Grading

Gradings

  • Gradings/Belt tests are what we use to progress students through the ranks from white belt to black belt.

  • These are held three - four times a times a year towards the end of each school term.

  • For each grading we have a visiting instructor participate in the conducting of the event so we can gauge how your students compare to other clubs.

  • Occasionally we will do joint gradings with one or more of our sister clubs which is a larger event and gives the students to show off their hard work and meet other practitioners for other clubs in our network.

  • With consistent training, a student can achieve a black belt within 3 years.

The belts progress

Our belt system follows the World Taekwondo (WT) Format which is the standard set by the World Taekwondo Headquarters, Kukkiwon based in Seoul, Korea. This is the standard recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) used to be eligible to compete in the Olympic Games.
