Competitions & Gradings

At Lewes Tae Kwon Do, you will be encouraged to achieve your full potential and take gradings up to and beyond black belt. However, we are happy for people to come and train and choose to do so for health, fitness, self defense or whatever they wish to improve. Furthermore, if you want more from your training, you will also have the opportunity to attend local, national and international competitions throughout the year, in patterns, sparring and team events.You will find grading and competition results on the “Latest News” page


All colour belt gradings are taken by Grandmaster David Oliver 9th Dan (The chairman of the TAGB) where you will perform the set TAGB syllabus, so you are guarenteed quality and a worthwhile achievement right from the start.

Colour belt gradings are done every 3 months up to Blue Belt (4th Kup) and every 6 month up to Black Tag (1st Kup). Gradings cost £26 which includes your new belt.

Ask your instructor for full syllabus listings and grading sheets.

Black Belt gradings are held at The TAGB Academy in Bristol and run in April and October. These are taken by the full TAGB commitee. The minimum training time for an attempt at Black Belt is 3 and 1/2 years.

If you have any questions regarding gradings, please do not hesitate to contact Lewes Tae Kwon Do!
