Rank Evaluation and Certification Overview:

Your rank as well as your student’s ranks will be evaluated according to World Moo Duk Kwan technical standards and other requirements.

We recognize that you will need some time to study and train in order to fulfill the rank requirements of the World Moo Duk Kwan and successfully obtain legitimate rank certification. The World Moo Duk Kwan representative assigned to assist you with technical standardization will create a training program and schedule suited to preparing you and your students for rank evaluation in a reasonable period of time. During this time period and beyond you and your students are required to maintain your registration status with the World Moo Duk Kwan in good standing.

Upon completion of your training program or when your technical standardization is deemed adequate, your World Moo Duk Kwan representative will recommend you and your students for rank evaluation. Please refer to the Gup testing and certification and Dan testing and certification sections for details.
