     Style: Shotokan?

    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The Not So Complex Art of Belt Tying.

    I've looked around on the internet, found some resources, but none that are very easy to follow -- and most are drawn pictures.

    Does anybody have a .wmv or something of a proper east/west (as opposed to north/south) belt tie?

    Or maybe somebody can explain it in detail? I'm looking for the one where you start with the center of your belt below your navel.

    Sorry to sound like such an idiot. I'm on my approx. 2nd Shotokan session, and can only get the first couple of steps correct.

    Thanks in advance.


    PS - If anybody remembers me from my earlier thread about Mikami, LKA, and the ASKF... It's a good school. I'd recommend it. Not much weight from someone who cannot tie their own belt, though.

    Try putting the center around the center of your neck, around the adams apple. Now wrap it around behind, then around in front, several times until you run out of slack. Make sure it is good and tight, then make a loop with one layer of the wrapping and put it around a high hook (coat hanger, door edge) and enjoy!

    Seriously though, Ask your teacher, don't waste our time with this stuff.

    I could tell you how I tie my knot, but my fortune cookie points the wrong way.

    Actually, I think certain styles tie it differently. I don't think Shotokan does the same as Tang Soo Do, if my memory serves me correctly.

    I could very well be wrong, however.
    DIDN'T YOU KNOW?! The Chinese know everything! And they knew it 4,000 years before YOU did!

    In Japanese styles, the arrow should point to the left.

    Here is an entire website devoted to tying the obi on traditional outfits, for anyone interested. I assume a gi uses one of these knots.
