White Belt Represents purity. The innocence of an individual about the art itself and about the specific system that each particular Master teaches. It represents the open-mindedness that a student must have to learn anything new; to be able to understand the myriad of complexities of daily life. The white belt is symbolic of an empty cup that has nothing in it but is always ready and able to receive.
