All coloured belt students that are 8th kup (yellow belt) or above need sparring gear.
Sparring is part of the grading for 6th kup (green belt) so thus we recommend students start sparring at yellow belt so they can get practice in.
Guidance on equipment is available here
We strongly recommend equipment is purchased from Academy Sports in Derby. They are located on Ashbourne Road. Academy Sports will be able to advise the correct size and type of equipment for ITF style Taekwon-Do.
There are four coloured belt grading dates scheduled for 2019. They are;
Sunday 17th Match

Your instructors will confirm if you are read to grade, but dates are published here so students have an idea of the dates they should be aiming towards.
Note regular attendance is essential if you want to progress through the grades.
