It takes about 3 years to get your first degree. Then you have to be a first degree for 1 year, a second degree for 2 years, and so on. So probably about 6 years.

In my style the absolute minimum would be eight years.

What is a ninth 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.
