Being able to determine right from wrong and have a conscience; if wrong, to feel guilt.

Continuing strength or patience, withstanding difficulties or resistance when striving for a goal. Adherence to moral principles in the face of opposition.

Self-Control

An extremely important tenet for Taekwondo students inside and outside the Dojang whether conducting one's self in free sparring or in one's personal affairs. A loss of self control can prove disastrous. An inability to work within one's capability is also lack of self-control.

Indomitable Spirit
