There’s more than ONE way to tie a Karate belt.

Walk into a martial arts dojo with a belt tied right! It will show the instructor you are ready to learn!

The uniform used in traditional karate schools is called a dogi (or gi for short) and c onsists of three parts:  the top (kimono), the pants (zubon) and the belt (obi).

Follow the steps below :

Make sure that your jacket ties have been properly secured first (1,2,3).
