Traditional Moo Duk Kwon Tae Kwon Do

Testing Requirements

Tae Kwon Do is both mental and physical training, students should try their best during class so that it would reflect how well they might test for a higher rank. Students that don't try their best during testing will result in failing their belt testing and will have to retest at a later time. The judge may take into account that a student may be nervous when a student makes a mistake and allow that student to try again to see if that may be the case.
