Green Belt: Signifies the plant's growth as the TKD skill begins to develop

Do-San: Is the pen name of the patriot Ahn-Chang-ho (1876-1938) who devoted his life to furthering the education of Korea and its independence movement. In European history, we think of Aleuin of York (735-804 A.D.), an eminent educator, scholar, and theologian. During the reign of Charlemagne, Aleuin collected books and scrolls from all over Europe.  The distribution of hand-written reproductions of these manuscripts laid the foundation for the great intellectual Renaissance three centuries later.  His motto was disce ut doceas, learn in order to teach.
