KUKKIWON  Special  Promotion Test

Guideline for in the USA 





 I hope this letter finds you in good health. I take this opportunity to appreciate your devotion to the promotion and development of KUKKIWON Taekwondo in the USA. It is my great pleasure to inform you that the KUKKIWON will organize a Special (Dan) Promotion Test in the USA. The main purpose of this Special Promotion Test is to provide a venue for Taekwondo practitioners who have not promoted through the KUKKIWON Dan process for various reasons, an opportunity to achieve KUKKIWON certification. Most importantly, this examination will allow us to further promote thespirit of Taekwondo through KUKKIWON certified Taekwondo Masters in the USA. Please cooperate on this matter, and I look forward to the KUKKIWON working closely with each of you to make this promotion test a great success for all of you.
