6 years - To be eligible to go for your third danblack belt you should have been training for a minimum of six years, depending on how often you train and how hard you train. It should take approximately three years to achieve your first dan, but it could take longer. Traditionally, you must remain at first dan for one year before you can test for second dan. You must remain at second dan for two years before you can test for third dan (3 + 1 + 2 = 6). It remains at the discretion of your instructor and your master when you are eligible promotion. He or she will consider your physical ability as well as your mental control, focus and attitude.

One interesting exception to the waiting periods between dan promotions is the winning of world championship or an Olympic medal. Champions and medalists are often promoted one rank in recognition of their extraordinary accomplishments.

It is hard to answer. My son recently was awarded a Black Belt and was told that he was 3,000+ registered in his organization.

There is no way of knowing. There are so many different organizations that award black belts, and there is no single repository of the data, it can't be calculated. And it is further complicated by the fact that many of the 'registries' are actually international.

There is no way to know for sure, since there are several different associations, and not everyone is registered.

It would be hard to put an exact number on it. Each style has its own registry. I know that within my style there are at least ten eight degree black belts.

At what temperature do you start to get third degree burns?

There is no one specific temperature that will cause one to suffer from third degree burns. This is because the severity of the burn is not only dictated by the temperature of the heat source, but also how a person is exposed (i.e. directly or through cloth) and how long the heat is applied. Even lower temperatures can cause third degree burns if a person is subjected to the heat for long enough. As a general guide, any temperature above 140 degrees will cause immediate third degree burns.

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.

How long does it take for a third degree burn to heal?

Burns are graded in degrees, such as first, second, or third (a few people use fourth, but it is not commonly used). But these designations are based on how much damage the burn does and not on the temperature of the object that caused the burn. For instance, a fire can cause anywhere from a first to third degree burn, and it is very hot, while a chemical such as lye can also cause a first to third degree burn, but it is room temperature.

Can you spell it tai kwon do?

You CAN spell it "tai kwon do" (no one can stop you), but it would not be an accurate translation of the Korean word 태권도, and it would not represent a correct pronunciation. The Korean hangeul translated as "Taekwondo" is often mispronounced. "Tai" is typically pronounced with a long "i" as in the English word "tie." This is correct for the Chinese Tai Chi (Tie - chee), but would be an incorrect pronunciation for the "tae" of Taekwondo, which sounds like the "a" in "tack."Taekwondotae kwon doTaekwon-Dotaegwondoare all accepted spellings, but tai kwon do is not correct.
