THEORY

TYPICAL THEORY FOR 5TH KUPS

 

Theory for your 5th Kup grading typically consists of 3 more questions relating to the training that you have done so far

 

THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS ARE:-

 

What is the meaning of your pattern and how many movements does it have?

What is the korean for hooking block and what part of the hand do your use?

What is the difference between 3 step and 2 step sparing?

Name 5 different stances and relate them to a pattern?

Name 5 different kicks and what part of the foot they use?

In your pattern you do a front elbow strike, what is the opposite hand doing?

What is the purpose of the first movement from your pattern?

Who are the founder members of the UK TKD?

Name 3 different parts of the hand and relate them to strikes or punches.

 

Remember that these are just examples of questions you might be asked at a grading, a student should have a good knowledge of their theory before going to grade.

JUNIOR THEORY QUESTIONS

 

From green belt level upwards the theory questions are still easier, relating to their age and ability, but  there is less distinction in the theory asked between an adult and a junior.
