    List of Kukkiwon Master Dans? And Certification process

    Is there a list I can consult somehwre that has the official list of high dans certified by Kukkiwon? If someone claims a high master dan, how do I confirm that claim myself, and find out who was at the certifying exam?

    I have another question too. When someone is certified at that high a level after all of their teachers have passed away, who is it that conducts the exams and certifies them?

    Dude you've got a lot to learn about the Kukkiwon. Are you in the US?

    It seems new to Taekwondo as well (spelling in style field).

    You might check:
    http://www.koreataekwondo.org
    if you read korean that is.

    Otherwise:
    http://www.kukkiwon.or.kr/english/index.jsp

    There's a link on the bottom right that says 'Check for Poom/Dan', that's what you're looking for.

    Fair warning: on that second link you have to type in the name EXACTLY as written on the certificate. Even if you give my first and last name, nationality, and birth date, I won't show up. You have to type in my full middle name, since that's how it is on the certificate.

    I'm glad you said it.

    That search engine pretty much sucks. What I'm looking for is a list of the highest ranking masters, from 9th dan to 6th dan. Does such a list exist? It seems it should. Would be nice to know who's who. Also, I'm still curious how someone with no master can still test for highers dans. If they operate their own school, who do they go to for certification?

    Well usually there's a state group you can go to that coordinates the efforts for promotions and rank verifications. Some of them really suck like CA. But if you find your states group they should be able to answer your inquiries.

    Such a list would comprise about 40,000 pages. Every small town in my area has an 8th dan TKD master teaching out of a 12 by 24 ft room, they are everywhere.
