How Kukkiwon Certification works
To obtain Kukkiwon certification you need to be recommended by a qualified Kukkiwon certified Master who is the same nationality as the candidate or resides in the same country as the candidate, having done so for more than 6 months. You will not be able to go to another country for the purpose of being tested and an foreign examiner may not recommend a person for Kukkiwon qualification. It is not true that only WTF member National Associations can apply for Kukkiwon applications.
