Karate Coloured Belts (Kyu Ranks)
Bushido Martial Arts Karate uses a similar Coloured Belt ranking system to that used in many styles of Karate.
It uses 4 formal levels of Coloured Belt and incorporates into these levels a number of 'Tip' levels, giving 8 levels of Coloured Belt.
White belt is the starting rank with students progressing towards their Brown belt. All junior students have a white stripe to indicate their junior rank.
The list below shows the Kyu or Coloured Belt levels used (the pictures depict a senior belt).
