Tenets of Taekwondo

It can be difficult to discuss the tenets of Taekwondo in class.  Quite often we are too busy with patterns or kicking pads, but the tenets can be useful in life as well as in Taekwondo.

Courtesy (Ye Ui / 예의)
Integrity (Yom Chi / 염치)
Perseverance (In Nae / 인내)
Self-control (Guk Gi / 극기)
Indomitable Spirit (Baekjul Boolgool / 백절불굴)

How are the tenets part of your life?
