Traditional Chung do Kwan Tae Kwon-Do, Inc.

Celebrating a Proud Tradition Since 1969

Etiquette and Decorum

Last update -- December 13, 2020

The Grand Master presents "Traditional" Chung do Kwan Tae Kwon-Do
Our standards are high, as we emphasize Discipline, Courtesy, and Respect

With a focus on Discipline, Courtesy and Respect, quality instruction is presented
with an emphasis on the true philosophy of Tae Kwon-Do.

As a way of life, Tae Kwon-Do is based on the ethical and moral standards by which we can live together in harmony.
We seek to eliminate violence by deterring the strong from oppressing the weak through developing a power
that must be based on humanity, justice, morality, wisdom and faith,
thus helping to build a better and more peaceful world.

Personal Etiquette (The Hand Shake)

When interacting with a person undergoing Chemotherapy treatments...
YOU SHOULD NOT ENGAGE IN THE TRADITIONAL HAND SHAKE,
as the bacteria and germs during the exchange can adversely affect an already compromised immune system


You should instead...


OFFER A "FIST BUMP" OR BETTER, AN "ELBOW BUMP"
The patient will smile as you show your thoughtfulness and consideration
