Learn Korean

All students should learn how we begin and end class:

  • Charyut
  • Kukki ye
  • Kyungnet
  • Paro
  • Charyut
  • Sabumnim ke
  • Kyungnet

That is, we salute the national flags and then we salute the master/instructor.

This terminology is used throughout the world in Tae Kwon Do:

Attention (Charyut)
National flag (Kukki ye)
Bow (Kyungnet)
As you were (Paro)
Master (Sabumnim)
To the master Sa bum nim ke
