Is there a list of martial artists with fourth dan blackbelts?

Yes, there are many such lists. Unfortunately, there is no single, certified, authentic or official listing. There are many martial arts organizations, and they each maintain their own listings (or not).Taekwondo - the premier organization for certifying black belts in taekwondo is the kukkiwon. Everyone who competes at the international level in tournaments sponsored by the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) must have a certificate from the kukkiwon certifying their black belt level. In 1995, it was estimated that 2.3 million people world wide hold a kukkiwon dan certificate. If the kukkiwon maintains a list of fourth degree black belts, they have not made it available to the public.

Where on the Internet can you find out which Tae Kwon Do belts you earned?

The only places on the Internet with this information would be the Kukkiwon website for checking Kukkiwon registered Dan or Poom rank, or if your instructor or organization has a website of their own, then they might have records such as this available online. If your Black Belt Dan rank was certified by the Kukkiwon, you can look it up on the internet, or contact them for a copy of your certificate. If you are returning to training after a lengthy absence, then your taekwondo instructor can evaluate your skills, and make an appropriate rank assignment.

How do you find your name listed at the Kukkiwon in South Korea?

Colored belt ( Kyu, Gup ) rank is not recorded at Kukkiwon . That's why the Black Belt application form asks for your promotion history ( on side B, as " Taekwondo Records " ). Black Belts ( Poom & Dan ) are listed by A ) certification # and B ) name / rank / country.

What city was tae kwon do created in?

The modern-day curriculum for the Korean National Martial Art, and the chosen term of Taekwondo was founded and named in the city of Seoul, South Korea, beginning with the first official Kwan (affiliated school) called Chung Do Kwan in 1944, followed by the establishment of the Korea Taekwondo Association in 1961, and the unification of Kwans in the Kukkiwon National Academy and World Taekwondo Headquarters in 1972.

What is the original Tae Kwon Do?

KTA - Korea Taekwondo Association Taekwondo was a name submitted by ballot and selected on April 11, 1955 to represent a unification of Korean Martial Art Kwans (affiliated schools). The first original kwan was the Chung Do Kwan, founded in Seoul, South Korea, in 1944 by Grandmaster Won-Kuk Lee. The first and original Taekwondo organization was the Korea Taekwondo Association (KTA) founded in 1961 with the uniting of the major Kwans. This was the original Taekwondo and has given rise to the official authority of the Kukkiwon, World Taekwondo Headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. The Kwan system was officially retired, yet Kwan affiliated organizations and federations still remain today with most official Kwan associations following the Kukkiwon curriculum, and others who do not. There are a large number of independent schools as well, but any legitimate school can trace their Taekwondo lineage through instructors, masters, and grandmasters back to one of the five original Kwan.
