Belt colour signifies rank, or proficiency.
At Edge Taekwondo, beginners wear a white belt, then graduate to yellow, blue, red then black.
One, two or three small bands across the end of the belt indicate the levels within each colour.
How to tie your belt
Students have to pass practical and theory tests to progress to the next rank. A serious student can reach black belt in two or three years with constant training.
Students must be fully paid-up members before their first grading.
