Taekwondo Attire


Taekwondo attire is slightly different from karate and other martial arts. As for Taekwondo, the uniform is called as "Dobok" where Do means "way" and bok means "clothing." The dobok comes in many colours, though white or black are the most common. The dobok may have the reverse in a different colour than the rest of the dobok. They are made in a variety of materials, ranging from traditional cotton to cotton-polyester blends.The pants and sleevers of the dobok are wider and longer than the traditional Japanese keikogi. Due to this, practitioners often wear a dobok modeled after the Korean hanbok.

  Around the dobok a tti (belt) is worn. The colour of the belt denotes the rank or grade of the wearer. Coloured belts are for geup-holders, while black belts are usually worn by dahn-holders. The order of belt colours may differ from school to school. Most commonly the first belt is a white belt
