National Dan Grading – Sunday 19th June 2022

National Dan Grading at the National Taekwondo Centre in Manchester.

British Taekwondo is pleased to release the full invitation pack for the National Dan Grading due to take place in Manchester on Sunday 19th June.

We invite you, our British Taekwondo clubs and members to take part in a National level Black Belt grading event.

Ian Leafe, CEO of British Taekwondo said, “We are excited to once again be able to bring the British Taekwondo family together at the home of Taekwondo in Manchester.”

“The grading will be a robust and high-quality examination that will give candidates a memorable experience and we invite all British Taekwondo members and instructors to support this National Dan Grading and put forward students for the event.”

This flagship event will again 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 British Taekwondo 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.
