ill just add a small bit about all these lovely silk coloured dokok,s we keep seeing, you will also find the simple black and white dobok as shown in any true tae kwon-do school has meaning. look up the korean royal family colours , or just carry on being the swish silky big fish in your small shallow pond... sorry but i love tae kwon-do and to see some of the comments just well what can i say.....

About the fancy "silk" doboks you criticise.

Just like every in life, we must change with the times.

Please explain how having "silk doboks" negatively affect TKD training, besides being more comfortable and more durable?

HAHAHA! YOU ARE SO STUBBORN, UKTA
You have no idea of how varied and different each Master Instructor has his syllabus. Some Dojangs have only the basic colours: White-Yellow-Blue-Red-Black.

Some have all these "other" colours added in sush as "green", "purple", "brown" and i'v even seen an ORANGE belt!!

It is arrogant and quite naiive to say that there is only "one correct syllabus". Of course, General Choi and Grand Master Rhee had the "Original" syllabus, but mate, get up to date and welcome to the 21st Century!! And you do not know how an ITF member will react to this. Neither do i, coz we are all unique human beings, but he/she sure wont react "shocked" like you did, Mr. UKTA, coz an ITF master is mature and humble, and KNOWS that the TKD passed down by general choi & grand master rhee has been changed a bit by later masters, to suit their own unique methods of training and that they are quite accepting of that coz you will find that it is the actual ITF members who are the ones who train their students in their own unique ways they learnt in their own experience.

The statement that we MUST follow the original TKD syllabus is a very invalid one. Dont u all agree?

Besides, the Belt system is not the basis of Tae Kwon Do. The Belt System was made simply to make it easier to learn Tae Kwon Do...hmm...isnt it a great and convenient system to have coloured belts to say what level ur in, so u can learn effectively AT YOUR OWN LEVEL?

And hedkikr, wen u said,

"What's your hurry? You'll be ready when you're ready. By next testing, you'll be ready for certain. Don't chase belts, chase proficiency."

I completely agree with you. You cant "lie" at a Tae Kwon Do Grading. The amount of practice u put in will reflect on how u perform.
