Beware of Fake Black Belt Certificate

Beware of Fake Black Belt Certificate

You waited 3 years for your black belt test and your master handed you black belt certificate.  Is it real?  In order to be certified black belt,  your master has to send the applications to KUKIWON.  Kukiwon is headquarter of TaeKwonDo, located in South Korea.  Many students walks in to my office claiming that they are black belt from World TaekwonDo Federation/ WTF.  I ask them if I can see the WTF Cards.  Most students doesn’t have them.  Chances are they are not certified by Korea.  They might be black belt, but according to World TaekwonDo Federation nor KUKIWON, head of Taekwondo headquarter, they don’t exist.  So what is difference between real black belt certificate and why do we care if certificate is real or not?  Question is do you want to be recognized by world or just in your school?    Real Certified Black belt can walk into school and say I am black belt from Kukiwon and WTF, he/she will be accepted as black belt.  Also 4th Dan black belt from Kukiwon certified can only be consider Master and certified as Instructor.  So why not get the real certificate when you already deserved it? click here for more image of ; Fake kukiwon certificate
