    WARNING : pointless TKD question inside

    Im looking for a good close up picture of an ITF TKD black belt. Im having an argument with a friend on the differences of WTF and ITF and the belt system, and the pics on ITF's webpage dont show any good pics of the belts. My argument is that an ITF belt will have the persons name in english, as well as in korean, as well as the dan in roman numerals ie I,II,III ect. as well as taekwon-do in korean on the other side. His argument is that its a plain black belt with the persons name on it in gold lettering, and to represent dan there will be an acuall strip not a roman numeral.

    I personally dont care for TKD but I do love to prove my point, any pics or comments would be appreciated
    I have niether the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manor of which I provide it.

    You can monogram on your own name and whatever you want. It all depends on where the belt is ordered from.
    Now or never.

      I dissagree, the ITF uses the same format for thier belts and you couldnt just monogram your own. A true ITF belt is ordered from the ITF, same as thier doboks, go look in your local martial arts surplus store and i bet you wont find and ITF approved apparell.

        In ITF yes they put the persons name a rank on one "flap"

        And TKD written in Korean on the other"flap"

        Flap being the two parts that hang down after being tied.

          thanks shadow,precisly what i was talking about. to clear it up even further, its your name in korean AND in english on one flap, and taekwon-do in korean on the other , as well as the roman numeral of your dan on both flaps at the very bottom. A good pic that anyone could find would be great.

            How about this one?

            Seriously... if you want a black belt in TKD save the money and order your belt on-line. They will write whatver your heart desires in Korean or English.
            Now or never.

              I say: You're right.

              An authentic ITF black belt is as you say.
              To my knowledge, a WTF blackbelt has the person's name (in Korean) on one flap and the words Taekwondo in Korean script on the other flap. The ITF belt is flashier looking.

                  my belt has my name and school in english on one flap, and Tae Kwon Do in Korean on the other flap. And they don't use roman numerals for degrees, only stripes. so if you're a 9th degree, you get nine stripes not IX.

                    ITF uses Roman Numerals for Black Belt Degrees.

                    Some old-school Korean masters use stripes instead. My belt has stripes, not Roman Numerals. But roman numerals are standard for ITF black belts.

                        ITF black belt has ITF Taekwon-Do in korean on one side and your name in english and your dan number on the other. The dan number is in Roman Numerals not stripes.
