Kukkiwon introduce new dan grading rules

The Kukkiwon has now amended the rights of all Taekwondo Masters to help improve standards and to ensure that Kukkiwon practitioners are provided a means of cooperation and partnership with all other Kukkiwon practitioners.

All Kukkiwon certified Masters of 4th Dan and above will now have to pass multi-level examiner courses to allow them to conduct Kukkiwon dan promotions. After attaining their examiner licence they are then eligable to recommend up to 2nd dan and become a possible examiner on a grading panel.

The changes will take effect from 1st January 2016.
