    He came in wearing a black belt this time as opposed to his usual purple belt. Is that a karate belt or something? Does anyone know?

    I wasn't paying close attention, but it looked brown to me. He's been training with fabio hollando for a while now, and I think he's had a purple belt for a while, so he could have been promoted to brown recently. If he was wearing a black belt, it wasn't for bjj.

    I think it was brown as well, but I may be wrong.

    It was a black belt in Kyokushin. Even his gi was a karate one.

    If I'm not mistaken most people call it "gi".. which is the martial arts uniform.

    Yeah he is a black belt in karate, but I dont think hes close to getting his brown yet. He was just recently like within the past year (or so I beleive) promoted to purple, so I doubt he'd be getting his brown so quickly.

    Bullshit. It is a Gi OR Uniform. They are interchangable.

    Yes Karate calls it a gi also. I'm guessing they call it a "uniform" instead of a gi sometimes as it sounds like foreign for practitioners here in the US.

    god some people are retarded on here.

    you'd think a martial art from japan would actually USE the japanese word for the martial arts outfight (gi).

    people nowadays.

    Well.. kyokushin has been very well proven, and is a very good martial art to learn.

    I think people don't use the word Kimono is because it's really vague. Google Kimono and you'll find a bunch of japanese dresses.
