After years of training, you have reached the goal of being a TaeKwondo International Black Belt. You should feel that you have arrived…yet you have only begun. You can now begin to develop the deeper understanding of the art that comes with advanced rank and increased experience.

There are two distinct Black Belt modes: TRAINING and TEACHING. In the training mode, you are attending class, working out individually, studying student manual, testing for rank, competing in tournaments, and performing at demonstrations.

Black Belts who choose to accept the responsibility and who earn Trainee or Instructor Certification also have a teaching mode.

Back Belt is The Opposite of White, signifying the maturity and proficiency of mastering the Basics of TaeKwondo.
