The first step in your karate training is learning how to tie your belt.
Here are step-by-step instructions for tying your karate belt. I’ve included a video version of these instructions at the end of this article.
(If you need help tying your uniform, watch this video. If you prefer the written version with photos, click here.)
To start, fold the belt in half, making sure that the ends are lined up.
Pull both ends snug before continuing with the next step.
The end of the belt that is on the bottom: fold this back on itself so that it is pointing the other way.
The end of the belt that you pulled through the top: fold this down so that it crosses over the other half of the belt.
And that’s it! That’s how to tie your karate belt correctly. You now look awesome. 😉
