## Belt system

The Belt system is based on a points: points are awarded based on various criteria and the sum of all points determines your overall belt level. There are 36 possible belts.

- If you have less than 30 points, you will receive the White belt.
- At 30 points, a Yellow belt will be awarded.
- Every ten/twelve points after that will give you an extra stripe on your belt.
- After 220 points, 12 points are required per level

- After 4 stripes, you will be awarded a new color belt.
- With the exception of the black belt.

- At 400 points, the Golden Black Belt (the highest ranking) is awarded.
