Congratulations on Having Achieved the Height of Our Black Belt Program! 

Now is the time to stand with all of the students at this level to perform your Taekwondo or Hapkido requirements in order to get ready for your First Degree of Black Belt Test.  Please Check the Student Quick Start Guide Below:

Bo Staff

We have a standard bo staff for advanced level students.  The bo staff must be kept neat and clean. The bo staff is required for the classes and the events such as all your level classes, belt advancement testings, and black belt test.

Safety Rules for Bo Staff

  1. The mindset is that a bo staff is inherently dangerous and MUST always be handled with care.

  2. MUST treat a Bo staff with respect and strongly discouraged from playing or toying with a Bo staff, a common cause of accidents.

  3. ALWAYS keep a Bo staff pointed in a safe direction.

  4. ALWAYS keep a Bo staff carefully and safely stored until ready to practice.

  5. MUST carry a Bo staff by proper instructions.

Black Belt Dan (degree) Test

Black Belt testing is a separate event from the Belt Advancement Test.  The test will be a day-long exam (usually takes 3~4 hours) that will test candidates mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Make sure to check with your Master or teaching staff members for the schedule so that you can prepare in advance.​  Again, LeeHan teaching staff members will announce the exact date and the time, as well as the testing schedule, several weeks before the exam date to allow enough time for you to plan for the test.  If there are any questions, be sure to ask LeeHan teaching staff members for more details.  Please inform Master Lee at registration of any health considerations (i.e. Asthma, Diabetes, etc.) of which the Master and/or teaching staff members will need to be aware of during the test. 

The following are the procedures required to participate in the Black Belt exam:

  • Complete LeeHan Black Belt Exam Request Form.

  • Complete Kukkiwon or Hapkido Black Belt Certification Request Form.

  • Submit with 1 passport picture and a proof of your nationality.

Make sure to bring the following items with you to the test: 

  • Full Uniform (T-shirts will not be accepted as part of the uniform)

  • Deputy Belt

  • Martial Arts Shoes (if you normally wear them for class)

  • Athletic shoes and socks (for the running portion of the endurance test)

  • Snacks and beverages (if you want)



Master and/or Teaching staff members will be able to assist you in preparing for the Written Test. 

You may take notes during class, but you will not be allowed to use them during the test.
