Obtaining Judging Certifications


The requirements to certify or re-certify for any level of judging chevron are the same.

  1. Read the rules.
  2. Receive practical training from their instructor.
  3. Students must take and pass, a score of 90% or better, an online test for the appropriate judging certification level.
  4. Have your instructor’s signature verifying that the student has the curriculum knowledge required for that judging level.
  5. Attend and participate in a judging clinic held by a RTTL or the person designated to fill that role. Please, bring a copy of the result sheet from the online test with your instructor’s signature which verifies your curriculum knowledge.

At the completion of the clinic, the RTTL will forward all passing scores via mail, fax or email to the tournament department at International Headquarters. At that time, the student may order, through their instructor, the appropriate chevron. The RTTL will not be responsible for collecting money or ordering chevrons for judges. All judging chevron clinics are at no cost to the student.

The cost of a level 1 chevron is $8.00. The cost of a level 2 chevron is $7.00. The cost of a level 3 chevron is $5.00. Chevrons of any level for extra uniforms can be purchased for $4.00 each.  *All costs subject to change.

Notes:

  • Attending black belt meeting the morning of a tournament will not fulfill the judging clinic attendance requirement for certification or recertification.
  • No black belt or Senior should ask or imply that a RTTL should certify or recertify a judge for any level without that person actually attending a seminar and taking the test regardless of rank or experience.
  • Any student who, with their instructor’s permission, desires to attend a regional judging certification clinic for practical application of rules is permitted to attend.

Judging Certification Levels


The ATA takes great pride in the training of black belts to be judges at regional, national, and world tournaments. Black belts are trained over a period of time to be qualified as a Level 1 Corner Judge, a Level 2 Center Judge, or a Level 3 Chief Judge. Each competition ring (except ATA Tiger rings) will have 3 qualified black belts to judge the competitors. All certifications are valid for one year. This requirement is mandatory for all ranks 1st through 9th Degree Black Belt.
