Significance of Belt Colors

There are six belts: white, yellow, green, blue, red and black. White is given to beginners and black is given to students who have progressed through the grades and have a solid foundation for learning the techniques of Tae Kwon-Do.

The definitions of the belts are as follows:
  • White Belt

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

  • Yellow Belt

    Signifies the earth from which a plant sprouts and takes root as the foundation of Tae Kwon-Do is being laid.

  • Green Belt

    Signifies the plant’s growth as Tae Kwon-Do skills begin to develop.

  • Blue Belt

    Signifies the Heaven towards which the plant matures into a towering tree as training in Tae Kwon-Do progresses.

  • Red Belt

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

  • Black Belt

    Opposite of white, therefore signifying the maturity and proficiency in Tae Kwon-Do, also indicates the wearer’s imperviousness to darkness and fear.
