    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Why continue Taekwondo?

    In two months I'll drop 554 and that will buy me 5 months at my TKD school. Right now I'm thinking this will be my last go around with training the art. I'm brown high right now and by the end of my contract I'm sure I'll be brown high with two stripes but what more can I expect if I continue. If you're a black belt or a higher brown belt did you learn anything that more complex past brown belt? I can maintain striking skills and adopt better ones with other disciplines so I'm really not seeing a reason to continue past this last go around. Please chime in with your experiences and expectations one should have if they go to black belt level.

    I'm a second Dan. That's my rank. White belt is normally a 10th Kyu. What is your rank?

    Oh I got you at our school they don't stress the ranks unless you're a black belt. Those of us with lower belts just identify by the belt but I'm going to do a little research and see what I can find.

    My school is associated with AIMAA a federation created by Hee IL Cho. I'm guessing you either have to be with ITF or WTF to get clear ranking info. So like I said in my last post lower than black belt you're just the belt.

    If it's AIMAA then there's lots more to learn. One of the more legitimate groups of TKD out there. They do both WTF and ITF forms. As for ranking just count the belts. 8-10 belts to black normally.
