The Ideal Taekwon-Do Instructor

Soldiers are as strong as the general who leads them, and, in a like manner, students can only excel under an excellent instructor. We cannot expect a bamboo to grow in a field of reeds, nor can we expect to find an outstanding pupil under an unqualified teacher.

It is of particular importance that the two aspects of TaeKwon-Do, the spirit and the technique, must be taught together. Therefore, a qualified instructor must combine the qualities of a scholar and a soldier if he is to produce pupils of noble character and outstanding skills.

Such an instructor must possess the following qualities:

  • Strong moral and ethical standard.
  • Clear outlook and philosophy in life.
  • Responsible attitude as an instructor.
  • Scientific mind in matters of technique.
  • Knowledge of the vital spots of human anatomy.
  • Unshakable integrity in political and financial dealings.
  • Dedication to spread the art of TaeKwon-Do throughout the world.

One who gains confidence from his seniors is trusted by his fellow instructors, and is respected by his juniors.
