What is the appropriation level?

The approproiation, intermediate or white belt level is the second of a total of three student belt steps (see learning level) of the Pahuyuth. Members of the appropriation level wear a white belt.


The combat knowledge of Pahuyuth is traditionally compared to a pure white cloth, which only discolors by its use. To hint Pahuyuth intermediate students to the difference between knowledge and its usefulness or use, they wear white belts.

Teaching contents of the appropriation level

The teaching contents of the appropriation level (white belt) mainly refer to integrating the basic level techniques (green belt) into one’s own combat methodology and to further develop them.

This development process is divided into five learning contents. They are considered to be the guiding criteria for the qualification exam for the black belt.

  1. Self-correction
  2. Self-development
  3. Self-assessment
  4. Self-Knowledge
  5. Self-Discipline

The carrier’s worthiness to the black belt results from the formation of self-responsibility or personal responsibility.
