Ahn’s Taekwondo Belt Program
Ahn’s Taekwondo provides training in 11 belts, or goals, to be met in progressing from White to Black belt. In Taekwondo, belts are goals that are set for the students to meet on their path to personal improvement. The goals are more easily met for the first belts then become increasingly difficult as students progress through the belt levels.
The eleven colored belts to be met in progressing from the White to the Black Belt signify the student’s rank level. They are earned by performing a certain level of required skills and showing personal improvement during the Rank Promotion Tests. Low to mid belt testing requirements include kicking, punching and stances, along with basic motions, forms and breaking. High belt testing requirements also include self-defense, weapons and sparring.
Rank Promotion Tests are offered every two months for low to mid belt levels and every four months for higher belt levels. It takes an average student who attends class regularly approximately three to three and a half years to achieve the rank of 1st Degree Black Belt.
