National Dan Grading 12th December – Application Pack now available



After a year and a half wait (thanks to the pandemic!) – we are thrilled to invite you, our British Taekwondo clubs and members to take part in a National level Black Belt grading event.

This new regular flagship event will feature one of the highest ranking grading panels the UK has seen with three 8th Dan Grand Masters and two 7th Dan Masters from a cross section of different groups within the BT family.

Our ambition is to provide a unique and memorable Black belt grading experience in a World Class Taekwondo venue at the home of GB in Manchester.

There is an updated, more exciting, and varied syllabus, providing candidates with the opportunity to test themselves against peers and show off their skills in a much more detailed format with smaller group sizes, so everyone gets a thorough and fair assessment.

We invite all British Taekwondo members and instructors to support this event and put forward students for this unique and quality Martial Art grading experience.
