RANK CERTIFICATION & EXAMINATION PROCESS
We offer duplicate rank certificates to members; promotional certificates to individuals processed by a member dojang and or organization; and examinations. All persons seeking promotion by the Korea Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan Association to the rank of 7th Dan and above must first meet standard time in grade and promotional requirements and submit to an Examination via interactive video conference by a 3 person Korea Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan Examination panel.
Korea Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan Association does not issue rank without an examination. This practice is considered unethical and irresponsible and brings dishonor to those who have earned it the traditional way. Rank must continue to be earned and not given or it has no meaning.
