  15. Each student is a member of our family, therefore it would be appreciated if you would let us know if you are ill, are too busy, going on vacation, or will be absent for an extended period. Changes affecting your training are our concern, stop by or call to let us know.
  16. All students are responsible to keep the dojang clean.

  20. Always show respect to your seniors and each other and take it upon yourself to help and encourage your juniors.

These rules are for the benefit of all HAPKIDO students. Violation can lead to belt suspension, or permanent dismissal from the school. Even if you are unable to take part physically in class a student can learn by watching class what is done right by classmates and what is done wrong as well as the why and how of it. It is for your own good that you need to attend class regularly. What you are studying is something special, keep this in mind when you meet and greet one another outside the dojang. Always use your HAPKIDO manners in greeting your classmates/ instructors anywhere. It is through HAPKIDO that you know them so use your HAPKIDO manners. 

 

We wish you all excellent health and great happiness with Hapkido training.
