question_answer

How often should I be attending classes?

Because training regularly is important, we use attendance cards to record each student’s attendance. Attending two to three classes each week should enable you to see the progress and results that you desire.

When you arrive for class, find your attendance card on the rack located inside the Dojang. You can review the study materials on the back of the card and the training on the requirements on the front as you stretch before class. You are responsible for all of the material on your attendance cards during exams.

When class starts, bring your card when you line up. Instructors collect the cards at the beginning of every class. The instructors not only record attendance, but also check off the training requirement for each rank to help keep you on track toward your goals.

All cards are color-coded according to belt color, except the grey card, which are for Black Belts.

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.

Black Belts

Students advance to First Dan Black Belt from Deputy Black Belt after a minimum of 6 months training period. Higher Dan ranks, which are outside the scope of this guide, follow the first Dan rank.

Stripe System

Whenever the instructor feels that you understand and can competently demonstrate the particular requirement, you can earn a tip on your belt. After the first stripe is earned, the instructor will award another stripe when the next of the requirement belt is mastered. After all the requirements for advancing to the next rank are demonstrated, testing information will be given to the student.

White Stripe is for Poomse
Yellow Stripe is for Self-Defense
Green Stripe is for Sparring
Blue Stripe is for Breaking

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.
question_answer

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.

What is the dress code at WOW Taekwondo?

The standard uniform is the Taekwondo Dobok; a top and a pair of pants designed for comfort and durability during training. All students should have a full set of patches on their Dobok before advancing to the High White Belt level. The set of patches consists of the American Flag and the Korean Flag.

WOW T-shirts are allowed to be worn during Stretching – and Sparring/Fitness class. The full uniform should be worn in all other classes

A belt indicating rank is worn at the waist. Your instructor will go over the meaning and proper care of your uniform and belt.

Unless told otherwise, you should wear your Dobok to all school events.

During class, all jewelry except for wedding bands must be removed.

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.
