General Rules and Regulations
Upon entering the Dojang:-
- Students should arrive in plenty of time to allow them to register their attendance and acknowledge their seniors.
- Students either in Doboks or street clothes should bow to the front of the Dojang upon entering and bow to the Instructor on the floor as soon as they enter the Dojang. This should be done without exception. The student does not have to wait for the Instructor to acknowledge the bow if the Instructor is busy.
- All junior ranked students should also acknowledge any other Black Belts present with the customary bow and likewise junior Dan students should acknowledge their senior Dans. The senior students should also acknowledge this courtesy unless engaged in instruction or poomse at the time.
- When the Chief Instructor or Master Instructor enters the Dojang for the beginning of classes:-
- Highest ranking member present should clap to bring the students to attention,
- Should declare ‘Charyut (attention), Kyung-ne (bow).
Whenever any Master enters, if he/she is in their Dobok or not, they should be bowed to. The first person who sees the Master, should clap and bring the class to attention, then the highest ranking member should give the command ‘Charyut, Kyung-ne.’ The class may then resume.
- Entering class when it is already in progress:-
- Walk to the front side of the class and wait to be acknowledged by the Instructor – request permission to join the class by way of a polite bow.
- If leaving class early or leaving the room briefly, approach the Instructor and ask permission.
When wishing to talk to another member of the Club while in the Dojang, exchange bows initially, the lower ranking member bowing first.
- When you are training, try to clear your mind of any problems outside of the Club.
- Keep your body reasonably clean:-
- Free from odour,
- Fingernails and toenails clipped and clean.
- If you start to bleed, for any reason – seek medical attention immediately – there are first-aid kits in each of the Dojangs along with trained personnel.
- If you have a severe cold or contagious disease of any type, do not attend classes.
- Wash your Dobok regularly and keep it neatly pressed.
- No wearing of watches, medallions, or necklaces.
- Wedding rings may be worn if they cannot be easily removed, but should be covered with tape to reduce the likelihood of injury.
- No profanities should be uttered while in the Dojang.
- No gum chewing or candy consumption for safety and courtesy reasons.
- No alcohol or drugs should be consumed before attending classes.(Remember : the better you are to your body, the better it will perform for you!)
- The drinking of water during class is permitted in small quantities for the prevention of heat cramps, heat exhaustion, dehydration and heat stroke, but this should only be done at appropriate times, designated by your Instructor.
- Keep your temper under control. Bad tempers cause accidents!
- The light-contact rule is preferred ; however, it is realised that accidents will happen occasionally.
- When training for competitions :-
- Groin protectors should be worn,
- Mouth guards should be worn,
- Shin and arm guards are encouraged.
- Club badges should be displayed on Doboks in the appropriate manner.
- If you attend classes at another Moo Duk Kwan Club, or indeed any other Taekwondo Club, behave in a manner befitting your rank and Club Association.
- If you visit a Club of another style, make sure you know what their rules are and abide by them. If they single you out as a target – Leave! You are not a target nor should you make one of another person.
- If a member of another Moo Duk Kwan Club in particular, or a member from another Taekwondo Club comes, treat them as you would a member of your own Club. Members from other Martial Art styles attending classes are permitted only if special permission is granted by the Chief or Master Instructor.
- Respect for your Club members is encouraged. We are all members of the Moo Duk Kwan Family!
