Let’s start with a basic rundown of the martial arts belt system. Many martial art disciplines have their own belt system that progresses from beginner to advanced. As a rule, the belts get darker as the learner progresses.
When it comes to Jeet Kune Do karate belts, we proceed from white to black belt as the highest degree.
White Belt The white belt represents the birth or beginning of a person’s desire to learn karate techniques, and it is worn by people who are just starting out. It is not appropriate to hit others on your first day. We practise tactics with you before putting you in a combat situation.
Yellow represents the initial rays of sunlight that provide new development and vitality to a seedling. As a result, a beginner who has acquired the fundamentals of karate wears the yellow belt.
Learning basic stances, punches, and kicks is the main focus. At 50% contact, we start mild sparring. Emphasize the importance of learning about focus, discipline, and bullying prevention.
Orange Belt Because orange signifies the sun’s increasing strength, an orange belt is awarded to a beginner once he or she has learned all ten self-defense skills in karate.
Focus: We start working on more complex takedowns and combinations. Our courses emphasise the necessity of understanding that giving is preferable to taking. The fundamental to martial arts is to be kind and generous.
Green Belt Green is a symbol of progress, hence it is awarded to intermediate pupils who are working to improve and perfect their skills.
Striking and grappling/wrestling are mixed at this stage. Students must begin practising at home, which necessitates self-control.
The blue belt is given to students at the stage of their studies when they begin to learn additional knowledge of the martial art that allows their minds and bodies to continue to grow and develop. Blue represents the sky and the light it provides all growing things, so the blue belt is given to students at the stage of their studies when they begin to learn additional knowledge of the martial art that allows their minds and bodies to continue to grow and develop.
Students will be able to protect themselves at this point. If the learner and parent agree, real sparring can commence at this level. The emphasis in the lessons is on being a leader rather than a follower.
Purple Belt A purple belt is given to a pupil who is transitioning into the advanced stages of study. Purple depicts the hues of dawn.
Students develop sophisticated footwork at this stage. By this point, the curriculum is very comparable to our adult programme. We emphasise the relevance of the statement “martial arts is for self-defense, not ego boost.” Lessons emphasise when to be firm and when to give in.
The Sun’s red-hot might is symbolised by the crimson belt. Students with red belts learn to be cautious of their practise in the same manner that a growing plant must stretch slowly toward the Sun. A pupil with a red belt is learning to become dangerous in his or her knowledge and talents, as red is also a sign of danger.
Focus: By aiding in classes, students begin informally educating younger and less experienced students. Other highlights include volunteering in our community, donating to charities, and supporting issues that we believe in.
