The Black Belt
The Black Belt
The Black Belt is part of the Jiu Jitsu Series that is based on the belt levels attained by practitioners of Jiu Jitsu. Other than Red Belt worn by Masters, this is the highest level you can obtain in this martial art as a practitioner.
This bracelet is made of Crystal Quartz, Hematite and Black Onyx.
The middle stone is engraved with the Jiu Jitsu Kanji (柔術) and the black onyx stones are engraved with Yamatodamashii. The Samurai Spirit.
Clear crystal quartz is a master healer that amplifies energy. It absorbs, stores and releases positive energy.
Onyx provides strength, stamina and power and promote the fighting Samurai spirit. It is also great for negating negative energy, enhancing self-control and encourages wise decision making.
The hematite on the ends works the body's yin-yang energies to balance the ions within, whilst promoting focus and concentration.
The black thread represents the way a belt is wrapped around the waist.
The Japanese symbols/kanji says "Yamatodamashii" (大和魂) which is roughly translated to "The Samurai Spirit". It was a name given to Enson by the Japanese media and people for the way he fought. It evolved into a philosophy and way of life as it incorporates values of Integrity, Honor, Compassion and Loyalty. So it has become a way of living and values to aspire to and live through. There is much more depth to the philosophy than the simple description here, there is an interview which covers part of Enson’s perspective on Yamatodamashii here.
