Re: American Kenpo Traditions
The belt knot on the side had always irritated me. It's an Obi, not a sash, and it's tied the way it is and the knot placed in the center for a reason. Luckily none of the kenpo schools I ever trained at or with did the knot on the side thing. Even now, when I'm at Doc's I have to remind myself to move it to the side and to stifle the subconscious habit of adjusting it back to the center.
Then again I've seen a few schools that wear gi with sashes, and some wearing Kung fu uniforms with Obi. Both look weird to me.
