The Tae Kwon Do Belt
and Grade System

As part of your training within Tae Kwon Do your progress and aims are very
much driven by your Tae Kwon Do Belt grade.

Every 3 months in our Tae Kwon Do Schools we offer the student if up to
standard, and having achieved the correct amount of training, the opportunity
to ‘grade’ for their higher Tae Kwon Do Belts.

To Achieve this award the Students need to perform a combined physical and
knowledge testing called a ‘Grading’, if they are successful they will be promoted
to the next Tae Kwon Do Belt.

Our Gradings are held at Kings Lynn, all of our Examiners are independent and are
7th or 8th Dan Masters.

The training duration is taken from the date when the student received their last
grading award (providing they have been continuously training).

Within T.A.G.B. the Tae Kwon Do Belts are as follows:
