CODE OF CONDUCT

We believe members should always act in ways that acknowledge pride in Ssang Yong Kwan and themselves. Ssang Yong Kwan members are expected to always use common sense and are regarded as being under the centre’s discipline when on the premises or at Ssang Yong Kwan functions.

  • To maintain a comfortable atmosphere in the centre, and to allow members to train in a positive environment, we ask that members exhibit disciplined and responsible conduct

  • Ssang Yong Kwan retains the right to discipline, suspend or dismiss any member from its centre, on the grounds of unsatisfactory conduct or performance, or failure to observe any of our rules

  • Take pride in your uniform by wearing it neatly and appropriately

  • Always use common courtesy, good judgement and general good manners, which includes responding kindly and politely to the words and actions of othe

  •  Be considerate and respectful of others, which includes considering the volume of your voice, swearing and offensive language

  • Consider your own safety as well as the safety of others — be careful where you place your possessions

  • Do not chew gum

Grooming and Personal Hygiene

Taekwondo is a close contact sport. We ask that members maintain high standards of personal hygiene and keep their fingernails and toenails clean and trimmed.

Members who take part in competitions or demonstration teams should also take extra care of their personal appearance, as they are seen as role models to a broad audience. They must set a good example, as the image they project portrays the reputation of Ssang Yong Kwan.

Photography

Ssang Yong Kwan staff may take photographs of students at times, in class or at events, which may be used on our website or social media sites.

Tell us if you don’t want your photograph taken or published.
