My grandson's belt has been hanging in this spot for about 2 1/2 years. They start out in a white coat and when they make a decision to go all the way to black belt their coat changes to red - The Black Belt Club and they get their black belt and it hangs there for them to see their goal.
This is how they do it - they call up all the people getting belts from white senior - today someone got their second degree black belt. So near the end the brown belt senior is called. Their were two who made it. They say of 100 starting - two will finish - here they are.
Next they turn away from the flags to do any belt adjustments - out of respect.
They turn around and then the black belt will be tied.
The man tying the belt on is one of the Masters Of Choi Kwang Do - he is 5th degree black belt.
He is now an official black belt given to him by a Grand Master.
Out of all the past belts and all the degrees he may get - the first black belt - is the biggest deal. Because you never go to color again. And they made a big deal out of it.
This is his family of black belts and instructors that helped him a long the way.
He has earned the title of being called SIR - not here though - lol - just on the DoJo.
Thanks so much for letting me brag on him a few days. I'm done. He starts training tonight for his 2nd degree black belt - it will take around 27 months. And out of the 100 that start one will go this far!
