Taekwon-Do Belts

Meaning of belts in Tae Kwon Do

White Belt
Signifies innocence, as that of the beginning student who has no previous knowledge of Tae Kwon Do.

Yellow Belt
Signifies the earth from which a plant sprouts and takes root as the foundation of Tae Kwon Do is being laid.

Green Belt
Signifies the plant’s growth as Tae Kwon Do skills begin to develop.

Blue Belt
Signifies the Heaven towards which the plant matures into a towering tree as training in Tae Kwon Do progresses.

Red Belt
Signifies Danger, cautioning the student to exercise control and warning the opponent to stay away.

Black Belt
Opposite of white, therefore signifying the maturity and proficiency in Tae Kwon Do, also indicates the wearer’s imperviousness to darkness and fear.
