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.

Exam Registration

Students must submit a completed Examination Form at least two days before the exam date. When completing your application, make sure to include your belt size and current belt rank. All Examination Forms and testing fees should be handed in no later than the Thursday prior to testing.

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.

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.

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.

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.
