The Principles of the Martial Arts
Oriental martial arts mirror many of the beliefs and customs of the Orient. More than merely combat techniques, most martial arts offer their practitioners a way of life based on Eastern philosophy. Martial arts can be best understood if the aspects of Oriental thought are practiced. The expression "martial arts" refers to numerous styles of combat originating in the Orient. The most common martial arts are aikido, judo, jujutsu, karate, kung-fu, and tae kwon do. Many arts share certain customs and practices with which the student should become familiar.

Before the eyes can see,
they must be incapable of tears.
Before the ear can hear,
it must have lost its sensitiveness.
Before the voice can speak
in the presence of the Masters,
it must have lost the power to wound.
(M. C.)

This has been a very rewarding martial art experience for not only myself, but my family, as well. We now spend 45 minutes, three nights a week, coming together and practicing as a family. My children, ages 5, 8 and 11, enjoy this Hapkido program very much. We are looking forward to achieving the next level.

Black belt
Black belt worn in the Japanese, Okinawan, and Korean martial arts is generally recognized as an expert. In most styles there are 10 degrees of black belt, called dan (rank; degree), in which the latter five are honorary. In some styles, the recognized master, a 10th- degree black belt, will at his option wear a red belt. Judo black belts are typically awarded by a national governing body whose standards are relatively high and competitive, with that of other international bodies. In other martial arts, especially karate, certification of a black belt is not controlled by any single organization. Often, therefore, the standards required to achieve a black belt greatly vary. Since the mid-1960s, large numbers of karate black belts have emerged, many with questionable qualifications. There are major karate organizations whose membership maintains a high standard, but frequently one instructor will promote his students to black belt status based strictly on his own criteria. Similar problems exist in jujutsu, tae kwon do, and other martial arts in which a sole governing association is absent. An especially acute problem is the large number of high-ranking black belts whose only achievement has come through self-promotion of rank.
