Our Grading System
For your information, there are 3 possibe results:
P = Pass, CP = Conditional Pass and F = Fail.
If your standard is terrible you will fail. We do not believe in giving out belts to keep student retention. Quality Tae Kwon-Do comes first! In the event that you fail your grading you are then given one opportunity to come back and re-grade without charge but you have to wait until the next grading.
If you get a CP, that means there were areas of your grading that were too poor for you to pass out right and you are given a set period of time to fix those areas. Your instructor will assess you during that time and then pass or fail you based on your performance. All students are given feedback after their grading to ensure that they have understood the process and what is expected of them.
