Here is what we recommend on setting up your training schedule.

Home training schedule example

Here is what we recommend on setting up your training schedule.

  1. Complete the white belt requirements before you move onto yellow belt curriculum and so on.
  2. On each belt curriculum on the manual or the video training course follow the order from top to bottom. In hand technique, do basic movements with proper stance prior to training your one step sparring or poomsae. Because of without knowing how to perform basic movements you can’t complete combinations of moves such as one step sparring or poomsae.
  3. On kicking part is the same, master all the basic kicks prior to training your combinations of kicks and footworks.
  4. You may focus on training hand and kicking technique every other day or little bit of everything minimum 10 times per session (each techniques) up to as much as you like however don’t make yourself too tired.
  5. Inside the same category you may switch the order of techniques around but do not attempt on advance move before you feel confident on basic move to prevent injuries. Inside this basic outline you can make your own training schedule depending on your physical conditions and the amount of time available, you can choose one or more activities to suit your needs.
  6. 20 days of training session is based on our minimum time limits for promotion. You may add or subtract days depending on your progression.

For advanced belt students.

Since all of our training course has same category, you can simply adapt the pattern of training using the example of White Belt training plan. Besides refer to the tips at the bottom on how to review all previous techniques that you have acquired.

Category Tips
Basic Movements You will need to review all previous basic punch, strike, thrust, blocks and stances now through practicing the Poomsae. If there is new basic movement that is not included in your previous poomsae you can set up training schedule like white belt training plan prior to learning your new poomsae.
One Step Sparring I have listed only one-one step sparring movement per belt course. As you progress you will need to perform always from white belt movements to your current belt level. If you want more, you can add your own movements on the curriculum.
Poomsae Let's say you are deputy black belt and if you still remember all poomsae that you have learned (Taegeuk 1 jang to 8 jang) reviewing all poomsae should only take you between 10 to 15 minutes max in a row. Try to complete all 8 poomsae without taking any break in between.
Basic Kick While challenging with your new kicks don't forget to make all previous kick sharper, faster and stronger. If you don't have enough time to review all previous kicks you can review and practice all your previous basic kicks while practicing combination kicks or and footworks. Spend more time on one of the basic kick that you feel that you need to make better than other kicks.
Combination Kick Hardest part of performing combination kicks is from incompletion of basic kicks. If you mastered all previous basic kicks you won't have much problem to review all previous combination kicks. When you have trouble to perform particular kick, I recommend you to go back to sharpening your basic kicks.
Footwork If you followed the plan we recommend, you will probably feel quite comfortable on all previous footworks, while taking your time to learn new moves review all previous foot works by step sparring, light or full contact sparring depending on your availability of training partner.
