The true answer to those that know me is my big b...body, yeah that's the b word I was going for.
The question of colored belts or no colored belts has been repeated ad nauseum, I'm sure, but I have noticed a big difference, even within a single organization, on when or if a brown belt is worn.
The different answers that I have recieved for my organization - ASU are:
1. sankyu - ikkyu
2. nikkyu - ikkyu
3. anyone teaching below the rank of shodan
4. No brown belt only white (kyu) and black (dan)
Is this true for other organizations as well? Please post organizations with your reply.
