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.

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.

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.

Before Exam Day

Shortly before your exam, invite your family and friends. Ask them to bring cameras and camcorders, and let them know they can cheer you on as much and as long as they want.

Find people and review your exam requirements with them. Other students, especially Black Belts and class leaders, are always happy to help you prepare.

On Exam Day

Please don’t get too nervous. Exam times are actually fun!

Arrive no later than 15 minutes before the exam time. You can use the time to warm up and stretch and ask any last-minute questions.

Wear a full uniform, including a full set of patches. Uniforms should be cleaned and neatly pressed.

Bring your safety gear. This is required for all belt levels except White Belts testing for High White. Students who do not have their safety gear will be asked to test at another time.

Just before the exam, everyone being tested lines up just as they would in a regular class. An instructor leads a warm-up, and the exam begins.

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.

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.

Bowing to the flags

When you enter and leave the Dojang, bow to the flags. Only martial art shoes may be worn in the Dojang. However, students are encouraged to practice without shoes. If you do decide to wear martial art shoes those shoes should not be worn anywhere other than the Dojang.

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.
