For Adults: White, Blue, Purple, Brown, Black
For Kids (under 16): White, Yellow, Orange, and Green
Promotions are at the discretion of the instructors. Coach Ben decides on the promotions for the adults and Coach Herbert decides on the promotions of the kids. Promotions are a subjective process based on several criteria. Generally we look for participation, consistency, attitude, knowledge, and skill on the mats. Character and leadership traits become more important to these decisions at higher belt ranks.
