Tenets of Scientia-Do

Scientia-Do embraces the five central tenets (fundamental beliefs)  set down by the founder of Tae Kwon-Do. Students are strongly encouraged to cultivate the five tenets in all aspects of their training. Students will not recieve their Black Belts until these tenets are understood, practiced and demonstrated.

  • Courtesy  -  The exhibition of politeness and good manners in one's attitude and behaviour towards others.

  • Integrity  -  The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles, or a lack of corruption.

  • Perseverance  -  Persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

  • Self-Control  -  The ability to control oneself (particularly emotions and desires), especially in difficult situations.

  • Indomitable Spirit  -  An attitude that cannot be subdued or overcome (the will or courage of a person).
