Tying Your Karate Belt
Start with one end of the belt and place it near the navel. This end will remain static for most of the belt tying procedure.
Hold one end in place and wind the other, long end around your body.
Place the long end over the short end while holding the short end in place in the center of your body.
Now wrap the long end around your body a second time.
Bring the long end towards the center.
Place the long end of the belt over the short end.
Push the long end under both layers of the belt.
Now position the long end over the short end (also to the left, from your point of view).
Now grab the short end and move it to the other side (it was on the left, from your point of view, now pull it to the right).
Move the short end over the long end, we're about to tie a knot.
Pull the long end through the loop you formed in the previous step.
That's pretty much it. We now have the right type of knot.
Now tighten the knot firmly so it doesn't loosen during the training session.
We're done. This is a perfectly tied Karate belt.
