White Belt

White Belt (Hween Dee)

Tenth Keup

Belt Color Explanation:

White light gives the appearance of purity and brilliance, but when directed through a prism we can see that is composed of all the colors of the spectrum. So it is that the beginner whose vision is pure and pristine, when it is directed through the prism of training with sincerity and dedication, we can see that his or her essence is potential. He or she is the seed hidden beneath the winter’s snow.
