Why do we need to tie Karate belts in a specific way?
In addition to keeping your gi top in place during vigorous training sessions, properly tying your Karate belt also helps you to demonstrate your respect for your martial arts training and your reverence for the significant meaning behind Karate belts. A sloppily or hastily tied karate belt, in that case, can send the message that your respect for the martial art and your attention to detail are lacking. A neat and carefully tied belt, on the other hand, is another way to signal your humble respect for your discipline, your sensei, your teammates, and yourself.
