To bow or not to bow

We are taught not to bow to anyone or anything other than the Guru Granth Sahib. I am in a bit of a dilemma when it comes to this. My parents have put me in mixed martial-arts (taekwondo) so I can learn how to fight. In taekwondo, you have to bow to your instructor, the assistant instructors, masters, senior belts, etc. We have to bow to them, otherwise, you get into deep trouble. I don't know what to do because we are not allowed to bow to anyone other than the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, but I have to bow to others in my taekwondo. Please help this worthless Sikh.
