What is a Taekwondo Grading Exam?

The grading is a physical examination that Martial Artists need to take to atain their next belts.

At Taekwondo X we hold one grading exam towards the end of each term for students to have the opportunity to upgrade.

Students can attend their grading exam once they are invited.  Being invited to grade depends on how often the student trains, how much do they practice and how quickly they improve.

What is the meaning of the belts?

Students start at white belt and have to attain 10 more belts until their black belt.

On rare occasions a student can double promote. This means that they skip their next belt and automatically gain the one above.

This is quite rare and for studnets to double promote they must achieve excellence throughout their entire grade.

How do gradings work?

In order to obtain an official grading certificate, you must assist and successfully pass an official grading.

At Taekwondo X we have different Masters and Instructors who are qualified to run gradings and issue certificates.

At Taekwondo X we are proud to offer Taekwondo lessons in schools for those who can’t attend our clubs and facilitate the possibility for kids to attend an official taekwondo grading.

The gradings are held in the main Dojang, at Kings Hall Community Centre, in Willesden Green.

No visitors or companions of any kind are allowed during the exam. Only students who are currently grading at each time slot are permitted to be present while the exam is taking place.

It is a high achievemnt to be invited and qualified to assist a grading at Taekwondo X, so we hope you can attend.

What happens if you can’t/don’t want to do a grading exam?

Pupils who don’t wish to take their grading exam can equally train in classes and learn the skills of Taekwondo without the need to upgrade to their next belt, although it’s recommended as they are learning a life skill, martial art and can one day achive their black belt by assisting to their gradings.

In order to obtain an official grading certificate, you must assist and successfully pass an official grading.

Congratulations for being invited to the grading and best of luck! 

REGISTRATION FOR THIS EXAM IS NOW CLOSED.
