What to Expect at a Belt Ceremony


In Tae Kwon-Do, our belts are used as a label to signify the training level a student has completed.

The Belt Ceremony is the final process of each level’s curriculum. It signifies that a student has completed and learned all the skills associated to that belt level and that the student is ready to advance in their training.

The ceremony is similar to graduation where as the students will line up and we’ll announce their names to come forward to receive their belts and certificates. The students and parents will begin tying the belt’s knot halfway and then I will finish the knot for each student. This symbolizes the partnership between the school and the student, that we’re both working together to make ourselves better.

We then talk about what you can anticipate at the next belt level. We’ll discuss growth, leadership, and your new expectations. If you’ve received your yellow belt, you’ll now be responsible for a green belt skill set. We show you the way to a higher level of performance in all aspects of your life.

We recommit ourselves to the Tenets Of Tae Kwon-Do (Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit) as well as the Student Creed. As you progress in your training, new challenges will arise. We take the time to talk and make sure you’re prepared for the future.

But most importantly, the Belt Ceremony is a celebration. It acknowledges all the hard work the student has done. Each belt is a milestone and we celebrate this accomplishment.
