    How important or significant are they? Is it as big of a compliment as it feels to receive them?

    EDIT:: on a colored belt. blue, purple, brown.

    They are awarded by time spent in the sport. Its something like every 3 years for the first 2, then 4 years, etc...

    Or if your Grandpa is Helio, he can just give you some.
