How to Tie your Belt

Follow the steps below to tie your karate belt.

 

Step One: Begin with the belt in front of you. Place one end of the belt in front of your left leg (this is the end with the strips, if you have some on your belt).

Step Three: Wrap the same end around a second time. If your belt is VERY long, wrap it around a third time.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

Step Four: Take the end that has been wrapped around your body, and insert it underneath the center of your belt. It should pass under all the different layers, including the end hanging off your left.
