I don't want to open a new topic for this thing. I have one question concerning a brand new black belt. The white tag (often indicates obi size/length, positioned under brand label), should it be removed (cut off) before use or should it stay on the obi belt. I've seen many aikidokas have them on, but also a lot of them are without one. Some of them don't even have brand labels on anymore, so it is blank (black) only embroidery if they have one. Any particular rule about that?
Thanks for any reply.
