Belt Ranking

At Jacobs Martial Arts we teach Chungdokwan Taekwondo.  The belts reflect a member's proven level of competence and (just as importantly) the progression of colors reflects an inner journey that never truly ends.  Each belt achieved is truly an accomplishment worthy of respect.

It is also worth noting that achieving a belt isn't just a matter of "spending enough time" in a previous belt.  In order to achieve their next rank, a student must demonstrate their proficiency in their current belt's techniques, to include Basic Moves, Sparring, and Forms.
