How do you tie the belt on a martial arts uniform?

Starting with the center of the belt at your mid-line, circle the belt behind you and around each side to the front again. The right side will go over the top of the left behind you and continue around to meet in the front. The belt should make 2 loops around you at this point. From here the right side goes over the left and wraps around the left side and the center together. Pull tight and adjust so that the belt is even. Then, the current left side goes over the right side only and pulls tight. You should be able to fit your left pinky into a small hole left in the belt knot.
