What is a White Belt?
I always tell my new students that all a White Belt is, is first gear. Your only purpose as a White Belt is to start moving forward.
White belt is the most important belt you will ever put on. It means you have made the decision to start an extremely difficult journey where being the new person means getting beat up more than you would like.
