Portishead Taekwon-Do
What else ?
In TaeKwon-Do there are six colours of belt. Gradings are carried out up to 4 times a year, the students progress is marked by the achievement of a new belt. Between each full coloured belt the student first achieves a stripe on their belt of the next colour. 1. White: Signifies innocence, as that of the beginning student who has no previous knowledge of TaeKwon-Do. 2. Yellow: Signifies earth, from which a plant sprouts and takes root as the TaeKwon-Do foundation is being laid. 3. Green: Signifies the plants growth as the TaeKwon-Do skills begin to develop 4. Blue: Signifies the heaven towards which the plant grows as training in TaeKwon-Do progresses. 5. Red: Signifies danger, cautioning the student to exercise control and warning the opponent to stay away. 6. Black: Opposite to white, therefore signifying maturity and proficiency in TaeKwon-Do. Also indicates the wearer’s imperviousness to darkness and fear. Korean Terms Applicable to White Belt (10th Kup and 9th Kup) I have included some Korean terms to help you in your initial training. You will also be provided with a PUMA training handbook shortly after you join as a student. You will hear these terms used in the Dojang (Training Hall !) and there is a theory element in each grading.
