- During class, proper respect and discipline must be maintained at all times and Dojang etiquette followed by all members. The chain of command of ranks must be followed at all times.
- Should the Head instructor enter the Dojang, the presiding instructor (or highest ranking member), will call the class to attention, have them turn and face the Head instructor, and bow. The Head instructor will return the bow and either have them resume their training or instruct the class on what they are to do next.
- If it should be necessary for a student to leave the Dojang before the class is over, he must get permission from the Head instructor, unless he received permission prior to the class.
- Should a student wish to direct a question to the Head instructor, he does not do so directly, but approaches the senior member. If the senior member is unable to help him, he may ask an instructor, but the Head instructor should never be approached directly. A chain of command is established, and problems dealt with at the level where they properly belong. Proper Dojang etiquette should be observed at all times.
- There should be no unnecessary noise. Students must remain silent at all times unless instructed otherwise. Students seated at the sidelines should remain still so as not to disturb those training.
- No one is allowed to wear shoes in the Dojang. No one is permitted to chew gum or smoke in the Dojang. There shall be no food or drinks in the Dojang training area. Consider the Dojang as your home and treat it as such. The Dojang is a sacred place where the "Way" of the martial arts is taught.
- While seated on the floor, students should keep proper posture conductive to good health, with hands in fists, forearms resting on the thighs, back straight, head erect, and legs folded with the right leg on the outside of the left. No student should lean against anything when sitting or standing.
- The training place must always be kept clean and empty of any distracting items. The Dojang is a place where the "Way" of Martial Arts is taught. It is a home for those who wish to learn the Way of the Korean Martial Arts. Members should, without having to be asked, help keep the Dojang clean. All personal belongings should be kept out of the training area.
- Warm-up exercises before training and loosening-up exercises after training must be practiced by every participant in order to prepare the body and mind. Failure to do these exercises could result in pulled muscles and a lack of concentration on the part of the participant. When training, one must be in proper physical condition and focus his concentration. If he fails to do this, serious injury could result.
- The Dojang is a place of learning. It is where individuals come, not only to learn how to defend themselves physically, but mentally as well. It is the goal of the martial arts to help develop the total person. Members of a Dojang are like a family. They help each other learn from their experiences both in and out of the Dojang. Members should be proud to be accepted as part of this family. This pride should be reflected, not only in how they conduct themselves while in the Dojang but, outside the Dojang, in their normal daily activities.
- Never ask to learn advanced techniques or the next hyung (pattern). The instructor will teach you what you are qualified to learn at your level. It is disrespectful to ask for additional training when you may not yet have perfected what you are presently working on.
In general a student's attitude in the DoJang should be one of respect, quiet and attention. Show respect to the instructor, senior members and especially the Master Instructor. During class, the instructor is the only member who will be talking. Students will remain quiet and attentive, making no unnecessary noise. When answering a question or following some direction, answer: "Yes, sir." Obey the instructor's commands quickly and carefully.
