    LIke most other answers, it depends on the style.

    I practice Tang Soo Do, and the belt sequence is : White, Orange, Green, Red, Black.

    There are also different levels of each color belt, for example, White Belts have to earn 2 blue stripes before moving onto an Orange belt. An Orange belt has to earn 6 stripes (2 orange, 2 blue, and 2 black) before moving onto a Green Belt... and so on.

    Also, the school I practice with does not have belt fees...it is all included in the yearly tuition, so that has nothing to do with it. It lets the instructors and peers know what level you are at. Also, certain forms have to be learned in order to earn stripes on a belt. It provides a sense of accomplishment and provides short term goals ( especially good for the children) as well as long term goals.

    It depends on what martial art you take. The Americanized version have all kinds of colors, with different color bands. Though I sound cynical, its because they make good money off of belt tests. But, for instance, in traditional Shotokan, there is only levels of white, brown and black (called ques). Why? Because the more experience you have in fights, the dirtier your belt would get. White for newbies, black for the most experienced.

    I have a black belt 1st degree in Tae Kwon Do (korean karate). Colors vary by schools, but here's how they are in my school. Belt colors and ranking in order: White Yellow (some schools use a White 1st degree instead) Orange (some use a White 2nd degree) Green Blue Purple (some schools use a blue and red mix instead) Red Brown Brown 1st degree Black 1st degree (1 yr before allowed to test for 2nd deg.) Black 2nd degree (Can run a school recognized by ITF) Black 3rd degree Black 4th degree Black 5th degree Black 6th degree (minimum 20 yrs of training) Black 7th degree Black 8th degree (It took my instructor 37 yrs to earn this) Black 9th degree Black 10th degree, Grand Master (Chuck Norris is this rank. One must practice martial arts for more than 40 years to be awarded the title) Starting with purple, students must accumulate at least 24 class hours in rank before they can promote again. I had asked my instructor why some schools are different in the lower belt colors. My instructor said that he uses all available colors so he can tell what level students are from afar. Karate suits= My school wears white suits in spring and summer, and black in fall and winter. Saturday classes and tournaments allow either suit or mixing, such as wearing the white top with the black pants, or vice versa. "macdaddy", the word karate is a generic term. NOBODY"S black belt is really in karate. It is usually in Kenpo, Tang Soo Do, or various other styles. My instructor's master was the guy who brought TKD to Vietnam after WWII. TKD by itself is not good for up close. 5 akido moves are incorporated with each belt level at my school.
