Loyalty v. Blind Loyalty
Allegiance and loyalty to a person or a cause is a good thing; it makes you trustworthy and allows you to trust that the person or cause will be loyal to you. Loyalty keeps relationships strong and stable.
However, when your loyalty allows you to be blinded to the unreasonable, illogical, improper, or illegal actions or behavior committed by the person or cause, it becomes a bad thing.
Good Taekwondo students are loyal to the art, their organizations, their schools, their instructors, and their fellow students, but they do not allow their loyalty blind them to that which is wrong. A true warrior fights beside his master in honorable battle, but when the master strays into dishonor, the true warrior will fight against his master.
