Our Junior Tae Kwon-Do  training sees the introduction of a more

adult approach to training which closesly resembles the Adult Curriculum, and as

such the belt grading system is the same. Progressing through the syllabus is by

a hierarchal coloured belt system. There are six belt colours, ranking from the

lowest , white then through yellow , green , blue , red to the coveted black belt.

Each colour with exception of black, has two levels of grade, making ten in total.


Saltire's junior curriculum, white belt to black belt is based on training a minimum

of 2 nights a week (some members train once weekly which means it takes longer

to progress) and covers all aspects of TKD, fundamental movement, fitness, reflex,

speed and Tae Kwon-do philosophy.


When students find a particular skill challenging, they must show perseverance in

order to overcome that hurdle.  Developing this quality will give your child high

self-esteem and this is the key factor in all our martial arts programmes. 

There are many children’s’ martial arts that will happily give belt promotions to appease and retain students.  We do not follow this philosophy as it does not build self-esteem and it will only serve in the child developing a false sense of security concerning their ability to defend themselves.
