My place of Instruction: Ocean Tae Kwon Do – Master James Dunbar
February 2011. I started like everyone else. A white belt. All of the kids were so much ahead of me, it was a bit intimidating. Although, this is my 40th Birthday present from my wife, so I am going for it! I felt like an idiot learning to walk and breath.
March 16, 2011 – WHITE Belt – Two Stripes – 13th GUP – First Test. What am I testing? My ability to look like an idiot? Oh well here goes! Basic Movements and I passed! Two stripe jump! Now the next test will be for Yellow belt! How little I knew what I was doing.
Forms – Tiger one, Tiger Two
Belt Color Meanings
Yellow: Earth from which a plant grows
Green: The seed that becomes one with the earth
Blue: Sky toward which plant grows
Red: Fire/danger as plant grows towards sun
Black: Maturity and proficiency in Tae Kwon Do
