A karate-style belt is a symbol of martial arts pride, pride in a country, pride that is linked to the martial art and pride that you are an American.
A karaoke belt is also a symbol, but in this case, it is a badge of honor and a badge that has been worn for years by some of the most famous people in the United States.
The AP has ranked the top 50 best karate belts in the world based on factors including popularity, durability, aesthetics, and the ability to hold weight.
The rankings include the top 10,000 most popular karate titles and the top 30,000 best karaokes.
The rankings are based on a list compiled by The Associated Press of the top 100 most-watched shows, movies and music videos on YouTube, ESPN, CBS, CNN, Fox, HBO, and Showtime, among others.
They were released Wednesday.
In a statement, the AP said that the top 20 most-viewed shows and movies and the most-attended sporting events are the best sources of information about karate and karate fans.
“This ranking provides an accurate gauge of the popularity of karate in the U.S.,” said Mark Smith, a professor at the University of South Florida who studies karate.
“The rankings include shows that have been watched more than 150 million times and have aired more than 100 million times.”AP News writer Eric Tucker contributed to this report.
