The colors of the belt, also called obi, are a symbol of degree the student has achieved and experience. The color system of belt, Kyokushin is a more accurate measure in regard to the techniques learned, or kyu, even that does not imply superiority in combat, for example, someone takes yellow or green belt does not mean can not beat a brown or black, it just means that the student does not have the time or technical level training to give sufficient consideration.

In Kyokushin, or at least in the IFK, do not you clean the belt. For two main reasons, one is that it symbolizes the sweat and wash hard training would make it disappear. The other reason is quite simple, with the belt color washing can fade, no one wants a belt instead of pastel yellow.
The Kyokushin system is graduation from the white, blue (or blue), yellow, green, brown and black. In some schools are set to use tape or nails in the belt corresponding to intermediate states between colors. After each test (if approved, of course) comes the new belt with a diploma or certificate.


White - Purity

Yellow - Firmness

Here one learns to focus the power concentradose in the hara (lower abdomen) and tanden (point where the energy is concentrated, the center of gravity of the body) is just behind where the belt knot.
The karateka should focus on mastering the techniques with emphasis on strength and speed, as well as coordination.

Green - Emotion and Sensibility

During this period begins to dominate the karate techniques and katas learn basic and complex. Training in this belt is harder and longer. It seeks a better control of the mind and body, more strength and understanding of the technical background, yet its meaning. Combat is also more demanding.
