British Taekwondo has now announced significant changes to the structure and process of Dan Grading (as Master Elias has been telling us they might).
Dan Gradings from 1st to 3rd Dan will now be enabled at Club level, led and examined by a panel with a 6th Dan Instructor and two 4th Dan Instructors as a minimum (Master Elias and Master Gemma are of course both 7th Dan).
These club gradings will be supplemented by two National Dan Grading sessions led by British Taekwondo. Applications for 4th Dan and above will continue to be examined at the British Taekwondo National Dan Gradings.
Full details are available from British Taekwondo.
We will post news items here, including term schedules, gradings and competitions
