Theory for your first grading typically consists of 3 questions relating to the training that you have done so far.
THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS ARE:-
What are the tenents of Tae Kwon-Do?
What does the colour white signify?
What part of the fist do you punch with and what is it in Korean?
How long and wide is a walking stance or sitting stance, and what is it called in Korean?
What is the Korean for middle section?
What does Tae Kwon-Do literally mean?
What is the Korean for outer forearm?
Remember that these are just examples of questions you might be asked at a grading, a student
should have a good knowledge of their theory before going to grade.
