Brown Belt with Red Stripe (2nd Mid)
The Mid is a polishing stage. At this point you should be using extra time to put a bit of yourself into your work. A style or attitude of training that is your own and unique. That is what the red symbolizes here; you have given some of your heart and soul and blood into the work. Your instructors and Masters don’t expect the process to be complete. This is just the beginning of a much larger world.
All testing material from previous ranks will be required.
Paper: Taekwondo and my life

‘Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”’
