Re: Poll: How attached do you feel to your physical belt in aikido?

Somewhat attached.

What can I say? It may not be the mature answer, but I like my belt. I have had it since I started almost 5 years ago. It's been through a lot with me, including all five kyu tests. Next year I'll probably take my shodan test and I'll have to wear a new belt. I'll miss this one, even though there won't be much of it left by then!

It's like The Velveteen Rabbit to me.
