Welcome to MT! Sorry I'm not well versed in the Korean arts, however many here are. There is a very large KMA section here on MT with many knowledgeable members, don't worry, you've come to the right place for information.

Again Welcome to MT and happy posting.

First, welcome, and happy posting! :wavey:

Second, here's a list of the terms you're looking for:

1 : il 2 : ee 3 : sahm 4 : sah 5 : oh 6 : ryook 7 : chil 8 : pal 9 : koo 10 : ship
So, 1st dan would be il dan, 2nd would be ee dan, etc.

Welcome aboard, Bret.

Kacey's pretty much dead on, although many Korean systems will use "cho" instead of "il" for that 1st dan rank.
