The color of obi’s (belts) for kyu kenshi has been changed.
- There’s a new kyu rank, instead of 5 kyu’s there are 6 now.
- The color sequence of obi’s is now:
- Minarai kenshi: white
- 6th, 5th and 4th kyu: green
- 3rth, 2nd and 1st kyu: brown
So, if you are wearing yellow, orange, green or blue you can change your obi for another color.
