The Black Belt Lions

ITF-Belgium has the objective to build a strong national team, with its own identity. Therefore we have found a new name for the national team, a name as strong as the willing to perform abroad.
Now has come the time to unveil it officially, the new name of the national team is:

The Black Belt Lions

This is a strong meaning name; the Lion was selected, as it is one of the Belgian most important symbols that represent among others the unity of our country, a symbol of courage, power, strength and independence!
Also, the Lion because it’s also the king of the jungle, a symbol of wisdom, living in a group, supporting each other, a true example to follow and an inspiration for the younger members.
Black belts in order to have the meaning of who is part of this team and it has one of the colours of our flag.
