Or perhaps a red belt with a black stripe? Regardless, a major milestone for my youngest son. He has been training diligently for the past three and a half years and now he starts on his preparation for a black belt.
A red belt in his karate school signifies a student who is starting their year’s study to become a black belt. It takes 1 year from earning the red belt to be eligible to test for the black belt.
The ability to see a long-term objective and to work for a long-term objective is a rare talent. I am really proud of him.
Here is a photo of him waiting to be awarded his red belt.
