*this is JUST a question, im not trying to jump ahead of myself, i plan to EARN everything my instructor gives me*
i noticed that at the school i go to the guys who alread have belts (blue, purple, ect...) EARN new degrees on that belt level before moving up in ranking.
my questions are these:
1. Do you have to EARN the white belt just like the others?
2. How many degrees do they have before you move up in ranking?
I know the answers will vary from school to school so im not sure if this can be answered or not.
