Higher belts have to learn multiple Taekwondo forms or poomse. For the initial black belt test, you must know the basic WTF Taekwondo forms 1 through 8 and be ready to demonstrate them in different orders (i.e. your Taekwondo instructor might ask you to demonstrate Taekwondo forms 8, 5, 1, 6 and 3 – in that order). Studying these free written & video WTF form instructions will help you to pass your black test.
FYI – Different Taekwondo schools may teach slight variations to each of the WTF Taekwondo forms. In order to pass your belt tests, you should know your school’s required format. However, if you compete in outside tournaments (those not organized by your Taekwondo school), you need to perform the official WTF poomsae/forms if you want to win.
