    Question each degree of a belt color and each belt color

    For Ed Parker Kenpo, is each degree within one belt color the same as the difference between each belt color?

    Hi and welcome to KenpoTalk

    If I'm understanding the question..
    In our curriculum (I.K.K.O.) We use belt tabs between belt ranks. White belt student learns all but the last 5 Yellow tecs and short 1 (they then earn a yellow tab for their belt when they test for advanced white) when they learn the last 5 tecs and short 1, they test for yellow belt with ALL the material.

    When they tie on yellow belt, they then learn all the Orange belt material except the last 8 tecs and the form. An orange tab is sewn on when they learn that, (Advanced Orange) then when they learn all the orange material they test for purple.
    so forth through Green belt.

    same goes for all belts up to brown where we have 3rd,2nd and 1st degree browns.

    Each EPAK school has it's own ways.. so you will see variances.

    it's not a full rank.. but an advanced rank of whatever color belt they have tied on.

    IKKO
    white
    advanced white
    yellow
    advanced yellow
    orange
    advanced orange
    purple
    advanced purple
    blue
    advanced blue
    green
    advanced green
    brown 3 (1 black stripe)
    brown 2 (2 black stripes)
    brown 1 (3 black stripes)
    1st Black

    I hope this helps.

    ~Tess
