The Traditional Taekwondo Black Belt Journey
The panels I've sat on for Black belt gradings seem no different. Not a lot of the focus is on technique. Those grading sheets may contain perhaps one or two points per belt rank focusing on a particular aspect of some technique. But mostly I hear a lot of discussion based on a black belt's understanding of application, their personal motivation, and ... surprisingly, their continued commitment.
I remember a really interesting discussion once surrounding how a brown belt should be retained in grade because of the continued growth that retention would have created. This is the real black belt journey at a rarefied level, folks. Sometimes waiting a little while more for the belt is also important!
