  • The member standing to the left of the senior member gives the command to face the senior member and then gives the command to bow “Kyong ye”
  • The instructor gives the command to dismiss ("Hae san")
  • All clap

NOTES

  • The instructor does not recite the Oath, but can take this time to observe the students; that they are saying the oath, uniform is correct and so on. The instructor should remain in attention stance.
  • When reciting the Oath, the students face forward, right hand raised while looking straight ahead.
  • There is no longer a bow to the flag.
  • When there is more than one instructor of different ranks, the procedure to bow is as follows:
  • The senior member gives the command to face the instructors and one bow takes place. eg. For a Master and a 4th dan instructor the commands would be: "Charyot, Sahyun nim kke, Sabum nim kke, Kyong ye".

Grading

At a grading, Masters and examiners should be positioned at the front of the class, instructors in the next line, then students lined up behind. The procedure for bowing at the start and end should be as follows:

    • Bow to the Examiners, regardless of rank, and Masters should they be present but not part of the Examiners Panel for that Grading (eg "Charyot, Simsa nim kke, Sahyun nim kke, Kyong ye").
    • Recite the Oath.
    • Instructors then turn to face the students and the senior member gives the command to bow (eg "Sabum nim kke, Boosabum nim kke, Kyong ye"). 
    • Grading begins (with the host introducing the examiners and instructors) or ends (with the most senior Master or examiner saying "Hae san").

Tournaments

At a tournament, the most senior official and/or Master present should be bowed to at the start and end of the tournament by the  competitors, then followed by the officials present for the event.
