Unrelated to Aikido but interesting regarding ranking:
In my current gym the ranks are limited to only white, blue, purple, brown, and black, but since each apparently takes an exceptionally long time to achieve the non-black ones have been broken into four stripes, so, essentially 19 "kyu ranks" to be achieved.
That's a hell lot of money spent on examinations...
In my dojo colors are as follows:
5th kyu - yellow
4th kyu - orange
3rd kyu - green
2nd kyu - blue
1st kyu - brown
dan levels - black
I like colors, it would be so boring to always be a white belt...
