Dan Candidates who do not pass the test on their first examination will be charged a $50.00 re-test fee for each subsequent evaluation.
Our goal is for all Dan Candidates to have sufficient preparation so that they never have to re-test.
The Dan Test is not a time for learning and making corrections. It is a time to show their knowledge, the application of that knowledge and their preparedness to be advanced to another level.
No one, students testing for Kups or Dans, should be sent to a test to "see if they can pass". It is the instructor's responsibility to ensure that each student sent to a test is fully prepared and capable of reaching a new level.
We need to maintain the dignity of Dan Tests. Promotion is not based on number of months or years; but, on results of hard work, dedication and knowledge of the art of Taekwon Do. Testing for a black belt will not be for everyone; however, those who are willing to strive and make the full commitment to earning a high level of proficiency, will succeed.
