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.

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.

Belt Testing

Exams are an important part of your Taekwondo training at W.O.W. Exams give you an opportunity to show your instructors, fellow students and families that you understand and can competently demonstrate the techniques and knowledge listed in the curriculum for your current rank.

Exams are not meant to be easy, but remember that you are invited to test only after your instructor believes you are ready. It is a good idea to think of each exam as a challenge to be enjoyed, rather than an ordeal to be endured. The atmosphere at an exam is energetic and supportive. Remember that our mission is to help you succeed.

The following prerequisites apply to color belt exams:

Attend a minimum of 24 classes during a three month period.*
Earn four stripes
Receive your instructor’s approval.
*High Red Belts must attend a minimum of 32 classes during a four month period.

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.

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.
