The practitioner’s belt denotes his/her rank, symbolic of his/her experience.  The belt used in BJJ has a black stripe on one of the ends of the belt, which is an area designated for stripes.  A practitioner must earn up to four stripes on his/her belt before being considered ready for a next belt.  The color-belt system starts with white, then blue, purple, brown, black, black-red and finishes with red.
