Q

Student/Instructor relationship

A

1) never tire of learning. A good student can learn anywhere, anytime. This is the secret of knowledge
2) a good student must be willing to sacrifice for his art and instructor. Many students feel that their training is a commodity bought with monthly dues and are unwilling to take part in demonstrations, teaching and work around the dojang. An instructor can afford to lose this type of student.
3) Always set a good example for lower ranking students.
4) Always be loyal and never criticize the instructor, Taekwon-do or the teaching methods.
5) If an instructor teaches a technique, practice and attempt to utilize it.
6) Remember that a student’s conduct outside the dojang reflects on the art and instructor.
7) If a student adopts a technique from another dojang and the instructor disapproves of it, the student must discard it immediately or train at the gym where the technique was learned.
8) Never be disrespectful to the instructor, though a student is allowed to disagree, the student must follow instructions first and discuss the matter later.
9) A student must always be eager to learn and ask questions.
10) Never betray the instructor
