GRADINGS


We all progress through our Taekwondo journey at our own pace, but if you train regularly and you want to progress through the belts, then you will be invited to grade.


Colour Belt gradings occur quarterly each year and take place in Great Parringdon Sports Club in Harlow, Essex. The gradings are presided over by TAGB Treasurer and 9th Dan Grand Master Ron Sergiew, along with a panel of Black  Belt Instructors (including yours truly!)


These can be nerve-racking and sometimes daunting, but if you have trained regularly and know your stuff then you should have no problems. It is my job as an Instructor to ensure you are ready to grade and the percentage of students passing is usually very high.

RULES OF THE DOJANG - RESPECT!


Tae Kwon-Do teaches respect and has a strong sense of moral codes. This is what is so appealing about the sport in a time when respect for others, respect for authority  and a general moral compass are mostly lacking in society. Young children thrive in  such an environment 

Rules of the Dojang

THE INSTRUCTOR HAS THE RIGHT TO REFUSE INSTRUCTION TO ANY INDIVIDUAL AT HIS/HER DISCRETION.

 

  1. Bow to your Instructor and when entering and leaving the dojang (training area). This is to show your respect and to symbolise your modesty.
  2. Do not enter or leave the lesson without permission from your instructor.
  3. All students should be courteous and understanding. Senior students are expected to set a good example to new students.
  4. Loud conversation, laughing in excess and chewing gum have no place in a Tae Kwon-Do school.
  5. Your dobok (uniform) must be clean and tidy at all times.
  6. Any substitute Instructor should be treated as your regular Instructor.
  7. Do not demonstrate or teach Tae Kwon-Do without the approval/permission of your Instructor.
  8. Do not engage in any activity that is against the five tenets of Tae Kwon-Do, or that may harm the reputation of your school.
  9. You must train with your Instructor at your registered school on a regular basis.
  10. You must hand your licence book into your Instructor prior to each grading.

The Tenets of Tae Kwon-Do

Tae Kwon-Do’s moral values are similar to the values stressed throughout society as a whole. There are five basic tenets that have been adopted from Korea’s ancient warrior societies. 


  1. Courtesy
  2. Integrity 
  3. Perseverance 
  4. Self Control 
  5. Indomitable Spirit
