BELTS AND MEANINGS

 

 

 

The Belt Colours and their meanings

 

White Signifies innocence, as that of the beginning student who has no previous knowledge of Tae Kwon-Do.

 

Yellow Signifies earth, from which a plant sprouts root as the Tae Kwon-Do foundation is being laid.

 

Green Signifies the plant's growth, as Tae Kwon-Do skills begin to develop.

 

Blue Signifies heaven, toward which the plant matures into a towering tree as training in Tae Kwon-Do progresses.

 

Red Signifies danger, cautioning the student to exercise control and warning the opponent to stay away.

 

Black Opposite to white, therefore signifying maturity and proficiency in Tae Kwon-Do. Also indicates the wearer's imperviousness to darkness and fear. There a 9 belts before blackbelt in taekwondo and you can attend a maximum of 3 gradings every year. On certain occasions if you show a lot of progress you will be double-graded. We don’t expect most people to grade 3 times a year, except at the lower levels, or if people practice alot at home aswell as in the dojang. Most people grade a couple of times a Year in order to move up the syllabus. Sparring is a prominent part of the sport side of taekwondo and most people really enjoy it!
