comment Martial art without exam and secrets
Hardly an expansive, explanatory answer. Should be a comment unless you can flesh it out some.

comment Which a Martial Art fir self defence?
Also, nobody on the internet can tell you which would be more beneficial. And, your question is not really on topic for the site, as it's a "Which art is better" question.

comment Martial art without exam and secrets
If you have someone that teaches you and "holds back" because they think you might beat them someday, that person should not be an instructor. The primary goal for ANY instructor, and a great compliment to the instructor is when the student can outperform them.

@KeithNicholas - The internet has different standards than most SE sites.

I realize that it is tongue in cheek, but as evidenced, a martial arts beginner may not know that you are mocking the style.

comment What is the name of the traditional taekwondo black belt bo form?
As I understand it, Kuk Mu founded CDK. GM Son founded WTA, and was a student of Kuk Mu. No worries, though, just nitpicking now. :p

comment What is the name of the traditional taekwondo black belt bo form?
Is it possible that the form is named different? The only "chumbi" form I found was an introductory one by Westerfield TKD club, but a few that suggested it was a misspelling of "choon be", or the ready command.

Are any of these weapons forms? The OP is specifically asking about the bo staff form. Also, I thought CDK followed the Kukkiwon forms? This list is a mix of several different variations of CDK, which means it is probably school dependent.

As Andy Jeffries states, Kukkiwon does not recognize any official weapons forms. ATA has 3 different jangh bong forms, short range, long range and windstaff. I know a WTF school locally that has two different staff forms, which is different than the WTF school I attended in Nevada.

comment What are the belt colors of Tae Kwon Do in order?
Got it. And yes, a lot of federations allow Dan ranks to promote to a dan rank two below them. (3rd to 1st, 4th to 2nd, etc.), with high ranks (4+) needing a testing panel.

You talk about Dan rankings, they are not color belts. And you seem to treat the Kukkiwon as the sole arbiter of belts in TKD, which is far from the case.

You left out poom ranks, as well as that not all TKD associations recognize 4th dan as Master, some are higher.

I don't believe you have to be a 4th degree to conduct a colored belt test. You do (or have to bring in people) for dan testings, but I believe for colored belts you can be under 4th dan and still conduct the testing.
