What is a red belt?
Red belt is a belt in Pahuyuth. Red belts are worn by teachers.
Origin of the red color
Since time immemorial, red has been the color of the people and of blood. To honor all those who died for peace and freedom, Pahuyuth teachers wear a red belt.
A teacher in the understanding of Pahuyuth is never a “master” or “ruler” over his disciples, but always only a simple but experienced warrior and person who shares his knowledge willingly and always with a recommendatory character.
The role of the teacher is similar to that of a ferryman who has already crossed a raging stream himself and is now helping others with their crossing.
