Various martial arts follow the system of belt rankings. Karate is one of them.For the beginners, their are 10 ranks (called kyu) which range from white to brown belt. After that, their are 10 more senior ranks (called dan). These are all black belts ranging from 1-Dan to 10-Dan.
It depends on the style of karate. In some styles there is a red belt before reaching Black Belt. In others the red belt represents as the 9th and 10th dan (black belt) in karate.
The word "Dan" is the same as "degree black belt." The dan ranks are different throughout the various martial arts. Some arts do not even have ranking systems. Most that do stop at 9th dan or 10th dan, and the only way to acquire a 10th dan is to be promoted by skill to 9th dan, and then found your own school in that art. This is provided that your particular art has a governing world federation. Karate is governed by the World Karate Federation. Anyone who wishes to open a school of karate must either obtain a 9th dan and then permission from the WKF, or teach independently.
