The color of the karate belt signifies the level of a practitioner's strength; however, the classification can differ depending on the martial arts organization to which the competitor belongs. Belts also come in different kinds of materials, such as Katsuagi which is easy to tighten, or Shuzi fabric which has a satin like texture and can be used similarly. There is also a sturdy Yohachi fabric, which is of a fine silk-like quality. Since Tozando carries many colors, please consider the following guidelines to be sure you are ordering the proper belt:
No kyu - 7th kyu: White
6th kyu: Green
5th kyu, 4th kyu: Purple
3rd kyu - 1st kyu: Brown
Higher than 1st kyu: Black
