About 10,000 participants were promoted in the quarterly centralized grading held on 6 and 7 October 2007 at Toa Payoh Sports Hall. Many thousands more will be upgraded through the supplementary grading conducted at various centres by examiners assigned by the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF).
The grading is like a family carnival. Children participating in the grading are supported by their parents and grandparents. There were also plenty of photograph-taking opportunities for the family album.
One interesting fact of the grading is the increase in the number of families taking the test. This is not only good for the sport but also the families.
