The GREEN BELT symbolizes the growth of the seed as it sprouts from the earth reaching towards the heavens as it matures into its adult form.
The seed cultivates and begins to define itself within nature. It is developing comfort within its space and looks to understand its function to the world around it.
The Green Belt is beginning to develop within the aspects of the art that best relate to him/her. The vastness of the Martial Arts becomes individualized by how each student uniquely expresses it.
