Syllabus

We offer a variety of classes open to the public in the South London area.

Yellow Tag, 9th Kup

General Notes

The aim of this syllabus is to keepstudents focussed and motivated as they progress through the official ITF Taekwon-Do grading programme. There are ten grades from white belt (beginner level) to black belt (proficiency). Students advance to the next grade by taking a formal grading examination.

For each section below successfully completed, adults receive a credit and juniors are awarded a unique badge. Students can take on average three assessments to achieve all sections. However, ti is possible for a student to complete all sections in one sitting. When all badges or sections have been achieved, students are awarded the grade of Yellow Belt.

Yellow Tag Awards

All of the following 11 sections must be completed before students are promoted to Yellow Belt (8th Kup). Yellow tag students must attend a minimum of eight sessions (and a minimum of one month’s training) before attending their first assessment.
