Black Belt Journey "Do" Portfolio:

In a display of the values that define what a Black belt is Spirit Black belts are required to design and manage a community based project taking the values of martial arts spirit out of the Dojang and into the community, setting a good example to all who follow and leading by example.

Below is a blog of all current Black Belt candidates and their progress in their "Do" testing projects.


Black Belt Testing: Walking the walk.

The Black belt is more than just a representation of physical ability, but more of a way of thinking. Many would even go so far as to call it a way of life. This is represented in the "Do" in the name Taekwondo, which loosely translates to "Way".


As part of the development to acheiving a black belt students must demonstrate the principles and attitud that define true black belt attributies and values, both in and outside of the Dojang ( Training hall). This is done through a unique testing process which we call " Do Testing".


Do Testing

For much of the martial arts industry the journey to black belt is steeped in mystery with training conducted behind closed doors, open only to a few. The aim of the Spirit Taekwondo Dan testing sylibus is to make this journey a transparent and inspirational process, providing other Spirit members as well as the community at large to develop a deeper understanding and insiration from the journey taken.


Current and pervious goals and achevements from Do tests can be viewed here in the Do Testing portfolio.
