Taekwondo training generally includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches, and open-handed strikes and may also include various take-downs or sweeps, throws, and joint locks. Some taekwondo instructors will incorporate the use of pressure points, known as jiapsul, as well as grappling self-defence techniques borrowed from other martial arts, such as hapkido and judo.
The five taekwondo tenets that Pinnacle abides by are:
Courtesy (Ye Ui)
Taekwondo students should attempt to be polite to one another and to respect others.
Students should address instructors as Sir and to bow to the instructors before and after classes.
Turning up early or on time for classes is also an aspect of courtesy.
Integrity (Yom Chi)
One who has integrity is able to define what is right or wrong and have the conscience, if wrong, to feel guilt.
Taekwondo students should strive to be honest and to live by moral principles.
Perseverance (In Nae)
Perseverance means having patience.
One of the most important secrets of becoming a leader in Taekwondo is to overcome every difficulty by perseverance.
“One who is impatient in trivial matters can seldom achieve success in matters of great importance.” – Confucius
Without self-control, a Taekwondo student is just like any fighter in the street.
Loss of self-control is disastrous both in sparring and personal affairs.
“The term of stronger is the person who wins over oneself rather than someone else” – Lao Tzu.
Indomitable Spirit (BaekjulBoolgool)
A true student of taekwondo will never give up, not even when faced with insurmountable odds.
The most difficult goals can be achieved with indomitable spirit.
