Dan grading rules change in 2016

Category : Uncategorised

The way in which Dan grading’s are to be conducted and the ability for Masters to conduct them will all change as of January 2016.

Kukkiwon certified Masters will only be able to recommend Dan promotion up to and including 2nd Dan; 3rd Dan and above must be conducted by an approved panel. Anyone who wishes to be eligible to sit on the panel and to promote over 4th Dan must be of appropriate rank, have qualified on one of the Kukkiwon Foreign Instructors Courses and passed the Kukkiwon Poom/Dan Examiners course.

The Kukkiwon have requested that a Kukkiwon branch be set up in each country that is open to all Kukkiwon qualified masters irrespective of affiliation.
