GROW A BLACK BELT!
We are frequently inspired by the actions of those we admire. Because we admire and respect our heroes, we attempt to follow in their footsteps. Other people are inspired to challenge themselves. Either way, we are inspired to attempt new challenges, and this is the beginning of the road to achievement.
WHAT DOES YOUR
BELT COLOR MEAN?
WHITE- Signifies innocence, as that of a beginning student who has no previous knowledge of TKD. YELLOW- Signifies the earth from which a plant sprouts and takes root as the TKD foundation is being laid. GREEN- Signifies the plant’s growth as the TKD skills begin to develop. BLUE- Signifies the sky or the heaven, towards which the plant matures into a towering tree as training in TKD progresses. RED- Signifies danger, cautioning the student to exercise control and warning the opponent to stay away. BLACK- Opposite of white, therefore, signifying the maturity and proficiency in TKD. It also indicates the wearer’s resistance to darkness and fear.
