Integrity: The Second Tenet of Taekwondo


At every class we mention “integrity” in the process of reciting the 6 tenets of Taekwondo.  What is this thing called “integrity”?

For kids, this is such a big word and seems like an abstract concept.  However, it doesn’t have to be abstract.

Integrity, in simple terms is all about staying true to yourself and others.  Here are a few more things about what integrity is.

Integrity is…

  • Promising your mom that you’ll clean your room, and you did!
  • Picking up and giving back money that someone else dropped, and nobody around noticed.
  • Playing dodge ball, getting hit, and admitting you did even when no one else noticed.
  • Admitting you did something wrong even when the consequences might hurt.
  • Owning up to your responsibilities.
  • Giving credit where credit is due, especially when credit is due elsewhere.
  • Paying the $10 you owe someone on or before the due date.

Can you think of other good examples of integrity?  If so, just comment below.
