As we approach the spring season, I think of how our Tang Soo Do belt system is related to the seasons. Traditionally, we only had four Belts – White, Green, Red and Black. Each belt corresponds with a specific season. White is winter, Green is spring, Red is summer and Black is fall.

The story takes [ Read More ]
