Only uniform and a flat surface mat are needed for Taekwondo training.
Taekwondo uniform (Dobok) is neither expensive nor luxurious. It is designed to fit for free body actions. It is believed that the white colour of Dobok signifies purity and origin of all colours. Belts are black, red/black, red, blue, green, yellow and white with these colours designating the degree of Taekwondo proficiency.
The white belt is for beginners, holders of 9th and 10th Keup and the yellow one is worn by 7th and 8th Keup holders. The green belt is used by 5th and 6th Keup graders and the blue one by 3rd and 4th Keup holders. The red belt is worn by the 1st and 2nd Keup holders. The black belt is for Taekwondo experts who hold Dan grades ranging from 1st to 10th Dan. The red/black belt is for those holding 1st through 3rd Poom in the junior division.
