American Top Team has no stripes and Belts go White Green Blue Purple Brown Black(Black has stripes)
The usual White,Blue,Purple,Brown,Black - no stripes.
The green belt thing is fine, in that the skill level at whitebelt ranges from nothing to pretty f'n decent and another belt in there probably would be best - but as it's not standard doesn't it make things aquward when going for comps?
or do all greens fight in whitebelt divisions?
Exactly the same at my school ^^^ white,blue,purple,brown,black all no stripes
white, blue, purple, brown, black with 4 stripes in between
I thought that white-blue-purple-brown-black was pretty much standard and yellow-orange-green thrown in there for the kids at most schools.
white, blue, purple, brown all can have 4 stripes and then black
where i go they have regular white belt,a certain belt for 2nd stripe, 3rd stripe belt, 4th stripe belt, blue, blue/purple, purple, purple/brown, brown, brown/black, black
but u compete with the regular white,blue,purple,brown,back
stripes on the white belt, but thats it
no stripes just standard belts
I always liked stripes for white belts...keeps the gnubs interested cause they know they are advancing
no belts we use shirts and hackney gives them personaly. no testing crap you get the next shirt because hr feels you are ready for it
white=new avg.2weeks to several months depending on prev. exp.
yellow=intermediate start sparring stay here for a while (18 mo. myself)
green=advanced few go past here
brown=only a few here generlly after 3 or 4 years and 7+ pro fights
black only gideon and keith have this one make it to UFC and get one
standard belts, 3 stripes on each, except for brown which has 4
White,blue,purple, brown and three stripes in each belt.
