The Grandmaster Chun TKD Sabanim Promise

  • To teach each class as if it were the most important class that we will ever teach.
  • To teach our students reliable, useful and safe Martial Arts Skills so that they can defend themselves if every other peaceful option has been exhausted.
  • To make the process of becoming a Black Belt as much fun as it is rewarding.
  • To help students achieve Black Belt Excellence in every aspect of their lives.
  • To earn the respect, loyalty and continued patronage of our students each and every day... one class at a time.

Black Belt Oath I accept with honor and privilege, the Black Belt in Martial Arts, and hereby swear to uphold the standards of honesty, integrity, high moral code, and indomitable spirit. I sincerely pledge to honor my instructor and school with loyalty and support, and to value and carry on the Martial Arts Tradition with respect and dignity. I further pledge, with humility and gratitude, to continue my mental, physical and spiritual growth to the highest level, to lead by example, and to share what I have learned with others.

Instructors Code of Ethics

  • Be cheerful! No matter how you might feel before putting on your uniform. The moment you cinch the knot in your belt, your attitude should be awesome!
  • Be consistent! Steady attendance is a must. The instructors and students are counting on you.
  • Never be un-constructively critical. Instead be constructively helpful.
  • Be a good-finder. Look for the good in the students you're helping and tell them about it.
  • Never punish; discipline instead. Discipline is done out of love: punishment is done out of anger.
  • Give the personal touch. Understand the importance of positive touch, eye contact, and student recognition.
  • Go the extra mile. Always give more than expected.
  • Treat every student as though he/she is the most important person in the class. We should treat ALL people that way, and only then will they freely give you their friendship and their respect.
