Tigers and Dragons Gradings

Grading for Tigers and Dragons

June 2017 – St Joseph’s School for the Deaf, Navan Road, Dublin 7

Dear Parents,

The final event in your child’s Taekwon-Do development programme for the year is their grading (exam) for their stripe or new belt. The grading’s will be held during your child’s normal class time apart from the Dragons which will take place on a Friday evening. The grading times are arranged according to their class group and are shown below. There will be no classes during these times.

If this is your child’s first grading can you please give Master Howard two passport size photographs (name on the back) and the grading fee of €25 by Saturday the 3rd of June?

If your child has graded before can you please give Master Howard their licence (green grading book) and the grading fee of €25 by Saturday the 3rd of June?

I have given your child a sheet with everything they need to know for the exam. They will need to be able to perform the physical aspects of the test and know all their Korean words, goals and the code. Please help them to do a little bit of practice every evening.

Please note the following

Wear a clean ironed dobok for your test. Only wear a white t-shirt or vest underneath (no colours).

Arrive 10 minutes early.

As this is an exam you will need to be quiet while the other children are being examined. It may not be suitable to bring younger siblings to the exam as they will be expected to sit still and be quiet for a long time.

Finally, classes will continue until Friday 23rd June. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Master Howard
