Greetings all,
My daughter found some of my older belts when I started Karate back in the 80‘s and I was hoping anyone on here could translate what they actually say. My teacher was Okinawan and would hand write these on all my belts. I was In my early teens when I started so it never dawned on me to ask. My higher belts are so worn they actually are missing fabric so they are useless to read. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you all!

I can only make out the yellow belt. The first character is ‘Bu’ as in budo. The last character is ‘kai’ as in association. The middle character is a mystery to me. Bu-something-kai if that helps at all 🤷🏾

Great thanks!! Now I just have to figure out the style of Karate. Would it be Butoku Kai Karate Do?
I’ve just done a Google search and there is a Butokukai Karate, but it was a nice 1984 US invention. You’re going to have to do some real digging!
