Shambhala Students Learn About Respect

What makes Shambhala Martial Arts different?

We train our students how to protect themselves and the people they love, and most importantly, we train our students to make Life-enriching decisions for themselves.

Shambhala Masters use the 30%-70% Teaching Rule.

Shambhala Masters know that it does little good to teach self-defense to students who continually put themselves at risk through poor judgement and dangerous life-decisions.


Self-Defense, Kicks, Punches and Weapons

Our Students are Highly Skilled in these Fighting Techniques


Shambhala Life-Skills© Philosophy

Our Students Learn how to Live their Lives with Courage, Respect, Dignity, Honor and most important, Integrity

Master Yang bowing with a Student

Respect Yourself

Come to class with clean uniform, clean teeth, hands, and feet. Take your TKD training seriously.

Respect Others

Be on time for class. Listen carefully. Follow instructions. Be friendly. (Say hello and goodbye to Master Yang and your fellow students.) Thank your parents for bringing you to class.

Respect Your Dojang

Help keep the dojang clean. Ask Master Yang, “How can I help?” Ask for permission before using any equipment or sparring. Always use your quiet, respectful voice. Leave your horseplay, loud talking, gum, cell phone and food outside the dojang. Gently remind other students how we respect ourselves, each other and our dojang.

Respect Your Home and Parents

Always greet your parents when they come home. Always say good bye when they leave. Create peaceful and helpful relationships with your parents, brothers and sisters. Help to keep your home clean (especially your bedroom). Ask, “How can I help?” Do not interrupt adult conversation. When called always say, “Coming.” Never say, “What?”. Show respect for your teachers and your parents by studying for school.
