All are welcome to attend this special event. CTC will have eleven candidates testing for First and Second Dan ranks in both Taekwondo and Gumdo. The promotion typically lasts about three hours, and will be immediately followed by a candle ceremony involving all students in attendance. Prior to the promotion, it's customary to write congratulatory cards for the testing students. There is a list of candidates, along with a card collection box, at the front desk.
