What are the Aikido ranks?
The ranking structure we follow is that of Capital Aikikai:
The Kyu ranks are 5 through 1, all wearing white belts without hakama (the pleated skirts). The Dan ranks are the black belt rankings and wear hakama.
The color belts are yellow, orange, green, blue, and brown. These belts are for younger students and obtained by testing at Arundel Aikikai. After obtaining brown, younger students are encouraged to test for Kyu ranking.
