Breaking requirements for promotion to 4th Dan Black Belt:

 

For promotion to 4th Dan Black Belt, testing candidates are required to perform several breaks consisting of a combination of both hand and foot, attacks and blocks, while using both the right and left sides.  The candidate will be required to perform both power breaks and technique breaks.  These breaks will be selected from those suggested to the test board by the testing candidate, and/or will be breaks specified by the test board. 

The student may choose any six (6) techniques as suggestions for their breaks at testing.  These choices must include one (1) power foot break, one (1) power hand break, one (1) technique foot break, one (1) technique hand break, and a three (3) target multiple aerial break.  The test board has the prerogative to choose alternative breaks for the testing candidate from among any of the breaking requirements for 3rd Dan Black Belt and below.  Therefore, it is likely that the testing candidate may perform more than just the six (6) suggested breaks – which may also include replacement breaks other than those suggested to the test board.

The breaking techniques chosen for suggestion to the test board by the testing candidate may include any technique learned during their Taekwon-Do career.  Additional, or alternative breaks requested BY the test board may also include any technique learned during their Taekwon-Do career.
