Sorry for the misunderstanding.
The dojo I train in awards the black belt from 2nd kyu upwards. We get to wear the hakama only after attaining Shodan. Don't ask me why, I didn't create the ranking system.
Hope that cleared things up!
Thanks, that helps. Out of curiousity, what school and what style do you train in? I've never heard of black belt being awarded to anyone but shodan. This isn't an attack on you or your school, I'm just curious.
