The eight (8) characteristics of the ideal instructor:

1       Strong Moral and Ethical Standards.

2       Clear outlook and philosophy in life.

3       Responsible attitude as an instructor.

4       Scientific mind in matters of technique.

5              Knowledge of the vital spots of human anatomy.

6       Unshakable integrity in political and financial dealings.

7       Dedication to spreading the art of Taekwon-Do throughout the world.

8       Ability to gain confidence from seniors, trust from fellow instructors,
                and respect by his juniors.

  
The 12 parts of the Instructor’s responsibility to the Student-Instructor relationship; 

1.    Never tire of teaching.  A good instructor can teach anywhere, anytime and
              is always ready to answer questions.

2.    An instructor should be eager for his students to surpass him; it is the ultimate 
             compliment for an instructor.  A student should never be held back.  
             If the instructor realizes his student has developed beyond his teaching 
             capabilities, the student should be sent to a higher ranking instructor. 

3.    An instructor must always set a good example for his students and never
              attempt to defraud them.

4.    The development of students should take precedence over commercialism. 
            Once an instructor becomes concerned with materialism, he will lose the
            respect of his students.

5.    Instructors should teach scientifically and theoretically to save time and energy.

6.     Instructors should help students develop good contact outside the Do-Jang.  It is an 
             instructor's responsibility to develop students outside as well as inside the Do-Jang.

7.    Students should be encouraged to visit other Do-Jangs and study other techniques. 
             Students who are forbidden to visit other Do-Jangs are likely to become rebellious. 
             There are two advantages for allowing the students to visit other gyms; not only is
              there the possibility that a student may observe a technique that is ideally suited
              for him but he may also have a chance to learn by comparing his techniques to
              inferior techniques.

8.    All students should be treated equally, there should be no favorites.
             Students should always be scolded in private, never in front of the class.

9.     If an instructor is not able to answer a student's question, he should not fabricate an  
             answer, but admit that he does not know and attempt to find the answer as soon as  
             possible. All too often will a lower degree black belt dispense illogical answers to his  
             studentsmerely because he is afraid of "losing face" because he does not
             know the answer.

10.   An Instructor should not seek favors such as cleaning the studio, doing repair
              work, etc. from his students.

11.  An instructor should not exploit his students.  The only purpose of an instructor is to produce 
              both technically and mentally excellent students.

12.   Always be honest with the students and never break a trust.
