Class Expectations

Our club follows classic traditions, including the 

Please arrive on time or you may arrive early to help with set-up and begin your warm-up. If you arrive late, please wait for the instructor to "bow you in", and then take a place in the back row. You will be invited to take your place according to belt rank following class exercises.


Belt color denotes an individual's rank in the class.  Higher ranked students have earned the privilege of lining up in the front, with lower belts behind them.  Senior belts are often given the responsibility of warming the group up and serve by teaching lower belts.  Higher belts are to model respect, service, and joy as they practice tae kwon do.

All students must be respectful (quiet and attentive) while the instructor speaks and while they wait for others to finish their work.

Address any instructor as "Sir" or "ma'am". Black Belts may be addressed according to their Korean names:

            1st Degree ChoGyo Nim

            2nd Degree                 Bu Sa Bum Nim

            3rd Degree Sa Bum Nim

            5th Degree Kwan Jang Nim
