[ Etc ] Kukkiwon to Elevate the Status of Taekwondo 9th Dan Award Ceremony Ceremonial Uniform Will Be Presented

Kukkiwon is going to introduce the first ceremonial uniform designed to elevate the status of the 9th Dan Award Ceremony.

 

 

The newly designed ceremonial uniform will be presented at the 2nd 9th Dan Award Ceremony 2021scheduled to be held at 11AM on Wednesday, October 20 at Kukkiwon Central Gymnasium.

 

 

Jenifer Mok, a globally renowned Hanbok designer, developed three different designs for Kukkiwon President, Kukkiwon Vice President (President of World Taekwondo Academy), and 9th Dan awardees. The design utilized the traditional colors (Obangjeongsaek, Obanggansaek) that embody the meaning and harmony of Yin and Yang, Korea???s indigenous philosophy.

 

 

Also, the design features Taegeuk pictograms and Kukkiwon CI based on Korean traditional patterns and Taekwondo movement patterns.

 

 

It was back in 2009 that Kukkiwon embarked on various studies and programs to develop ceremonial uniforms, Taekwondo uniforms, and promotion test rituals. But the efforts were not materialized. Starting from the new ceremonial uniform, Kkukkiwon will consider gradually adopting other new items.

 

In addition, Kukkiwon revised some parts of the procedure of 8th and 9th Dan promotion tests.

 

 

The preliminary training used to be carried out on the day of the promotion test. However, new applicants for 8th and 9th Dan promotion tests are required to attend a 2-day training course for 10 hours including six hours of Poomsae (performance test), two hours of self-defense (performance test), and the philosophy of martial arts (theory).

 

 

Applicants of the 3rd 9th Dan Promotion Test 2021 scheduled for October 19 (Tues) to October 20 (Wed) will be subject to the revised procedure. And Kukkwion will extend the application to 8th Dan applicants from the next year.

 

 

Kukkiwon organized a TF to improve the procedure of Taekwondo 8th and 9th Dan Promotion Tests last May. The TF has done hard works not only on the design and adoption of the ceremonial uniform but also on strengthening the training of promotion test applicants and changes in Dan award ceremony to improve the level of Taekwondo promotion test and devise concrete measures.
