Every student is different and learns (and progresses) at his or her own pace. The main factors that affect progression include:

  • How often the student attends class
  • The student’s age
  • The student’s fitness level
  • Natural talent

Though some schools promise a black belt in three years or less, this is never a good thing. At Akula Taekwondo, every student advances at their own pace, based on their own merits. It generally takes five to seven years to earn a Black Belt.
