Promotion from one geup to the next can proceed rapidly in some schools, since schools often allow geup promotions every two, three, or four months. Students of geup rank learn the most basic techniques first, and then move on to more advanced techniques as they approach first dan. Many of the older and more traditional schools often take longer to allow students to test for higher ranks than newer, more contemporary schools, as they may not have the required testing intervals.

Taekwondo Tenets


Physically, taekwondo develops strength, speed, balance, flexibility, and stamina. An example of the union of mental and physical discipline is the breaking of wooden boards, bricks or tiles, which requires both physical mastery of the technique and the concentration to focus one's power.

There are five tenets defined in the International Taekwondo Federation (ITF) and several more in World Taekwondo (WT).

 

Courtesy ( Ye Ui / 예의 )

Showing courtesy to all, respecting others, having manners as well as maintaining the appropriate etiquette at all times, both within and outside the dojang (도장) (designated training area)

 

Integrity ( Yeom Chi / 염치 )

Although it may be similar, this form of integrity takes on a more wider role then defined in the common dictionary. In Taekwondo, integrity means not only to determine what is right or wrong but also having the conscience to feel guilt if one has done wrong and to have the integrity stand up for what is right

 

Perseverance ( In Nae / 인내 )

One will persevere time and time again until they have achieved a result which is adequate towards what one was trying to achieve

 

Self-control ( Geuk Gi / 극기 )

This means to not only have control over one's physical acts, but also their mental thoughts and actions

 

Indomitable spirit ( Baekjul Boolgool / 백절불굴 )

To have indomitable spirit means to have the courage to stand up for what you believe in, no matter what odds you are up against, and to always give 100% effort in whatever you do
