View Full Version : Help with Traditions
Help, my 13 year old sister just earned her black
belt in Tae Kwon Do, and we are trying to find out if there is a
traditional gift that a student would give her instructor at this
time. any info would be a great help.
To my knowledge, there is no tradition of the student giving something back to the instructor. I would suggest however, a nice card from student to instructor, thanking him/her for their time and knowledge offered. Most instructors are more than happy to see the joy of accomplishment on their students faces and know that they have secured a meaningful spot in someones life. :bow:

Bump wat Sidekick said...a card would be a nice gesture...anything else might be seen as inappropriate. Peace
...anything else might be seen as inappropriate.
I don't think you should worry about a gift seeming inappropriate. It all depends on how well you know (and how close you are with) your instructor.
I know my Master Instructor very well, and we're also pretty tight, so I usually get him a 12-pack of Corona (w/lime) for his birthday or any other special event that we might be at together. Although, since you're not 21, I neither recommend, endorse, nor suggest that route. :D
If you know that your instructor likes tea, then see about getting him/her a box of tea. If you know of a particular restaurant that he/she likes, you could see about getting a gift certificate from there. One of my students gave me a small desk palque of one of those inspirational posters defining the word "Leadership" (I was quite pleased with this).
Just some thoughts,
