At Guilderland Martial Arts we consider character development in Taekwondo as important, if not more important, than the physical aspects of training. No where is this illustrated better than in the Five Tenets of Taekwondo. Each of these five aspects of character can be applied to the life of any child or adult. There are many situations both in and out of our school that I. Self Control The ability to control our minds and our bodies for optimum learning and quality life. Examples: Sitting straight at school, standing straight in Taekwondo class, driving with in the speed limit, eating a healthy amount of food. II. Indomitable Spirit The ability to maintain high spirits and positive attitude despite any negativity or obstacles one may encounter. Examples: Not being affected by people who boo, keeping a positive attitude at work when coworkers speak negatively about you or a situation, being happy at school even if someone says something negative about you. III. Courtesy Being kind and respectful to everyone, even if they are not courteous to you. Examples: Smiling at people you encounter, holding doors for people, letting some one get in front of you in line or in traffic, being selfless, picking up trash you see on a walk. IV. Perseverance Never ever giving up. Examples: Continue your attempt at breaking a board no matter how many times you miss, continue to pursue a class no matter how hard it is, keep trying to do any thing you really want to do until you are successful. V. Integrity Doing the right thing even when nobody is watching you. Examples: Showing great self control in class even if the instructor is not watching, following rules at school when the teacher cannot see you, obeying the speed limit when there are no police around.
