The Tae Kwon Do Karate Club has the following belt ranks; white, yellow, green, blue, red, black and master. Everyone starts as a 10th grade white belt to learn the basics and make sure students grasp the techniques they are being taught before they move on to the next level. Studentís line up by rank with the highest rank in front and the lowest rank in the back. This allows students to learn by example.

Everyone moves up at their own pace, tests are done by black belts with the student who are qualified for testing. The testing is held during class. At the end of class, for those that tested successfully, there is a promotion ceremony where they receive their new rank and certificate. Once they receive their new rank, the entire class congratulates the student/black belt.
