Black Belt Testing Requirements










1st Degree Black Belt (Cho Dan):

From this point in your training, you are expected to know everything you have been taught, and any and all previous material can be requested at a test. While this is true for any practitioner, it is an especially valid assumption for anyone training to be a Kyosa Nim (Certified Teacher).

Testing periods are longer for Black belts and general require as many years between tests as there are levels, i.e. it take two years to become 2nd degree, three years to become 3rd degree and so forth. These tend to be minimums, with your instructor making the final determination as to your readiness.

Black belts are expected to re-certify every year to demonstrate their commitment, knowledge, ability, and continued growth.

Cho Dan 1st Re-certification:
  • Hand and foot combinations
  • Pyung Ahn E-Dan and Sip Soo
  • Ill Soo Sik: Pyung Ahn One Steps 1 and 2,
  • *Ho Sin Sol: Side Wrist Grip #1 and #2, From Behind #3, 2 Gun Defense
