What belt ranks do we use?
As with most martial arts you start out with a white belt. Most belts have a 1st degree & 2nd degree rank. After you earn your 2nd degree rank in a belt color, you can promote to the next belt color. So After 2nd degree white belt, comes yellow belt, after 2nd yellow, comes green belt, after 2nd green, comes blue belt, after 2nd blue, comes red belt, and after 2nd red comes brown belt. The final belt being black belt.
