Origins of the Coloured Belts in Martial Arts ?

Martial Arts Gradings and the Value and Respect of the Coloured Belt.

By Henry Ellis

There are many varied ideas of the origins of the grading by coloured belts. It is a system that we the `Ellis Schools of Traditional Aikido follow from the 1950s with the legendary Budoka Kenshiro Abbe Sensei until this modern day.
