Uniforms Gis+Belts and Ranks


 Children’s Ranks and their correlative belts

For each belt we request $10 upon passing to the next rank, although belts can also be purchased at cost.

Tests and rank advancement are optional. "Advanced" children's ranks use the same color belt as before, adding a stripe of tape or a sewn band of dark cloth.
