Rank and apparel

↩ Back

Different martial arts have different styles of uniforms that reflect the culture of the country of their origin and the way the uniform is used in training. Belts or sashes are usually worn to indicate the wearers rank. The color of the belt/sash indicates the rank and designators on the belts, such as stripes, indicate the wearers skill level within that rank and their position within the rank hierarchy. Uniforms and the rank and belt systems are closely interconnected so they are all discussed under this subject.
