What is the name of the red and black belt in the ATA?

It is called the red/black belt. It represents recommended first degree black belt, which is a temporary status awarded shortly before the black belt. If a student does not test for his or her black belt within a specified amount of time, he or she may be demoted back to red belt. The same level of achievement may also be shown by wearing a black belt without embroidery on it. In the American Taekwondo Association (ATA) black belts have gold embroidery on them showing their name, rank, and sometimes personal motos like determination or strength.I do not know if the above is correct in ATA. For WTF (Kukkiwon) it is as follows:The half-red, half-black belt is called a Poom Belt, and it represents a black belt for students 15 or younger. It is usually embroidered with the student's name and rank just like a standard black belt and is worn with the red half on top. The student may continue to receive higher poom ranks up through 4th poom at the same intervals as a black belt. It may be replaced with a full black belt of the same rank without re-testing once the student turns 16.

How strong is a black belt?

The belt itself is pretty strong, made of silk layered over a cotton core, with eight or ten rows of stitching. A black belt student might also be very strong; although there is no particular strength requirement for the black belt test, training toward a black belt results in increased strength. It should also be remembered that although you may have earned a black belt, you will not maintain your strength unless you maintain your training.

Many styles have an age limit associated with being able to test for black belt. As such those students that show the necessary skills, but not the age and maturity that comes with it, for a black belt may be given the Junion Black Belt ranking until they reach the appropriate age. Some styles the requirements are the same, in others, a couple of additional kata are necessary to test for the full black belt level.

How long does it take to get to black belt in Tae Kwon Do?

Well, I cannot tell what style you do so this is what the Tae Kwon Do belt order and time. (After the month means since you started.) White Belt- You start with this. Yellow Belt- Test after 3 months. Green Belt- Test after 6 months. Blue Belt- Test after 9 months. Purple Belt- Test after 1 year. Red Belt- Test after 15 months. Brown Belt- Test after 18 months. Deputy Black Belt- Test after 20 months. Black Belt- Test a year after you go your Deputy Black Belt. It depends entirely on how hard you work at it. Things vary from style to style and school to school. Our style has no time limits set on promotions. The only limits are for Dan rankings and you have to have studied for three years before you can test for black belt.

How do you get your blackbelt if you have been in Tae Kwon Do for 4 years?

You really need to talk with your instructor. If you have been studying taekwondo for four years, you really ought to be ready to test for your black belt. Black belt tests are only given a couple of times a year. Your instructor can help you apply for your test. If your instructor does not think that you are ready to test yet, ask him or her what it is that he or she thinks you need to do to become ready, and then put forth every effort to what ever it is that they suggest. Being ready to take a black belt test is about more than skill level. You also have to display the proper attitude in class, and your behavior at home and at school must also be respectful and honorable.
