#121061 - 06/22/04 03:08 AM Re: Belt Colours PLZ I NEED HELP!

Sorry to chime in so late. In my TKD organization we have a "Cho Dan Bo" ranking between the 1st Gup/kyu and 1st/cho Dan. This belt is black and is the end of the colored belt curriculum. It is listed as the last grading on the students grading card. 1st Dans are issue with a dan certificate. This rank learn the WTF form "Koryo" and 1st Dans learn "kum gang". I know this is different to the standard WTF format but I have seen that it works well and the students have a year to extra to learn to 1st Dan. (It isn't for extra money!!!) We have 9 Gup/kyu ranks and then Cho Dan Bo. I have trained in several school prior to starting with this school in 94 due to a group of great and friendly instructors. No school had the same belt colors, but all had 9 or 10 Gup/kyu ranks. I hope this sheds a little light on the plain black belt.

That sounds a lot like Recremended Black. Which basically is your 1st kup that is right before 1st Dan.

I have seen some schools do Koreo for that belt and Kum Gon (spelling?) for the 1st dan.

I have word that the time tables have shifted also for time between black belts. I believe it starts off as 1 year between 1st and 2nd instead of 2 now.

Anyone doubts the "martial art" part of Taekwondo just has to look at WTF forms. My god they are boring [IMG][/IMG] (then compare to ITC)
