Black Belt Grading and Training Sessions

Posted: 20/08/2018

Students taking their black belt this October need to attend the three black belt sessions listed below, ON TOP of their normal training sessions ( not instead of).

Please note that these sessions and the club attended training sessions, along with correctly filled in paperwork, forms and  procedures are rigorously enforced by the TAGB.

Any details that are left out, ‘forgotten’, or incorrect, may result in the paperwork being returned and the student being told to grade next time-i.e April next year.

Please make sure that your license is up to date, and renew it early if it is due anytime in September or October this year.

Please use the PDF TAGB Black Belt grading form, with 5 copies ( there are five examiners), plus a photocopy, printed off with a cheque, all to be put into an envelope with your name and club written on the cover, Please don’t seal the envelope as I have to put your grading card and other form into the envelope. These need to be handed in at the FIRST Black belt session. 

Please ensure that your attendance card is filled in for all three sessions- don’t ‘forget’.

 

Other items to consider:

  • Can you run for 3 miles.
  • Can you do 50 press ups.
  • Can you perform all of your patterns continuously, one after the other without stopping and making no mistakes.
  • Can you perform all the set sparring-three, two and one step, and free sparring, again with no mistakes.
  • Do you know the types of line works that need to be performed and can execute it with correct stances, foot positions, hand positions.
  • Is you sparring equipment and WHITE Dobok in good condition.
  • Do you know the pattern meanings, and colour belt meanings, for all grades up to black belt.
  • Can you name all the movements in your patterns in Korean, for all of your patterns.

If so you are a black belt in the making!
