Color: Black

Kate Smith tells us that, "Black is authoritative, powerful and mysterious, evoking potential and possibility, and providing a restful emptiness. It is associated with sophistication and power, symbolizes the combination of all colors of the universe and, as represented by a Black Belt, is the beginning of true achievement, understanding and wisdom, with the bending of the mind and body into one, and into a unity within oneself and with the universe."
