We are fairly new to TKD (only started a few months ago) and we have found that the price of promotion testing seems a bit strange. Colored belts arent too bad, it starts at $30 for yellow and increases $5 per belt til you get to black ($30=yellow,$35=orange,$40=green,$45=blue,$50=purple,$55=brown,$60=red) but testing for black is $800 and it goes up(like double) for each dan testing. The question we have is this. Is it customary at all or most TKD schools that testing for black belt to be so expensive? We really like our school and instructor, and we know its a long time before we will be testing for black belt being we were just promoted to orange but we were curious if this is the standard in all or most schools? Oh I thought we should add that our instructor told us that the price of testing for black belt includes a new (diffrent type) uniform, certificate from the WTF, A black belt with our name on it and a ID card with our picture. we figure that the cost of all of that is only a few hundred at the most? What do you think?
