Advancing through the belts is done by a system of gradings. Gradings are typically held in 3 month cycles at regional training centres across the UK. Grading systems will typically consist of line work, patterns, theory, and sparring. Students can typically advance through the belts at a rate of 1 Kup every 3 months.


BTCB uses the following system of Belt Gradings:

* 10th Kup - White belt (white signifies innocence, as a student with no previous knowledge of Taekwondo)
* 9th Kup - White belt with yellow tag
* 8th Kup - Yellow belt (yellow signifies earth, from which the metaphorical plant sprouts forth and takes root as the foundations of Taekwondo are laid)
* 7th Kup - Yellow belt with green tag
* 6th Kup - Green belt (green signifies the plant's growth as skills are developed)
* 5th Kup - Green belt with blue tag
* 4th Kup - Blue belt (blue signifies heaven, towards which the plant is growing as training progresses)
* 3rd Kup - Blue belt with red tag
* 2nd Kup - Red belt (red signifies danger, cautioning the student to exercise control and warning opponents)
* 1st Kup - Red belt with black tag
* 1st Dan - Black belt (black is opposite to white and signifies maturity and proficiency in taekwondo)

BTCB (WTF Style) uses the Hyung#Poomsae style of teaching Taekwondo.
