Progression Measurement

Goal-setting is an important part of Tang Soo Do training.  As a training tool, we use stripes on the belts in order to measure progress, and we give the student a goal to work for.  On the right hand side of the belt (viewing the person wearing the belt from the front)  we indicate major leaps in rank by attaching black or white stripes on the belt.  On the left hand side, we indicate progress inside the rank by attaching blue stripes.  Below are tables indicating the requirements for progressing in rank. Furthermore, additional stripes may be added as indicated below. This is done to stress good technique, and to keep bad habits from forming:
