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.
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.

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.
question_answer

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.
question_answer

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.
question_answer

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.
question_answer

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.

question_answer

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
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.
question_answer

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.
question_answer

Class Times

Class time is especially respected. If you remain in the Dojang during a class, but are not participating, stay quietly in the back of the room. Do not interrupt a class. You can use the time to stretch or study the curriculum printed on the back of your attendance card.
question_answer

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.
