Same ranks, but different colours?
Please excuse me for the newbee questions, but I´ve noticed that similar (at least I think so) rankings, have different colour belts associated with them. I don´t know if it depends on the country or just the dojo, but it confused me a little bit.
I´m in Brasil righ now, where I´m facing White/Yellow/Purple/Green/Blue/Brown, but I´ll probably be heading back to europe where they have Orange and Red somewhere in the middle.
So how does it actually work?
After some reading, I´ve came up with a note refering that there were even some dojos that only recognise White/Black.
Are the sistems recognized between each other under the same "branch", or am I missing something?
Thanking you in advance,
