This is not to test thier knot-tying ability, but it puts responsibility into thier hands and takes it out of thier parents. When a kid forgets thier belt (or pants, or jacket, or whatever), I hold them to the same standard of responsibility that I do adults. I have loaner belts, and they cost 50 to 200 push ups to rent- depending on color.

    That's a good system, I'm having that. Cheers.

    Rant over...

    Why worry if they are tied a certain way? Just let them tie them however they manage to keep the belt around their waist.

    I wear belts to train and have always wondered why the obsession with proper belt tying proceedures.

    That's true, the idea is to keep the gi on. Finally i just figured that out not to long ago, i used to be a pit anal about the thing being tied on a certain way.

    What an ass i was being!

    Because reality is perception to new students and if we had ass looking students (dress wise) the school would look like crap. Besides that how some Mcdojo's are and their students are crap most of the time. There still should be some pride in appearance.

    That's why BJJ guys have all those cool looking gay gi's with all the patches.

    I'm just going to sit here a while, savoring both the truth and the comedy inherent in that remark.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Fear the patches. We can not have enough patches on our gis, in fact I am searching for empty spots, calf patches are next. :5slick:

    These belts are just the MA equivalent of a clip-on tie. Nerdy, but harmless.
