    Hi, I used to train in Judo years ago when I was a kid and our instructor always wore a red and white striped belt :

    |red|white|red|white|red|white|red|white|red|white|red|white| etc

    from memory I guess each segment was of about 2-4" long, I was wondering if this signified anything?

    Red and white striped belts are 6th to 8th Dan, so you're instructor must have been pretty good!

    Thanks. He was awesome, he was about 80 years old at the time, and alas has died now :(
