The Green Belt (6th Grade)

Congratulations on achieving your Green Belt!


Green Belt is an extremely important stage in Taekwon-Do.  It is a time where students start understanding things and noticing serious growth.


Green Belt is also the first stage where a student may experience boredom.  In order to avoid this on your journey or to get through it you will need to PUSH yourself so you continue to see great things happen.


We recommend setting goals outside your comfort zone!


To start, please watch the intro video.
