What color belt is higher than the black belt in Tae Kwon Do?

Unlike some Japanese systems (Judo / Karate), in Taekwondo there are no color belts higher than the Black Belt. The Black Belt is the highest rank in Taekwondo, and there are different degrees of the Black Belt. The philosophy is that the student is a "geup" (grade), which is represented by a color belt starting at white and becoming gradually darker as the student approaches the Black Belt level. The expert is a "Dan" (degree) holder, represented by a Black Belt. The official Black Belt ranks in Taekwondo have 9 active Degrees with a 10th Degree currently being an honorary or posthumous rank. Taekwondo uses a solid Black Belt with a single stripe for each Degree (1st through 9th Dan).


What does it mean to have a 9th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do?

To have earned a ninth degree black belt in taekwondo means that you are extremely disciplined and controlled, and you have achieved the second highest rank there is, only ten people have ever been awarded a tenth degree black belt! It also means that one has done extensive theoretical studies on Taekwondo, and also, has made great contributions to the art. From 7th degree onward, it becomes less about what you can do, and more about what you have done, particularly by way of enriching the art. Traditionally, a taekwondo practitioner must remain at a first degree black belt for one year before testing for a second degree black belt. They must remain at a second degree black belt for two years before testing for a third degree black belt. They must remain at a third degree black belt for three years before testing for a fourth degree black belt, and so forth. If these traditions are maintained, the ninth degree black belt represents approximately 40 years of study. Practitioners at this level are invariably instructors, coaches and champions.
