Your Taekwon do Dojang is simply the place where you train. “Do" means discipline, art, or way, and “Jang” means “place”. Therefore, Dojang literally means "the place where you practice the arts”. How to Bow: Stand in "attention" with heels together and feet turned out 45 degrees (forming a V position) with the hands on the sides and lightly clenched fists, keeping eyes forward and bending at the waist 15 degrees. It is very important to respect the Taekwon do Dojang. You should stop and bow as you enter or leave the Dojang. To bow shows respect to the place, your instructors, students and respect to Taekwon do. It's also important to line up right, standing in the ready stand position. The highest ranked student stands at the front of the class on the right side. The next highest grade stands on his or her left, and so on. When the front row is full, the next student stands in the second row behind the highest ranked student, and so on.
On your first class, we suggest new white belts to head to the back left corner of the Taekwon do Dojang and line up level with the person at the far right of the row, standing directly behind the student in front.
If a student the same grade as another Taekwon do student, we suggest to stand on the left of them if the students are younger than them, or if they have been training less time than them. It is generally much better to stand in the position of the lower grade. It shows courtesy and respect.
