Review
Each belt rank has a curriculum which is specific to that level of training. The curriculum is outlined in segments which correlate to the weekly lesson topics outlined above. A copy of the curriculum is included in this manual so that students can study and practice independently. However, regular class attendance is mandatory and self-teaching at or above your level is strongly discouraged.

Scheduled Exams

Once a student has earned all of the required stripes, the instructor will issue an Examination Form. Colored belt examinations are conducted on a monthly basis. Little Warriors examinations are also conducted once a month and are always on a Saturday morning.

This is a special day. Students are encouraged to bring friends and family members to watch their exam and take pictures and/or videos. Lower rank belts are encouraged to attend the color belt exam to learn what is expected of them in the future. And all students are encouraged to attend belt exams to show support for their Taekwondo family members.

Belt Ranking System

As you train, you will progress through various Taekwondo ranks. The lower ranks (called Kub in Korean) are indicated by colored belts. The higher black belt ranks (called Dan in Korean, or Degree in English) follow the Kub ranks. Each Kub rank is associated with a belt color. For each belt color, there is also a high Kub rank. Belts for the high Kub ranks are striped in color of the belt of the next rank. New students have no belt at all until they learn basic introductory material, and have no Kub rank. White belt students also do not have a Kub rank.

Kub Ranks

The following lists the Kub ranks and Deputy Black Belt rank, and the typical time required to advance to the next rank. Advancement is accomplished by competently demonstrating the requirements of each rank in public exams.

After working through the Kub ranks, students become eligible to advance to the lowest Dan rank, Deputy Black Belt (Bo Dan in Korean). The requirements for advancement to Deputy Black Belt are more rigorous than the requirements for advancing to even the highest Kub rank.

Rank Levels

In addition to the usual rules of etiquette, we follow some rules that are specific to the Dojang. These rules are based on traditional Asian values of respect and courtesy. Students of lower belt rank bow to students of higher rank. The senior students return the bow.

How to address your instructors and peers

Instructors and senior black belts are addressed as “sir” or “ma’am”. When addressing the instructor or senior black belt, use the appropriate title, such as “Mr. Edwards” or “Mrs. Edwards”. Black belts holding a rank of fourth degree or higher are addressed as “Master”, such as “Master Fleming”. A black belt indicates rank by the number of gold stripes tipping in the belt.

Class Times

Class time is especially respected. If you remain in the Dojang during a class, but are not participating, stay quietly in the back of the room. Do not interrupt a class. You can use the time to stretch or study the curriculum printed on the back of your attendance card.

What are the safety requirements

All students are required to wear safety gear during their training. Though safe, Taekwondo is a contact sport and your safety is our first concern. With proper safety gear you will be able to learn techniques more effectively and realistically, while limiting the potential of injury to yourself and others.

White Belt
Foot and hand gear are optional, but recommended.
High White Belt
Foot and hand gear are mandatory.
Yellow Belt & Up
Chest and headgear as well as groin cup and mouth guard are also mandatory.
Please ensure to keep all gear together in an equipment bag. Proper safety gear can be purchased at WOW Taekwondo™. Students should have their names clearly written on their gear.

Students must bring their safety gear to each class they attend. Additionally, safety gear is required at belt exams and tournaments.

Personal Items

Please make sure your name is on all your equipment. WOW Taekwondo™ is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Personal items should be taken home with you at the end of class. Items left behind will be placed in the Lost and Found and if not claimed after 1 week, it will be donated to charity.
