My family has undertaken the Korean Martial Art of Tae Kwon Do.  we are subscribed for the Black Belt Program. 

Advancement to Black Belt status is achieved through the use of the Color Belt Patterns.

Our school is called Young Brothers Tae Kwon Do, which is one of the first Tae Kwon Do schools to be introduced in the USA.  Our school is lead by the Grand Master Young Bo Kong.  We go to the Main School, here in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, PA.
