Belt system

[This page is subject to change as policy is refined.]

The following is the official rank/colour system of the Ryukyu Kyuryo Shorin Ryu karate system.

White belt stripes (ages 17 & under)

To provide benchmarking‚Äč for younger students, our Karate school has implemented belt stripes for white belts.

STRIPE REQUIREMENTS
Yellow has memorized FUKYUGATA ICHI
Orange has memorized FUKYUGATA NI
Green has memorized PINAN SHODAN
Blue coming soon
Black coming soon

Stripes go on the left end of the white belt, starting about two centimeters from the tip with a quarter inch separation between stripes.
