The number of rankings varies from school to school, so this is only a general idea.

There are typically anywhere from 6 to 12 ranks in the kyu, or under black belt levels. The colors generally run from lighter to darker the closer to black belt you get. White is the lowest level, normally brown is the highest color.

There are ten levels of black belt. Isshinryu typically uses the traditional Okinawa ranking, which means that 7 and 8th degree black belts wear a red and white striped belt, and 9th and 10th wear red belts.
