The martial arts belt or sash is a representation of a student’s experience and the time he or she has dedicated to training in the martial arts. We carry a wide variety of belts and sashes to accommodate the different belt systems in the different styles of martial arts.
It has been said that the ancient students started with white belts and over the years the white belts became black from all the training the student did. Some argue that is only legend, but it is exactly what the belt or sash ranking systems in modern martial arts represents. A belt color is earned for each level of expertise involving not only skill but time spent training.
