In Cuong Nhu, ranks are represented by colored belts and stripes. When you earn a new stripe, you should sew it onto your belt by your next class. A well secured stripe will last for years, ensuring that it doesn’t fray, come loose, or fall off. Show respect for your rank and the work that went into earning it by treating your stripe and belt properly.

If you still have questions, feel free to post them here or ask your instructor after class. At Redwood Dojo, we also have sewing needles and thread available. Don’t leave your new stripe clipped onto your belt!
