Best Answer

Uniform requirements vary from style to style.

In the style I study, the gi is white. It is always white, or a natural fiber color, never black or any other color.

Some styles allow instructors to wear black pants with their gi.

I always thought that a black belt on a black gi was a waste. I want the black belt to show up!
