Decoding the Colors
Each belt color in Karate carries significance, reflecting the journey of a practitioner as they advance through the ranks:

White: The starting point of every Karateka's (a practitioner of Karate) journey. The white belt symbolizes purity, humility, and the willingness to learn.

Yellow: As a Karateka progresses from white to yellow, they begin to grasp the basic techniques and fundamental principles of Karate.
