Red Belt (2nd Gup)

The color red symbolizes intensity. In this stage you feel uncontrollable enthusiasm towards reaching the coveted Black Belt. You should be self-motivated and your dedication obvious to your instructors. Another symbol for the color red is the blood, sweat, and tears you have put into your training so far. You and your instructors should feel you have taken chances with your techniques, as well as begun to make the techniques your own.

All testing material from previous ranks will be required.
