Re: White belt to 6th kyu (yellow belt)

It means you've probably learned enough to participate in a class and come out of getting thrown without getting hurt, and that maybe you've learned the basics of a few techniques. "They" (whoever "they" are) say that you've only really started to understand anything after you get to "shodan" or "first degree black belt." Having passed that milestone, I still wonder if I understand anything.
