White Belt

You Are Here: White Belt 


White Belt

Essentially when you get your Dobuk your instructor will issue you with your first belt ‘White Belt’.

In the pages prior to this you would have observed that ‘White Belt’ signifies innocence, as that of the beginning student who has no previous knowledge of Taekwon-Do.


So your first exercise will be to learn your beginner stances and sine-wave which you will need to be proficient at to progress further up the ranks. You will also learn the basic kicks, punches and blocks to pass your first pattern requirement which is Chon-Ji. There are two exercise patterns which you will learn first.



Sajo Jirugi – Four way punch

Sajo Makgi – Four way block



These exercise patterns are shown on the next two pages, in addition you should learn the basic

requirements page.
