Parents keep monthly report cards, designed by Master Tiger Kim,
which encourages children to create good positive habits at home,
such as finishing tasks, keeping their room clean and listening
to parents. Every month children bring this report card to class
and if they have a good parent report, they receive a "star".
EMPHASIS ON SCHOOL WORK
young people in the program are asked to bring copies of their grades
from school at the end of each marking period. Those who show improvement
in grades will be openly recognized. Those who show a drop in grades
or exhibit poor grades will be privately counseled.
USE OF SKILLS
is constantly stressed to students that they must never use Tae Kwon Do skills to be abusive or offensive, and their skills may only be used defensively.
We, the instructors, make sure to be outstanding role models for
our students and live up to the Black Belt code.
