Good job, Rachel!

That's interesting about the black gi. At my school, only instructors are allowed to wear a black gi. Anybody else have any gi-wearing rules?

We aren't a real formal school. Students under brown pretty much wear anything they want as long as it is respectful and in decent condition. Most of our students wear gi or other athletic pants with a school or tournament t-shirt and a belt. At brown and up we tend to wear full gi's (usually black, but it depends on the individual) because it simply looks better to have the instructors in uniform.

For tournaments or events everyone wears a full gi.

PS Congratulations Rachel!!! It sounds like you are burning up the ranking charts, tell us a little bit about your test and what it entailed.

First of all Congrats Rachel!

I've put in my order for a black gi. It's used for special occasions, testing, belt ceromonys, tourneys and what not. And I'm only an orange belt myself. My normal color is blue, but that's heading to the embroidery shop to turn it into "MY" gi. So I also have a white Judo Tourney Gi too right now. You can never have enough!

Last year in my school we all wear black gis, this year the new people are requested that if they buy gis they be white.
But in the classes outside uni of one of the instructors is al people white until brown in which they can wear either the jacket or the trousers black, and black belt with a black gi.
And the other instructor is everybody black.

Good Job Rachel!!

In our school we can wear white, black, or a combination of blue and white (white top/blue pants or blue top/white pants). AI's can wear all blue and instructors can wear all blue, white/black combo, and red.

Congrats Rachel !! I love the feeling of a brand new belt around my waist. :p

At my school all the students wear full white uniforms. The blackbelt instructors wear black tops and white bottoms. The directors of the association wear black tops and white bottoms with a black strip down the sides of the legs. Only the very top people of the assoication (about 5) wear all black gi's.

Brown and up only where a black gi. The brown belt must be asst. instructing as well. That's the way it was with my first instructor and the way it will remain with me as well.

Hey way to go Rachel :)

at our school we were all black gi's .. now we have the beginners in white.. and they earn rank to black.. and Brown and above wear the black/red gis'.. the shorter top with velcro is great .. stays outta the way and no more of that silly gi top rearranging I always see on the people with regular wrap gis..
Course Mr. Conatser calls me Brittany .. *rolling eyes*

I wear the Pro pant.. lace up front.. they are nice too cuz they don't have all that baggy crotch material hanging to the knees.. and still let you kick easily:)

Congrats Rachel, now the fun begins.

KenpoTess, I sent Seig a email a couple of weeks ago. I was going to try and plan a trip up your way (weather permitting).

I'll give him a call.

Rachel.. does your school use any advanced belts.. in ours.. the white belts get stripes or tabs as they learn each tec required for yellow.. then we split the tecs and freestyle etc up .. so they get a tab for advanced yellow.. then orange.. advanced orange.. etc..

what are the requirements for orange belt :)
