The Black Belt Oath

“I, ____________ , do solemnly swear that I, as a Taekwondo Black Belt, will do my best to uphold the high standards of teaching within this organization. I will abide by all rules that govern The Black Belt Rank, and will obey all rules set fourth. I will do my best to promote my Association, my school and my instructor. I will never do anything that will bring dishonor to my school, my instructor or the Association. I come to you in peace. I have no weapons. My intent is not to hurt but to heal. But in defense of my family, my friends, or my loved ones, here are my weapons, my empty hands and feet.”
