Every activity done in the class requires our Three Focus. They are the first thing taught to a student and are referred to by the instructors daily. Focus is stressed and expected in every class becoming habit for the student in everything they do.
- Eyefocus – look at the person who is speaking to you to avoid being distracted by your surroundings.
- Body focus – control your body and your movements.
- Mind focus – concentrate your thoughts on the activity al hand and clear your mind of any thoughts that may deter you from that activity.

Respect is shown and expected in every aspect of Taekwondo. It is taught in the first lesson and insisted upon from that point forward. Instructors and students show respect to one another by using “yes ma’am”, “no ma’am”, “yes sir” and “no sir”. They show respect to the school by bowing when entering or exiting the training floor and respect to the country by bowing lo the nation’s flag at the beginning and ending of every class. Most importantly the students are shown to respect themselves and their accomplishments.
