How soon can I get my first belt?
Everyone starts with a white belt. If you train regularly, in 3 months you should be ready to take a grading (examination) to earn a red belt. The progression after this is yellow, orange, green, brown and finally black. With hard work it is possible to reach black belt in 4 to 41/2 years. Progress does not end there, as a holder of a black belt you can take a grading to move from1st to 2nd Dan and so on.
