In most martial arts that have a belt system there are 3 kyu ranks for beginner, 3 kyu ranks of intermediate, and 3 kyu ranks of advanced and then a Black Belt with dan rankings.<br /><br />Within that system I have seen all colors. I use White, WhiteII and then Yellow, Green, Green II and then Purple, and three grades of Brown Belt that seems practical to me.<br /><br />Tae Kwon Do seems to have several more rankings below black belt don't ask me why.<br /><br />It would seem Dr. Jigaro Kano came up with the belt ranking for Judo and the others followed. The age of the person doesn't matter.<br /><br />
