## Belt system

The Belt system is based on points, which are awarded based on various criteria. The sum of all points determines the user's overall belt level. There are 36 possible belts.

- If the user has fewer than 30 points, they will receive the White belt.
- At 30 points, a Yellow belt will be awarded.
- Every ten/twelve points after that will give the user an extra stripe on their belt.
- After 220 points, 12 points are required per level

- After 4 stripes, the user 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.

- A point total equal to an upper bound will result in the higher level belt (for example, if the user have 292.00 points, they will receive a black belt - not a brown belt).
- The Golden Black-Belt is only awarded if the point total is greater than or equal to 400.00 points.
