be washed and appropriately adjusted when being wormed, along with an adequately tied belt. In the first case, all students are equal and are only separated by the color of their belt (- at different stages). After the training, everybody forms a new line and bows to the coach (sabum). As the last act before leaving the chamber, you bow once more. You can wear the training suit and belt (Ty) strictly for training purposes. You should only wear the belt for the training suit, and you should not eat or drink while wearing it.
You can also follow the following guidelines:
1.) Humility: Do not exaggerate your success or brag in front of your peers.
2.) Politeness: Be Always courteous and respectful to your classmates.
3.) Appreciation: Show respect to your teacher as well as all of your classmates. After all, by bowing, you’ve shown an outward desire to do so.
4.) Fairness: When doing workouts with a partner, please behave equally and without ulterior motives. Unsportsmanlike conduct is not tolerated here.
Taekwondo is not about fighting; it’s about building character.
5.) Self-control: Never lose your cool while exercising, even though you believe you have been handled unfairly. Be Often on time and maintain a disciplined demeanor in the training room.
6.) Patience: Even though specific drills are performed often, and you have to wait for a long time before the next belt-grading exam, please be patient. Your perseverance and tenacity will be rewarded in the end.
7.) Helpfulness: Be Always willing to assist other students during preparation. You may also be able to help the teacher in integrating new students into the group.
8.) Openness: Be Always open with your classmates and refrain from bragging (see Humbleness).
