Belt Ranking System

As you train, you will progress through various Taekwondo ranks. The lower ranks (called Kub in Korean) are indicated by colored belts. The higher black belt ranks (called Dan in Korean, or Degree in English) follow the Kub ranks. Each Kub rank is associated with a belt color. For each belt color, there is also a high Kub rank. Belts for the high Kub ranks are striped in color of the belt of the next rank. New students have no belt at all until they learn basic introductory material, and have no Kub rank. White belt students also do not have a Kub rank.

Kub Ranks

The following lists the Kub ranks and Deputy Black Belt rank, and the typical time required to advance to the next rank. Advancement is accomplished by competently demonstrating the requirements of each rank in public exams.

After working through the Kub ranks, students become eligible to advance to the lowest Dan rank, Deputy Black Belt (Bo Dan in Korean). The requirements for advancement to Deputy Black Belt are more rigorous than the requirements for advancing to even the highest Kub rank.

Stripe System

Whenever the instructor feels that you understand and can competently demonstrate the particular requirement, you can earn a tip on your belt. After the first stripe is earned, the instructor will award another stripe when the next of the requirement belt is mastered. After all the requirements for advancing to the next rank are demonstrated, testing information will be given to the student.

White Stripe is for Poomse
Yellow Stripe is for Self-Defense
Green Stripe is for Sparring
Blue Stripe is for Breaking

Bowing to the flags

When you enter and leave the Dojang, bow to the flags. Only martial art shoes may be worn in the Dojang. However, students are encouraged to practice without shoes. If you do decide to wear martial art shoes those shoes should not be worn anywhere other than the Dojang.

Class Times

Class time is especially respected. If you remain in the Dojang during a class, but are not participating, stay quietly in the back of the room. Do not interrupt a class. You can use the time to stretch or study the curriculum printed on the back of your attendance card.
