In UAEJJF competitions one competitor will always wear a red belt, with spectators wondering why.
The red belt is used so referees and scorekeepers can communicate to each other which athlete will receive points during a match. Regardless of the color gi an athlete wears one will always wear a red belt in addition to his given rank.
The referee signals when a competitor with the red belt scores by raising his right hand, which are then registered on the scoreboard in the red square next to his name.
