  • Courtesy - ye ui
    It should be in every daily act.

    The perfect sense of justice and acceptance of responsibility that each person should have.

  • Perseverance - in nae
    It defines will power and spirit of sacrifice.

  • Self-control - guk gi

  • Indomitable spirit - baekjul boolgool
    The Willingness to defend freedom.
