Moo Do: The way of preventing conflict. Moo = military, chivalry, martial; within the ideograph the inner part of the symbol is the word for "stop" and the long brush stroke on the outer part that looks like a sword means "weapon". Do = "way"; while the character itself translates as "way," "path," or "route," or sometimes more loosely as "doctrine" or "principle," it is used philosophically to signify the fundamental or true nature of the world.
You've noticed that on the dojang wall we've combined the characters Moo Do with the kanji Yei = respect, etiquette. In Korea, Yei refers to social rules or relationships that are demonstrated through personal and social language and behavior; the way of speech, attitude, and/or behavior toward others.
No doubt you've heard Sa Bom Nim say that the rules of the school are written clearly on the wall. This holiday season we remind all of our students to strive always be peaceful, respectful and disciplined. The lesson of Moo Yei Do is a 24/7 attitude.
