Poom to Dan Conversion

Extracted from STF official site:
"Coaches should remind their active 1st poom holders to convert their grade to 1st dan on reaching the age of 15.  Otherwise, they will be at a disadvantage as they will not be allowed to take their 2nd dan until one year after the conversion.  Furthermore, they may face difficulty when they serve their national service as the SAF only recognizes dan certification.

Coaches should also make it clear to all poom belt holders that conversion from poom to dan is automatic only if they continue training till they reach 15 years old.  If they stop training after obtaining their grade, they will have to re-join the club and train for at least six months to qualify for conversion.

The six-month training requirement is for the coaches to assess the suitability of their poom belt holders for the conversion.  If the coaches are not satisfied, they have the right to prescribe a longer training period for their trainees before recommending the conversion.

The conversion fee is $30 with effect from 1 April 2011."

New Ruling for 3rd Poom Grading

Extracted from STF official site:
"In response to numerous requests by club coaches, the STF Management Committee, in its meeting on 15 March 2011, has agreed to allow candidates for 2nd to 3rd poom to take their grading with their other club members.

They will no longer be required to take their promotion tests with the other candidates for dan grades.

The new ruling will take effect from April 2011 grading."
