I was just wondering a couple of things. Firstly what dan do you have to be to promote your own students in a kukki school? Im sure I heard someone say 4th dan but I wasnt sure. Also, people have commented here that my GM should give me a kukki cert becasue what I do is basically kukki tkd. If my GM sent away to korea and got me a kukki cert knowing full well that I dont know any of the taegeks, is this unethical? I mean surely the korean man who rubber stamps my application would assume that I would know the kukki forms, if he was aware that I dont know any taegeks would he still be happy to stamp it? Are there any guidelines on what I should know or is that just left to the GM's discretion? The system just seems pretty loose to me if that is the case, or is knowing the palgwes enough because they were the original kukki forms? Im just a little confused as it seems wrong that my GM could send away and get me a cert and no one would question that I dont actually know the material. Wouldnt the first pre-requisite for obtaining a 1st dan cert through the kukki be that the student knows the poomsae? Im not trying to be a smart ****, I am just a bit confused about how this all works. It wasnt until I mentioned to a kukki friend of mine last night that some of you have suggested I get my GM to get me a kukki cert and he laughed and said "you dont know the stuff, so how could he get you a cert?". Again, Im not trying to start an argument, I am genuinely confused on all this.
