International Taekwon-Do Federation added 8 new photos.The ITA Winter Black Belt Test took place on Sunday Dec 3rd 2016 in Ennis, Co. Clare. The ITA structure their black belt gradings to be a centralised exam twice per year for all candidates in the organisation seeking promotion to 1st degree and above. The minimum age for 1st degree in the association is 13 years old and all candidates must first pass a preliminary black belt test in their own region before qualifying for the centralised national black belt test. The ITA also structure the black belt test with 2 grading panels working simultaneously and with separate examiners for power test, special technique and for theory. Due to Ireland being a relatively small country geographically (you can drive from one side to the other in 2 hours or less) it means that we can work quite easily with all regions across the country bringing benefit to all events such as black belt tests, seminars and championships. It also helps to maintain a good standard by ensuring no club is left working on their own. The implementation of higher standards at the regional preliminary tests in the last few gradings has led to a higher pass rate at the centralised exam due to the level of student coming to the exam being more prepared than before. For the second central black belt test in a row the pass rate was 100% with all 54 candidates being promoted. It is worth noting that several candidates from each region did not pass the regional preliminary exam to qualify for the central test. The following is the list of examiners and promoted candidates:Examiners:Panel1 Master Tim Forde VIIMaster Mark Buckley VIIMaster Adrian O'Mahoney VIICarl Smullen VAnne Marie Kinsella VIPanel 2 Master Pat Barry VIIMaster Stephen Cooley VIINiall Jones VIAdrian Byrne VIBrian Coughlan VITheory Master Kenneth Wheatley VIIIStephen Ryan VIPower/Special Technique Master Patrick O'Rourke VIIDerek Hanlon IVGrading Narrators John Moriarty IIIJack Sheehan III ...
