Colored Belt or White,
when I first started training aikido, we used to wear white belt until the first Kyu. I used to think that this is an exception for aikido. In Judo, KarateDo etc. They were wearing colored ones.
But a few months ago, our Sensei told us that aikidokas are also going to have color belts. Now, every Kyu has its color, like in other martial arts.
I wonder, is this in your country the same ? have you ever had color belts or are you still wearing white belts until you became 1.st Kyu...do you think it was a need, the change?
