Re: Belt Washing and Embroidery

There's a story at my dojo about a dude who never washed his gi. It was so full of salt it could stand by itself. Now that's a lot of sweat! Maybe he didn't notice the salt because the gi was white?

About the belt there's a saying that if one washes ones belt you wash away your knowledge. Long time ago there where no colors on the belt. Only a white belt that gradually got darker because of all the dirt. When it was it was so dirty it was almost black a new belt was given - a black one. This may be old stories without relevance today, but they might still be fun to know anyway.
