What are the colors of the mixed martial arts belts?

White BeltAlmost all martial arts students begin as white belts. The color white symbolizes an innocence of knowledge in the martial arts. White is like an empty void to be filled with knowledge and experience in the martial arts. As a white belt, students will generally learn the fundamentals of the style they are studying.Yellow BeltA yellow belt signifies the first rays of sunlight shining down on a martial arts student. It is like the beginning of a new life as the student takes his first step away from being a beginner with no knowledge of the martial arts. As a yellow belt, students commonly expand their basic knowledge of their martial art and strengthen their fundamentals.Green BeltGreen belts signify a student's progress as, like a plant, they begin to put roots down in their practice and grow. As a green belt, students learn more advanced techniques and begin to refine their fundamental skills.Blue BeltThe blue belt signifies the blue of the sky. As a blue belt, students grow "taller" in their development as martial artists, just as plants grow higher and closer to the sky. Blue belts have gained a more sophisticated understanding and ability in the martial art they are studying.Red BeltThe red of the red belt usually signifies danger. As a red belt, students have amassed an arsenal of fighting skills and are more than capable of using them. However, they have not progressed to the highest level and must therefore be regarded with caution as they are not yet in full control of their powers.Black BeltBlack is the opposite of white. As a white belt a student had no knowledge of the martial arts. Now, as a black belt a student has been tested and proved their mastery in all the skills and techniques in a particular system of martial arts. Black is the final colored belt you can attain in most martial arts. However, black belts continue to learn and grow as they teach others. Rather than being awarded new colored belts for their progress, those who have already obtained a black belt instead progress by degree, or "dan."I'm a black and red beltaka (second degree black belt)

How long does it take to learn martial arts?

In any Martial Skills training if you think you are getting the hang of it and infact are really good you have not been at it long enough. In many martial arts the step after the highest 'black belt" is to return to a white belt as you are only then ready to learn and understand.Nobody ever learns martial arts. You get technically superior at it, you incorporate the proper understanding and behaviour into your life ... but you are never done. If by "learn martial arts" you mean when can you get black belt or win the sparring matches at your club you can do it in a few months or whenever satisfies the "master" enough to pass you. This does not mean you should fool yourself into thinking you know the Art. If you doubt this, wander into the nearest tough neighbourhood and dis somebody.
