TESTING
Students test in front of a panel of judges. We hold 3 testings a year, at the end of each semester. Students MUST know the material. Just showing up for class does NOT mean a student is ready to test. Students MUST come to class, try while they are in class.
Students that are in constant disrespect IN and OUT of the Taekwon-do classroom can be denied testing or even banned from attending class. We expect all students to learn the Tenets and Student Oath and have it in practice at all times.

It takes approx. 5 years for a student to earn their Black Belt.
