You still haven't defined what a Black Belt is in Tae Kwon Do. What is a "Black Belt"?Quote:
Well, at the kukkiwan a blackbelt in taekwondo is just someone who scores a 60 out of a 100 on the test that is divided into four sections. (special technique, forms, breaking, and, sparring if you want more details on a blackbelt at the kukkiwon just check out the link i posted). At the school i go to a black belt is someone who has been attending the school usaully about 4 years. (some have done obtained a blackbelt in 3 and others 5. 4 is the usual). They have to know the 8 poomse and the black belt form. If your a adult you have to be in enough physical shape to pass the military standards (regular army not marines.) They have to be able to do a vast amount of board breaks be successful on 2 on 1 sparring. weapon sparring. They even have to be good at grappel sparring. Also the master makes the black belts write essays to. And if you even mess up on 1 area you fail. (im not a black belt btw.) Thats the best answer i can give. there is no set national standard of what a black belt should be in Taekwondo which is apart of the problem.
