Advancing throughout the systems
of Martial Arts have been symbolized
through different color Belts, Sashes,
They offer the Student a visual goal.
They acknowledge publicly their status
within the system of study.
Although Mr. Miyagi said it best..
"Belt to hold up Pants."
The feeling one receives from earning the Black Belt
is a personal reward like no other achieved.
Blood, Sweat and Tears are forged into making each
and every one of them.
Once a Black Belt always a Black Belt.
But, don't be naïve in believing that this is the end of your journey toward complete Balance. Because a true Black Belt knows it's just the beginning.
