Do Jang

A do jang is an area where young and old, men and women, regardless of race or creed, come to learn Taekwon-Do for the promotion of their mental, moral, physical and cultural education. It should be a place where a certain "esprit de corps" between members can be established with a common goal of promoting and cultivating a noble character. Certainly, to fill the prerequisites necessary to attain these ideas, a well-trained-mentally and physically-black belt instructor is needed. This is the primary consideration for any do-jang. The hall itself must also have the facilities, equipment, and strict regulations to help discipline the student''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s mind and body.

The size of the do jang and equipment to be used can be flexible according to the circumstances and individual choice. Again, the only thing that cannot be compromised is the quality of the instructor.
