"A Black Belt is More than Something You Wear
A Black Belt is More than Something You Earn
A Black Belt is Something You Become"
The TaeKwonDo classroom is an environment of self-discipline, self-control, courtesy, respect and positive thinking. Only a student's best behavior,
attitude and effort is allowed and accepted. Every moment a student spends sitting up straight or standing at attention, every "YES SIR" and bow
of respect, every act of physical control, mental discipline and emotional strength, is another brick in building a true Black Belt.
After years and hundreds of hours, brick after brick, a true Black Belt is something you become. It is on the inside, ingrained in every part of your being,
not something easily changed or lost. A Black Belt is built, brick after brick, on a solid foundation of courtesy, integrity and self-control. A Black Belt is a
champion of freedom and justice, one who works to build a more peaceful world through strength of sound body, mind and spirit.
This is what every student of TaeKwonDo can become. Black Belt is the goal every student has, and can achieve, with perseverance and indomitable spirit. Black Belts are only for those who have proven to be willing and able to push themselves to their highest level of physical skill, mental focus, and
emotional toughness. Only for those with the most committment, dedication, and determination. With these bricks of character, a true Black Belt is built,
and a true Black Belt is what you become.
