                         WORDS OF WISDOM
                        WHY AND WHEN TO BOW
         The most important thing a beginner taekwondo student can do is respect the Dojang.You should stop and bow as you walk in the Dojang door. And as you leave. Why?     You are bowing as a sign of respect to taekwondo, your instructor and to your fellow students.   Stand with your feet together. Have your straight arms by your sides with your fists closed. Now bow your head down. And follow it with a slight bow of the shoulders and a slight bend from the waist. When you greet a taekwondo instructor or black belt you should bow  like this, but with your left arm bent horizontally across your front. Then you can shake hands with your right hand. It’s also good practice to greet fellow students this way. Especially as a beginner taekwondo student
