Students of American Jidokwan have the opportunity to earn rank in both Taekwondo and Tang Soo Do, based on which curriculum they follow (see more here). For students who earn Taekwondo Dan rank, we have offer several different certifications in addition to recognition through our organization.
The American Jidokwan Association is an official branch of the World Taekwondo Jidokwan Federation. When students receive their Taekwondo Dan in American Jidokwan, they also receive certification from the World Headquarters in Korea!
The American Jidokwan Association is also registered with USA Taekwondo (Club #8022), the National Governing Body for Taekwondo in the United States. As a registered club, we can also offer Dan certification through USAT. However, these certifications are optional and not automatically given.
