Giorgio’s Taekwon-Do System of Ranking

Mr. Giorgio has been training ITF Taekwon-Do for 27 years. At Giorgio’s, it is our mission to give all students a solid foundation in ITF Taekwon-Do (International Taekwon-Do Federation).
The core principles of Taekwon-Do include: Courtesy, Integrity, Self-Control, Perseverance, and Indomitable Spirit and it is these principles that guide our teaching. As students progress in Taekwon-Do, they continually learn new fundamental techniques. The method used to practice these fundamental techniques is the Taekwon-Do “pattern”.
A Taekwon-Do pattern is a choreographed sequence of fundamental movements. General Choi, the founder of Taekwon-Do, developed twenty-four patterns. The patterns are introduced gradually as each student progresses. They must demonstrate a certain mastery of their pattern before they can advance in rank. Practicing patterns will improve a child’s technique, ability to focus, and sense of balance. Each rank achieved enhances the student’s self-esteem and personal growth! It takes the average student approximately 7 years to attain the level of black belt.
Our achievement system is based on the traditional, time-tested, internationally recognized tenets of ITF Taekwon-Do.  ITF TKD is recognized all over the world, so students’ important achievements and ranks are recognized all over the world. Taekwon-Do is an enriching experience that lasts a lifetime! Please let us know if you have any questions about our system.
