Brighton & Hove Taekwon-Do – The Stripe Syllabus
For the children’s classes we have the stripe syllabus to prepare children as they start their journey in Taekwon-Do.
The stripe syllabus breaks the 9th kup (first level) grading syllabus down into smaller stages what the teenagers and adult are required to do.
A beginner, white belt, in the adult’s/teen’s class will be required to grade to 9th kup yellow tag at one of the colour belt gradings.
For the under 13’s we break this grading syllabus down into 5 easier sections and the child is tested at each stage in the class to receive their stripe. The colour stipes are in the same order as the Taekwon-Do belts: yellow, green, blue, red, black.
Once the child gains their black stripe they are then ready to participate in sparring in the classes and are eligible to attend the Xtreme Team Junior Squad Training Sessions (must have their own sparring kit) held once each month, most months of the year.
The child with their new black stripe will then start their preparation to earn their yellow belt in Taekwon-Do. They have a lot of new movements to learn and prepare, and a new pattern; Chon-Ji. The child will be ready to grade for their yellow belt once they have learnt their new movements. They need to have practiced them so they have reached a good standard to demonstrate their ability to perform Taekwon-Do. Being ready to grade is never just about having learnt the new movements. At each level in Taekwon-Do we are looking for a standard of performance, but it is also about the progression which will be different for every student
