Are these reflective of different Martial Arts? or also used in conjunction with rank?

or are they just to make the fighter colourful.

Sorry for the dumbass question...but when I asked Jeff Curran he never answered me

Some martial arts don't care about your gi. At my dojo, you wear a white gi for the first year.We offer a free 10oz white gi when you sign up for the free trial. After you make green belt, you are able to wear colored a gi.

My colored gi.. school colors are red/black

Our BJJ gi's are blue.. just for the fun... and they are not dojo affiliated, mine is like wearing a shag carpet...

I wear a black gi for Shuri -Te Jitsu and when the white and red and black gi are dirty.

For balintawak.. no gi is required...
