Requirements

Welcome Ironbear Martial Arts student requirements area, this is where you will begin your journey of advancement. You can begin here by reading all links and information on our website and selecting the appropriate rank page located in the side-bar on the right side of most of our pages.  Each time you promote you should download and print the next rank requirements.  Thank you for checking out Ironbear Martial Arts.

We have included the Korean terminology with the syllabuses, however the Korean terms are not required to test. All the listed techniques are required at testing.

Parents and students please print both the Student Picture Handbooks and the Rank Requirements under each belt rank, and please also view the videos for each belt rank.

Class fees are due the 1st Wednesday of each month and there is a test fee for each promotion of $25 up to Red Belt.

There are many different skill levels of Martial Arts. The skill levels of each person are signified by the belt color they wear. Every student will start off with the 10th Gup White Belt and it is up to them how far they go.

For our students under the age of 12 the student completes all class requirements thru Red Belt Black Stripe then a Junior Black Belt Test will occur and if passed the student will receive their Junior Black Belt or Poomse Belt if they show good positive social skills and good character development. Once the Junior Black Belt Student reaches 15 years old the student will be eligible for an Adult Black Belt. However, the student will be required to meet very high class room, school, social and family standards.  They may be required to demonstrate additional skills and requirements. We have a section on our website known as Bonus Material, which is designed to give our students additional information to aid them in there journey with our school. This material is not required and should only be reviewed after learning the basics of all belt requirements.

To see the skills required for each level select the appropriate belt link below.
