The way things work in our dojo, is you have to gain 3 stripes on your belt before you earn your next belt. You do not actually get the new belt until graduation night, therefore you wear your current belt with the 3 stripes on it until graduation and that signals that you are actually the higher belt rank.

A little over a month ago I posted that I was earned for my Orange Belt (9th Kyu) and that my son had earned his first stripe on his white belt.

Last Friday night was graduation and I actually got my orange belt to wear instead of a white belt with three orange stripes.

The next day, this past Saturday happened to be a review day for some individuals. Since I had been putting a ton of hours in at the dojo and been working hard as an Orange belt for a solid month, my Sensi decided to review what I had known.

I was under the impression that it was just to see where I was and what else I needed to work on. Apparently I nailed it all because at the end of the class he called me up and put 3 gold stripes on my Orange belt which officially makes me a Gold Belt (8th Kyu).

Then he called a few of the white belts up. Two of them were my son and a close friend of our's son. They both earned 2 additional orange stripes, thus officially making them Orange belts(9th Kyu).

I couldnt be prouder of the hard work these kids are putting into the art.

Here is a picture of us after the class was over.

Congrats! Many a moon ago, I trained there, and I remember how awesome it was to get those first few belts! Once you get to yellow belt, the promotions will slow down a bit though, but keep up the hard work. It will definitely pay off!
