Grading tests are conducted four times a year allowing members to be formally tested for their knowledge of the different curriculum for their specific belt levels. Passing the Grading test will enable the members to progress to the next level. Within each belt category, a stripe represent another level achieved. A probationary level of black tip may be made available to some members before they progress to the next belt category if required to assist with further trainiing.  The first or entry level is White Belt for beginners from novice to 10th Gup (additional novice levels apply for ages 4-7 years old).


Black Belts then continue on to 4th Dan to 10th Dan being the highest level as a Master in Taekwondo

Members are required to wear their full Taekwondo uniform (dobok) and belt (dee) during Grading. Protective equipment should be worn for sparring. Taekwondo shoes are recommended to be worn.
