Traditional Karate Belt Tying & Gi Folding Techniques

I have covered the standard way of folding the dogi uniform in a previous post. This video reiterates the process, despite the overly dramatic music at the end, and earlier shows the accepted way to tie a belt or "obi."  

The belt is wrapped round and looped over twice, so to end up with the embroidered belt logo or brand mark on the right, one should start with it on the right side, facing outwards. It isn't difficult to learn, but requires a little practice.
