You know, there is a rather nifty tradition for these colored belts
might help with the problem of the "Who are you apprenticed, etc. to
not)?" questions. And its rather a nice homage to one's peer.

That is to paint or other wise place the arms of your peer on the end
the colored belt. That gives people the idea that you are wearing a

apprenticed to
that Laurel. Then, (this is the nifty part) when you receive the
you paint or other wise mark the same belt with your arms above the
arms and hand that to your new (for example) apprentice. The belt
becomes a
sort of written history of who was who's apprentice. I use
apprentices and
Laurels for this example but, in fact, this custom is done by all
