The Belt system is a demonstration of progressive goal setting and achievement. For example a student wants to move up to the next belt so at that moment, they may or may not realize the goal is set. There are specific requirements for that belt so the student focuses on the required skills until they have all they need. Shortly after receiving the new belt their sights are set on the next one. Each rank progressively requires more knowledge and skill so perseverance is developed.
A White Belt is the absence of rank, it is the beginning of the Martial Arts Journey.
