Our belts run as follows:

* White Belt (not awarded with dobok, but instead requires a simple demonstration of TKD knowledge -- typically achieved within one or two classes)

Level I:
* Yellow
* Orange
* Green

Level II:
* Purple
* Light Blue
* Dark Blue

Level III:
* Red
* Brown
* Super Brown (brown w/white stripe)
* Bo Black (black with red)

Followed by black belt, and the black-belt progression.

Colored belts require three stripes for graduation eligibility (to the next belt): White Stripe (physical fitness demonstration), red stripe (graduation-form demonstration), and blue stripe (demonstration of breaking technique). In place of the physical fitness demonstration, children earn their white stripes by bringing in charts (each month) filled out by their parents that show they are performing admirably in their home lives.

Before I close, I would like to thank you for having posted this web site, and the extensive information on it, for all to use. You are providing a terrific service to the Tae Kwon Do community! Many thanks to you and your dojang.
