Testing Requirements

Cho Dan (first degree Black Belt) - Midnight Blue Belt


(In Traditional Tang Soo Do, Dans wear Midnight Blue Belts rather than Black Belts, because our founder - the Great Grand Master Hwang Kee - felt that black symbolized death and the end of things, while the color of the midnight sky represented an on-going search for knowledge and understanding.   Thus, he chose Midnight Blue as the color for all Dan ranks, to signify that our training and quest for improvement does not stop just because we have reach a certain level of expertise)
