    Buy a ninja costume, then discard the hood, jacket, pants and tabi. Or don't: you're a black belt now, so you might as well dress like a ninja.

    Would it be acceptable for a ninja to wear a black belt when out on a mission, even if he was only actually (say) an orange belt - for the sake of concealment?

    Buy white belt. Dye it black. Get fancy gold kanji/hirigana/katakan embroidered on it.

    There you go, security measures circumvented.

    I spent five years as a purple belt in BJJ. During the last two years I came very close to not giving a damn about the color of the belt I wore around my waist. However, the happiness and elation I experienced after receiving my brown indicates to me that I hadn't given up my desire to be promoted as much as I thought I had.

    What's interesting (well, maybe not to you) is that every time that I've been promoted in BJJ, for a few hours afterward I feel like I'm more of a badass than I was before the promotion. Then the rosy glow fades a bit and I realize that I am the exact same bastard that I was before.

    So for me, being belted to the next rank is a bit of a roller coaster on the first day.

    When I was promoted to shodan, I felt pretty good. Then I showed up for class and my coach literally threw into every corner in of the dojo during randori for about 10 minutes. His comment was "I see your ukemi is pretty good".

    Then he pinned, choked, and arm barred me for another 10 minutes, and told me "I see you know when to tap".

    So much for being a black belt.

    Heh, maybe my reference wasn't clear enough. When you press the +reputation button to credit someone's post (the sheriff star below the avatar) and you have already credited them recently, it (bullshido forum) tells you to go do some pushups.

    Rank gains meaning by being meaningless.
