Black Belt Registry
Black Belt is an honorary status held upon merit, not a trophy to simply be collected. As such it must be earned, and then maintained.
Black Belt status within the Ilyo Mu Do Kwan is only conferred upon those students who, after demonstrating the requirements of the Black Belt examination, maintain their active participation in the martial arts, and hold a current membership of the Academy. They are required to submit for a review of their standards twice per calendar year.
If a student is not in regular training, or fails to submit for a review, their Black Belt status will expire.
Any person not listed on this site may not be a registered Black Belt with the Ilyo Mu Do Kwan / Ilyokwan Black Belt Academy, so if you have any queries or information about any person not listed here claiming to be a black belt within the Academy, please contact us for confirmation.
