How long does it take to reach black belt?
The time taken to achieve black-belt depends greatly on the students level of commitment and their aptitude. Like life, you only get as much out of Hapkido as you put in.
A fit, coordinated student training hard 5 or 6 classes a week can reach black belt in as little as a year. Others may take two years or even longer.
It all depends on you. Our Association does not apply minimum waiting periods between colour belt gradings. We hold gradings every six weeks, and students may grade each time if they are competent & their instructor feels they are ready.
