Belt colors and stripes use on the belts have various meanings assigned by the Sabeom (School Master) of a Dojang (school), or the Kwanjang (Grandmaster - director or founder of an Taekwondo organization). The system of numbering geup (grades) from either 10th or 9th up to 1st grade, and Dan (Black Belt Degree) from 1st to 9th or 10th Degree is fairly standard in taekwondo throughout the world, however the specific colors and stripes used are not as widely standardized. It is best to ask the instructor who issues these particular belts.

First off tae kwon do is not a sport so don't call it that. Second yes if you sign up for quality tae kwon do lessons you can lose weight.

well many schools have different uniforms so it depends on the school. Like in my school haveing a black stripe down each sleeve shows you are a training instructor.
