Newark Kenpo Karate

It’s so important to challenge and encourage our girls to pursue their interests. Karate classes are a great way to learn about bravery. Stop in and get information on how to get started.

Newark Kenpo Karate

"The Black Belt is just the beginning."

By: Victor Moreno
Translated by: Leon Major

At the time of awarding the black belt a teacher asks the disciple one last question before his graduation.

He waits on his knees, with his head down, thinking about the hours and days it took him to achieve this award ...

"What is the true meaning of the black belt ?.

"The end of the road, a well-deserved reward for the work I've done."

The teacher looks at him, and replies:

"You're not worthy of this belt yet, come back next year."

The following year, the disciple kneels in front of his teacher and is asked the same question:
"What is the true meaning of the black belt?"

"It is a symbol of distinction and of the highest realization of our art, says the disciple"

"You're still not ready for the black belt, come back next year," the teacher replies in a very dour voice. "

In the third year, the disciple, sitting in front of his teacher, waits for the question, and responds with a more deliberate and more sensitive tone:

"The black belt represents the beginning, the beginning of an endless journey of discipline, work and the search for ever higher standards."

The teacher with a slight smile drawn, responds:

"Now if you're ready, take your black belt and start your working to deserve it."

Because a degree is never a prize and that, but a great responsibility to try to always be up to the task.

The case of the black belt is similar to that of the white belt and far from representing "mastery" as most people think. It simply represents a new beginning.

It means you have established solid a base both technically and morally to really begin to learn and grow on the martial path.

How true Been a black belt for a very long time been through all the techniques and forms but yet when I go to class I learn new things every time I go It's a life journey

Indeed very true. It's the beginning of learning just how much responsibility you have to help others. To give back to the Art and those who helped you. It's the never ending cycle to start back with the basics. Accept the lessons you learn from your students and never have an ego and think it is beneath you. Then, start all over again and continue on your journey.
