Questions to ask when selecting a Studio Tips on Locating a Studio The Benefits of Martial Arts for Kids

The first thing a martial arts student should learn is how to properly tie their belt: First, the belt should sit above the hip bones and should be tied firmly. Second, the ends of the belt shall be of equal length. Third, in most styles the belt can not cross itself  at the back.

Listed below are easy steps to teach you how to properly tie your belt.
 
 

STEP ONE:

Fold your belt in half with the ends together to find the centre. Place the centre of the belt on stomach just below your navel or place the centre of the belt on your back and make the left side a lot shorter.

STEP TWO:

Pull the belt across your belly and to the back or wrap the right side all the way round so you have two layers round the back and sides. Make sure you wrap it over the top of the left side

STEP THREE:

Take the belt on your right side and cross it over the belt on your left side. Pull both ends around to the front. Bring both sides to the centre of belly or bring both sides to the centre of the belly.

STEP FOUR:

Even the belt all the way around. The belt should not be twisted or crossed at the back.

STEP FIVE:

Cross the right side of the belt over the left.

STEP SIX:

Take the right side of the belt and tuck it under the section already around your waist

STEP SEVEN:

Pull tight.

STEP EIGHT:

Take the top end of the belt (or the left side now) and bend it over the right side

STEP NINE:

Continue to loop the left side under the right side and up and through the hole (now formed by the belt already around your waist and the right side of the belt) up to make the knot. Pull the knot tight making sure that both ends are the same length.

STEP TEN:

If done correctly, the knot should form an arrow shape pointing to your right and both ends are the same length.
