In traditional Karate, there were only 2 belt colors… white, and black. White signified the beginning of life. Black was awarded after the student had basically learned all of what there was, and therefore, was at the end. Colors were introduced later, as a lot of students (especially younger) were quitting, feeling there was nothing accomplished. A student could study/practice for 10 years, and even longer, and still be a white belt. Apparently, the knowledge, itself, was insufficient to keep them interested.
