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.

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.

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.

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.
