How to tie your karate belt

By yourself!

  • Always keep the belt even
  • Remember: over bellybutton, crisscross behind, then return to front
  • Right over left (the student’s right side) and tuck through both
  • Left over right (the student’s left side) and tuck through one
  • Pull tight so it stays on during class
  • Do not play with, step on, or wash the belt
  • Carry the belt with the pants and top inside nice bag—not a plastic bag
