Strive For Excellence

Taekwondo belt system is represented by the different colored belts practitioners wear. The Taekwondo rank varies by school but generally starts with a white belt that represents a beginner student and typically, moves through various colored belts all the way up to black belt.

The concept of the Taekwondo belt system stems from the idea that the color white represents purity or birth while the color black represents maturity and mastery. As students progresses through the Taekwondo, the belts get darker until obtaining a black belt that represents maturity and a collection of all the knowledge gained throughout the student’s journey.

However, learning or mastery does not end with a black belt; on the contrary, the black belt is when a student further refines techniques, gains a deeper understanding of Taekwondo philosophy, shares the knowledge obtained through years of training with others by teaching and strives to reach for higher mental, physical, and spiritual development.
