Mercer Island Martial Arts Belt Meanings

I have had several students ask about the meanings of the belt, so here you go:

WHITE BELT...

Is the first belt, represents a beginning, a purity and a lack of knowledge of the Martial Arts

GOLD/YELLOW BELT...

Represents growth and exploration.  Now we see the need for more knowledge and dynamic techniques.

GREEN BELT...

Represents the trees, the roots are now firmly planted and we reach up into the sky for light and greater knowledge.

PURPLE BELT...

Represents the internal changes that occur as we strive to strengthen and purify our inner being.

BLUE BELT...

Represent the sky above the trees, searching for more techniques.

BROWN BELT...

Represents the color of the earth, as a foundation from which Martial Arts philosophy grows.

RED BELT...

Represents the sun, high in the sky, filled with energy and power

RED BELT WITH BLACK STRIPE...

Represents the fusing of your mind and body as you strive even harder to become the Golden Individual.

IL DAN BO...

Represents the arrival of completion to your journey toward Black Belt.

BLACK BELT...

Represents the culmination of efforts and achievements, it's a recognition of excellence and assurance in our proven abilities.  It is also a new beginning to a higher level of knowledge.
