Conduct in the Dojang


As much as the physical training is important, our Taekwon-do students should show respect to our instructors, Black Belts, referees and other authorities inside the dojang. This should be mirrored by showing respect for parents, teachers and friends outside the dojang.

Conduct in the Dojang

  • All students should bow upon entering and leaving the training hall Dojang.

  • Courtesy and respect should be shown towards all instructors and students at all times, both in and out of the dojang.

  • Student must answer clearly "yes sir" or "yes ma'am" to instructor at all times.

  • If you are late for class you must go to the front of the dojang and wait for the instructor to bow and signal for you to join the class.

  • Swearing and abusive language is not permitted in class at any time.

  • During training, the approved P.U.M.A. Taekwon-do uniform must be worn.

  • Always inform the instructor of any injuries you may have or if you feel unwell.

  • For safety, finger and toe nails should be kept short.

  • Remove all jewellery before training, plaster must cover new piercings.

  • Students should exchange greetings between themselves.

  • Turn around and adjust your uniform neatly prior to the class ending.


  • Parents / guardians are encouraged to stay and watch their children train, but are requested not to disturb any class instruction.

  • Parents/guardian must be present during Little Puma classes

  • Students wishing to train at another dojang for additional training should advise their instructor prior to visiting.
