For affiliated and qualified members:
I can support your school Dan promotion of Taekwondo by the National Taekwondo Society. When I mention the National Taekwondo Society can support your Dan promotion I mean by: World Taekwondo Changmookwan Federation (Korea), the US Taekwondo Hanmookwan Assn (United States) and by the Kukkiwon (Korea). Both services are separated from each other. I can recommend your test after you past it satisfactory with the World Taekwondo Changmookwan Federation, the US Taekwondo Hanmookwan Assn and with the Kukkiwon. There is not skip for the physical test and theory test performance.
For the World Taekwondo Changmookwan Federation there is not restriction of Nationality for the recommendation but probably you will be refer to a member in your country for better assistance. The World Taekwondo Changmookwan Federation have a very strict membership acceptance and interview requirements; and follow the Kukkiwon rules. The Changmookwan will accept your last Kukkiwon certification and only Kukkiwon, if you don't have a valid Kukkiwon certification you need to start from your 1st Dan or Kyu rank test.

You do not have to be an official NTS Master or Instructor member to apply for all Kukkiwon certification, World Taekwondo Changmookwan Federation or by the US Taekwondo Hanmookwan Assn.
How Kukkiwon Certification works?
To obtain Kukkiwon certification you need to be recommended by a qualified Kukkiwon certified Master who is the same nationality as the candidate or resides in the same country as the candidate, having done so for more than 6 months. You wil not be able to go to another country for the purpose of being tested and an foreign examiner may not recommend a person for Kukkiwon qualification.
The NTS always recognize your current certificate from Kukkiwon.
There will be no special case in anyways on Kukkiwon certification as the "Skip" Dan or the "Jump" Dan.
We send all applications to Kukkiwon on the last day of every month, all fees for Kukkiwon test are non-refundables and certification it is only at discretion of the Kukkiwon to approve it or denied it; we assist with the proper test and examination but the Kukkiwon reserve all rights to approve it or denied it.
It will takes about 4 to 6 weeks depends on how fast ship it back from Kukkiwon in Korea, in some cases up to (3) months; again once Kukkiwon approve it.
