How do Taekwondo Belts Work?

Taekwondo Black-Belt

Taekwondo is a traditional martial art that has a number of similarities to karate, but has more of an emphasis on kicks. It is a Korean art, but it uses a belt system similar to that of Judo and Karate. The belt colors vary between branches, but will start with the white belt (for beginners) and work up to the black belt (for advanced practitioners), with ‘degrees’ being awarded for people who continue to train after black belt.
