I have been taking karate for 10 years now. I will be getting my black belt in June. I have been looking at many applications and see the "honor/award" category. Is a black belt considered an honor/award? Can I write tha in "honor/award" and "karate" in EC activities?

Yes! Anything worthwhile that you spend a lot of time on counts as an extracurricular, and any honors you gain in it should "count" on your app. So karate, showing livestock, ballet, theater, art, music, whatever all counts even if you do it outside your school.

good job, finally that's a black belt worth putting down, for tai kwon doe, ppl get lack belts after a couple years and it's a misconception that the achievement is commensurate with that of attaining a black belt in karate, i was getting my green belt, while my friend, who started tai kwon doe after like 2 years was already going fr her black belt, i was like, oooooookkkkkkkk, but whatever

Yes, put it down! It will show that you have a personality and that you are not a robot that studies for 10 hours a day. Not only that but achieving an honor such as a black belt is something to be proud of.

TKD is a horrible style and as mentioned earlier...not that difficult to advance in. My personal favorite is Wing Chung Kung's a beautiful fighting style. Though, muy thai and gracie jujitsu are quite fun as well when you're really angry.

My monkey style is far more powerful than your tiger style.

Let's kung fu!
