I know I just made purple belt not more than a few weeks ago, but there was a small issue I had to deal with. My new purple belt wasn’t all that purple. And it wouldn’t stay tied.
I thought it was purple the night of the promotions. When compared to the blue belts of the same brand that were given out, what I was given certainly did look different. But when compared to the color blue in general, my belt seemed to be more closely matched with that. Here, take a look at my purple belt post and you tell me.
I really like the Koral brand. I have three gis made by Koral and besides the pants ripping after a few years, I would say their stuff is really good. That, coupled with the fact that my instructor Jeff has a really cool looking, broken in purple belt made by Koral, made this purchase a no brainer. The only thing I am trying to square in my mind is the sentimentality of the initial belt that was tied around my waist as I was being promoted. If I can bring that to a resolution, I think I’ll really enjoy this new belt. It ties quite snugly.
