From year to year, slight changes occur in the rules. For instance, sometimes the word Toe-chang is used, and other times, Do-chang or Doe-chang, depending on the romanization system used.
Also Grandmaster, master, instructor, and black-belt get juggled around a bit as different numbers of people attain different ranks in each of the schools.
