 KUP GRADING SYLLABUS

 



OVERVIEW

 



THIS KUP GRADE SYLLABUS IS A GUIDE FOR INSTRUCTORS TO ASSIST THEM IN RELATION TO PREPARING STUDENTS FOR AN EVENTUAL BLACK BELT DAN GRADING.

 

HOWEVER, ANY INSTUCTOR RUNNING A CLUB IS FREE TO DECIDE THE
SYLLABUS FOR KUP GRADE ADVANCEMENT.

 

THIS SYLLABUS HAS BEEN DESIGNED AS A GUIDE FOR INSTRUCTORS TO USE IF THEY SO WISH, TO SLOWLY BRING STUDENTS UP TO STANDARD TO THEN GO ON TO DAN PROMOTION TESTS WITH THEIR MAIN ASSOCIATION.

 

IT SHOULD BE READ TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE CURRENT TKD DAN GRADE SYLLABUS.

 

TAEKWONDO IS FOR EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF AGE, GENDER OR RELIGIOUS AND CULTURAL BELIEFS AND FURTHERMORE PHYSICAL DISABILITIES SHOULD NOT HINDER A PERSONS INVOLVEMENT IN TAEKWONDO OR IN THE PROMOTION OF BELT
ADVANCEMENT.

 

IN PARTICULAR, AGE, PERMINENT INJURY OR A DISABILTY SHOULD  ALWAYS BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT DURING ANY TKD ENGLAND KUP GRADING.

 

TAKING THIS INTO ACCOUNT, THE STANDARD REQUIRED TO PASS ANY DISCIPLINE DURING A KUP PROMOTION TEST WILL INCREASE DEPENDANT UPON THE KUP
BEING APPLIED FOR. FOR EXAMPLE, A HIGHER TECHNICAL STANDARD WILL BE REQUIRED IN  ALL DISCIPLINES FOR CANDIDATES TAKING 4TH KUP THAN IF TAKING 6TH KUP AND SO ON UP TO 1ST KUP.

 

AS OUR DESIRE IN TKD ENGLAND IS TO RAISE THE STANDARD IN ALL  AREAS WHILE IN PARTICULAR PRODUCING EXCELLENCE IN POOMSAE AND KYRUGI
COMPETITORS, OUR ADVISORY KUP GRADE SYLLABUS SHOULD REFLECT THIS WHEN EXAMINERS ARE MARKING KUP GRADE CANDIDATES.

 

EMPHASIS IN MARKING BY ANY 4TH DAN KUKKIWON CERTIFIED KUP GRADE EXAMINER (OR ITS EQUIVALENT) SHOULD THEREFORE BE GEARED TOWARDS POOMSAE AND SPARRING.

 

WHERE ANY REGISTERED CLUB DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A 4TH DAN KUKKIWON REGISTERED GRADING EXAMINER, ADVICE SHOULD BE SOUGHT FROM A SUITABLY QUALIFIED INSTRUCTOR SO A SUITABLE EXAMINER CAN BE
ARRANGED TO GIVE THE NECESSARY ASSISTANCE.

 

FULL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT IS COMPULSORY IN RESPECT OF CONTACT SPARRING OR CONTACT SELF DEFENCE OR ONE STEP, SHOULD INSTRUCTORS DECIDE 

CONTACT WILL BE USED IN ANY PART OF THE GRADING EXAMINATION.

 

KOREAN TERMINOLOGY SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED BUT AS AN ADVISORY SHOULD NOT BE USED AS A COMPULSORY PART OF ANY KUP GRADING EXAMINATION UNLESS THE INSTRUCTOR WISHES FOR THIS TO BE THE CASE.

 

THE TERMINOLGY SHOWN FOR EACH KUP CAN ALSO SERVE AS A GUIDE FOR INSTRUCTORS TO USE WHEN TEACHING SHOULD THEY WISH TO GIVE INSTRUCTION IN KOREAN.
