Dear Black Belts,

I wish to recognize your outstanding achievement. You sought, you worked hard and you succeeded. This honor will be with you for the rest of your life.

You are now responsible to maintain the honor of this title. This is not an easy task, but it was your commitment to enter the society of Black Belt. You swore to assume the responsibilities in your willingness to take the test. Now as a Black Belt, you must devote yourself as a teacher, as a leader, as a representative of Tang Soo Do, and, most of all, as an example of a Black Belt.

As a Dan member, the following responsibilities apply:

  1. Attend all school belt testing events to support and lead.
  2. Attend all school demonstrations within our local community  to support, perform, assist with and advertise.
  3. Region 2 annual Championships are mandatory to participate and compete in as well as be a judge.
  4. Black Belts are expected to participate at one Black Belt/TAC Clinic a year, one Black Belt review a year and one Regional Leadership clinic a year.
  5. Attend the WTSDA Championships held every two years in Greensboro, North Carolina.

I hope you have an honorable Black Belt life. I am proud of you and look forward to working with you to achieve our common goals.

Tang Soo!


Grandmaster Jae C. Shin
Founder, World Tang Soo Do Association
