Basics by Belt Level
Belt Tying 101
Here's how we tie our belts at Greensboro Black Belt Academy!
I used one of our striped belts so that it's easy to see hopefully! Directions refer to YOUR left and right if you were looking down as you tie your belt.
This is one way to remember it:
1) Middle in the front
2) (After crossing in the back) right tucks under
3) Left over right, tuck under both layers
4) Right over left
5) Pull tight
*You can get the same result with a left-handed knot just by swapping all the above directions.
If your belt ends are sticking straight up and down, then it's because you've used the same pattern for steps 3 & 4 of the knot (i.e. left-over-right twice). Whether you do a right-handed or left-handed knot, remember to switch which side is on top for the 2nd tie in the knot!
