i want thank you all for input on the manner of belts. i canceled my order with meijin and went to a local martial art store today and bought an adidas bb. i did tear off the tag but the belt will do and it seems to be well stitched and well made for a cotten belt.

i went to class last night wearing my white belt again and one of the dans was like why are you still wearing a white belt. i explained its customary to wear a white obi when entering a new school and i would only wear a bb if the instructor asks. i also stated a belt is a belt, the belt does not make me a better mm only i can do that. the instructor agreed and asked me to wear a bb next class.

i was also told i would be testing for nidan next not having to test for my shodan again. this made a difference in my thinking as i will get a belt through my assn. and have it emroidered from them.


thanks again, this made for an interesting and informative post for me.

Just talking about buying one for yourself...of course you couldn't refuse. Long story short...Satin is harder to keep tied.
