hehe, oh the memories

MrDash there are many different ways of tying your belt, but I don't know of any websites which explain. Also, its hard to explain without diagrams. Try asking your instructor or a fellow student when you next go to your class

The way I remember is right over left, left over right.

Your fellow students will be more than happy to help you I am sure, as jack said.

Master Jeoff Booth has a page that shows belt tying. The address is...

http://hapkido.netro.com.au/Belt.html

I hope this helps.
Take care.

"Traditionally" this is how to tie TKD belt:

Hold belt at its center, ends even, with stripes (if you have them) on the left side. Place center of belt on front center of jacket, about one inch below the naval (a location called the tanden). Wrap belt around your waist, crossing the right side over the left side at center of the back. Stripes will now be on your right side. Pull ends of belt forward and adjust so the ends are even.

Lay the left side of belt over the tanden. Lay the right side of belt across the tanden. Stripes will now be on your left side.
Slide the left side of belt (striped side) under and behind all the belt layers at the tanden. Stripes will still be on your left side.

Loop
Bring left (striped) end of belt down and over the front of the U

Loop striped end under and up through the U
shape to form a knot.

Pull ends of belt outward to tighten knot. Stripes will be on your right side.
Adjust knot so the ends of belt are even and hang neatly.

Chris that was a nicely depicted group of pictures and explanation in that web site.

Rushman how right you are. The first time I tied someone else belt it took forever and it was a bit embarrasing. I did get better at it with a lot of practice.

At our big tests designated senior students get detailed to go to the back of the lineup and help the newly promoted no longer white belts tie their new belts. Most are young kids and are only wearing their gi for the first or second time and have not had much if any practice at tying their belts.
