Green Belt

“The pine tree is beginning to develop and grow in strength.” The student’s technique is developing power. The components of the basic techniques are beginning to work in unison.
The green belt represents growth. In living for the future, growth is necessary and essential for living. Since growth is normally associated with change, we must accept changes although they may cause feelings of insecurity. Memories of our achievements in Taekwondo serve many functions.
