Taekwondo is one of the more recently introduced of the martial arts, with its beginnings in Korea in 1945. A number of Korean martial arts specialists in Seoul founded some new schools known as "kwans", combining various martial arts techniques.

Taekwondo Belts (Ranking)
Because there are a number of disciplines of Taekwondo there's never been any uniform system for allocating belts (ranks). What exists is however relatively similar and comprises a couple of belt groups "senior" and "junior" (black and colour), each of these groupings is split into ranks, eight to twelve colours in the case of juniors and nine "blacks" for seniors.
In the UK Taekwondo has a series of ranks which are known as "Kup", these ranks range from 10th (lowest) to 1st (highest). If you are curious about the Taekwondo belt order, it's as follows, and is portrayed by a range of colours i.e. white, yellow, green, blue and red, with intermediary belts with stripes, namely white with a yellow stripe, yellow with a green stripe, green with a blue stripe, blue with a red stripe and red with a black stripe. The 10th Kup (White Belt) is what Taekwondo newbies in Kirriemuir will commence with, they can then move up through the different colours, eventually reaching the Red Belt With a Black Stripe (1st Kup), which can take around 3-4 years of dedication.
After succeeding with this challenge, Taekwondo students in Kirriemuir are considered to be "black belt candidates" which requires them to move through yet another nine ranks (Dans) right up until they eventually achieve the accolade of "Black Belt". So, the bottom line is, there are three principal groups in the Taekwondo belt order, that is Junior Belts, Senior Belts and Black Belts. The Junior group of Taekwondo Belts comprise; White (Tenth), White With a Yellow Stripe (Ninth), Yellow (Eighth), and Yellow With a Green Stripe (Seventh). The Senior group of Taekwondo Belts are; Green (Sixth), Green With a Blue Stripe (Fifth), Blue (Fourth), Blue With a Red Stripe (Third), Red (Second), and Red With a Black Stripe (First). The Black division of Taekwondo Belts comprise First to Ninth Dan rankings, and involves many years of dedicated training.
