White Belt Curriculum
Required Knowledge: Chon Ji (Chun Jee) when translated from Korean, it means “Heaven and Earth”. It was interpreted in the first book of the classic I Ching in which it explained all processes of growth and change in the natural world. Chon Ji symbolizes the creation of the universe. The Low Block represents the Earth, and the Inner Forearm Block represents Heaven.
White Belt represents “purity and Innocence”, as that of a beginning student who has no knowledge of TaeKwonDo. The student is like a seed just planted.
TaeKwonDo when translated literally is Foot (tae), fist (kwon), and way (do). It has commonly known as the “the art of kicking and punching”.
Striking Area (part of the foot) for the Front Kick is the ball of the foot. For a Side Kick it is the heel and for the Crescent Kick uses the outside blade of the foot.
Five Tenants of TaeKwonDo:
Courtesy- to be kind
Integrity- to be honest
Perseverance- never give up
Self Control- control the body
Indomitable Spirit- to be modest and honest at all times
