Re: Belt rankings in Aikido
Wow.... just goes to show ya, doesn't it?
In our dojo, the kyu colors are
2nd something else...
1st brown and may wear hakama
then for 1st dan onward, black with hakama.
When my husband was practicing in bujinkan, they had 7 or 8 kyu ranks, and the lowest was white, all the rest green up until your black-belt test. First dan onward wore black.
I plan to print off the humor listing of belt ranks, just to remind myself that it's not about ego and hierarchy. Thanks for that!
