Most people are unfamiliar with the belt system in karate. Some look at it as arbitrary assignment of colors to determine rank. While the belts to distinguish practitioners is based on a determined mastery of skill, there are specific reasons why a beginner starts with a white belt and a teacher achieves a black belt. Karate is comprised of two fighting techniques: one of fighting effectiveness and the other based on philosophical teachings. It has developed into a discipline with a belt system to help students and instructors keep track of progress. Belt order can vary among disciplines but most people know that white is for the beginner and the black is for the teacher. Illusion Karate Academy has chosen these 5 belts for its ranking system.
