GTUK 'Rainbow' Taekwon-Do grading syllabus (for 6 to 9 years)

The Rainbow syllabus encourages young children to become strong Taekwon-Do students in preparation for entering the full traditional syllabus (10 year olds to adult). This has now been proven and well-established. Safety gear must be introduced at an early stage for children of this age group (especially helmet).
'Rainbow' students continue to take 3 monthly grading tests but at a less technical level, concentrating on the student's development of coordination and concentration, together with the knowledge of basic Taekwon-Do techniques and traditional Taekwon-Do patterns.

Traditional Taekwon-Do grading syllabus (age 10 years to adult)

The traditional Taekwon-Do syllabus is taught to all students aged 10 years and above with just a few variations for the younger students.  
Students between the ages of 10 to 11 years (known as "Peewee's") learn the full traditional syllabus with the exception of "Set Sparring" and "Destruction" (power breaking techniques).  
12 to 16 years old (juniors) learn the full syllabus excluding "Destruction" (which is only taught to adults).
Adult students (17 years and above) learn the full GTUK traditional Taekwon-Do syllabus. The syllabus contains all aspects of traditional Taekwon-Do including traditional patterns, set sparring, self-defence techniques, semi-contact sparring (with safety equipment) and destruction (power breaking techniques).
Grading tests are taken every 3 months up to blue belt and then every 6 months as the standards and techniques become more demanding and technical.
