10 points to becoming a good Tae Kwon-Do student

  1. Never tire of learning. A good student can learn anywhere, anytime. This is the secret of knowledge.

  2. A good student must be willing to sacrifice for his art and his Instructor. Many students feel that their training is a commodity bought with monthly fees, and are unwilling to take part in any demonstrations, teaching, or work around the Dojang. An Instructor can afford to lose this type of student.

  3. Always set a good example to lower ranking students. It is only natural that they attempt to emulate their seniors.

  4. Always be loyal and never criticise the Instructor, Tae Kwon-Do, or the teaching methods.

  5. If an Instructor teaches a technique, practice it and attempt to utilize it.

  6. Remember that a student's conduct outside the Dojang reflects on the Art and the Instructor.

  7. If a student adopts a technique from another Dojang and the Instructor disapproves of it, the student must discard it immediately, or train in the Dojang where it was learnt.

  8. Never be disrespectful to the Instructor. Although a student is allowed to disagree with the Instructor, he must first follow the instruction and then discuss the matter later.

  9. Always arrive before training is due to start and ensure that you have a good attendance record.

  10. Never break a trust.
